Easy Scrambled Tofu
Scrambled tofu is pretty versatile and fool proof. Here is my recipe, but feel free to tweak it as I do constantly. Eat it with some toast, hash, or in a burrito. You pretty much cannot go wrong here.
1pkg extra firm tofu, drained and crumbled
1/4 c nutiritional yeast
1/4 c Daiya vegan cheese
1/4 your favorite salsa
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1-2 T olive oil
1-2 c chopped mixed veggies (I used leftover potato, red pepper, tomatoes, olives, onion, zucchini), this is a great time to raid your fridge and get rid of odds and ends!
1 avocado, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a large skillet heat your oil. Add any veggies with a longer cook time (ie onion, pepper), cook for a few minutes.
2. Add crumbled tofu, nutritional yeast, vegan cheese, salsa, garlic powder, turmeric. Cook, stirring occasionally until the excess moisture has evaporated and veggies are tender. Usually about 10-15 minutes. Your tofu should be golden with a few brownish spots.
3. Serve, topped with sliced avocado.
