SCRAMBLE YOUR SUNDAY BREAKFAST!

Hey folks!

Happy Sunday morning to ya!  I hope the weekend is treating you well.  It's been a while since I posted a breakfast recipe, so I thought I would share one today.  The other day on my Facebook page, I posted an article about jazzing up tofu scramble.  If you're not aware, tofu scramble is something that many use as s substitute for scrambled eggs.  It has the same texture and consistency.  If tofu is new to you, you may be a little leary, but I suggest you just try it once before making up your mind! 

The following recipe from VegWeb, posted by "little2ant", got rave reviews and sounds quite delicious!



TOFU SCRAMBLE

Cheez sauce:

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup nutritional yeast (this can be found in most natural food stores or Whole Foods in the bulk section-great source of Vitamin B12).
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups water
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
4 tablespoons vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance)

Stir fry:

1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
cooking oil, as needed
1 pound extra firm tofu, drained and crumbled (not silken style)
pinch turmeric, optional
salt and pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

For cheez sauce, mix first 3 ingredients together in sauce pan. Add water and mix thoroughly. Heat on medium until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and add mustard and margarine. Set aside. 
For stir fry, saute onion and green pepper in oil. When they are good and soft, move them to the sides of the pan and form an empty circle in the middle for your tofu.

Add more oil to the middle of the pan, then add your drained, crumbled tofu. When it starts to get golden, mix in the peppers and onion and keep frying. You can add some turmeric for color, if you like.

When it looks like you could eat it, add the cheez sauce and mix it all in to coat, until that becomes golden brown too. I saute this for another couple of minutes. You might not need all of the sauce. I save the leftovers for pizza or nachos. Add salt and pepper to taste (this makes all the difference!).

  1. Thank you for posting this scramble. I'm currently on day 9 of the vegan challenge and scrambled cheese eggs is what I miss more than anything. I plan to make these "eggs" this weekend. Please checkout my journey when time permits.
