Tofu Scramble

tofu scramble

There are about a zillion vegan tofu scramble recipes out there; here’s mine.  It’s simple and straightforward, as good comfort food should be.  (Please excuse the mediocre night-lit photo. September is not an easy month and I’m struggling to keep up with Vegan Mofo.  Scroll down for a cute photo.  XO.)

1/4 block of firm tofu, patted with a towel and gently squeezed, but not pressed
olive oil
1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
salt and black pepper
squeeze of fresh lemon (~1/4 small lemon should do it)
generous handful of arugula
chopped tomato
toast for serving, optional

Heat olive oil in a small frying pan over medium heat and crumble in the tofu with your hands.  Season with nutritional yeast and a bit of salt, and stir to mix.  Heat for a few minutes, stirring frequently, just until lightly browned.  Stir in arugula and lemon juice, then turn off heat.  Season with pepper and a bit more salt (if needed) and serve topped with tomatoes, on toast if desired.

Yield: 1 serving

      Aww thank you! I’m just so reliant on natural light for my photos that artificial light intimidates me. And, yeah, not much can compare to the cuteness of a sweet, furry cat belly! 🙂

    I will never get tired of tofu scramble, and I love scramble recipes.

    Though I am mostly taken by that cutie patootie little kitty lying with their hand up.
