Tofu Scramble

Okay, so I haven't posted in a while. This blog is quickly becoming a vegan food porn site LOL. But I cannot help sharing great tasting, healthy recipes with you.

I love eggs, that is a fact. But I cannot have eggs without sending my cholesterol to the moon. But I gotta tell ya, tofu scrambles have made my longing for eggs a thing of the past. They are delish! Tofu has the same consistency as egg white and takes on the flavors and spices you cook with it. There are spice packets you can buy to add to your tofu, but it is pretty simple to use your own mix of spices as well.

This one is about 3 oz of silken firm tofu with pea pods, mushrooms, roasted bell pepper, sliced sun dried tomato and Morningstar Farm's breakfast sausage.

I used a spice mix of steak salt, onion powder and turmeric. I used my mortar and pestle to grind them together to a fine powder to add to the tofu which I added to the stir fry last. Gave it a quick toss to warm it to eating temp and served it.

Note: you can also add nutritional yeast flakes (get them at Whole Foods or your favorite health foods store). They add a really tasty cheesy flavor that is fabulous! Don't confuse with regular baking yeast.

This was sooooo yummy!
