Try Me on A Friday: Spring Tofu Scramble
As a vegan, I don't eat eggs, but I remember growing up in my house, my mum used to make a lot of scrambled eggs!! She would add peppers and onions are all sorts to make it good! However, I just can't stand the smell of eggs at all - even the vegan "egg" smells like real eggs. I've seen plenty of recipes online using tofu or ackee as a replacement and I thought I would try it out myself and give you guys my verdict. So here is my take on a tofu scramble;
Spring Tofu Scramble (Serves 4 at 94kcal per serving)
100g Mixed peppers
50g Spring Onions
1/2 TBSP of Tumeric (or curry powder)
1 TBSP Herbs de provence
1 TBSP Black pepper (you can add more or less if you like)
A pinch of salt
-In a heated pan, add your oil along with your chopped up veggies and tofu.
-Give the mixture a good stir as you add in your spice mix
-Keep the scramble on a low heat for another 10 mins max and that is literally all it takes
As you can see from my picture above, you can eat your tofu scramble with anything!! I am a big lover of hash browns, so why not serve some as part of an English breakfast. I also used my sandwich maker to make a toasted sandwich filled with spinach, tofu scramble and ketchup! Yes I said ketchup! You can add sliced tomatoes, but I found it makes the toasted sandwich pretty wet!
Well it's certainly a thumbs up for me. There were no egg like smells for me and tofu really absorbs flavours very well. If I had to make this all over again, I would drain the tofu more and I have tried the same method with ackee and it tastes just as good. In terms of nutrition,tofu is a great source of plant based protein that is full of calcium (so great for strong bones and good teeth)
