Scrambled Tofu

People often tell me they do not like Tofu (Bean Curd) but I feel differently. I admit Tofu is not the most exciting of foods. It is bland but you can easily jazz it up with a good sauce. Deep fried tofu dipped in sweet chilli sauce is awesome. If you were not already aware I do not eat meat and I am allergic to milk and eggs. Many of the meat substitutes available e.g Quorn are not suitable for me as they contain milk and egg. There are different types of Tofu and the supermarkets tend to sell firm or silken. If you have a Chinese supermarket within easy reach go check out what they stock because from experience they will have different varieties. Tofu is a good source of protein for vegetarians/vegans and is low in calories

I like to make scrambled tofu as a replacement for scrambled eggs. There are many recipes online so it’s a case of finding what suits your own taste buds.

I mash up the tofu with a fork then add turmeric, garlic or paprika and soya sauce. You can add peppers, mushrooms, spring onions whatever takes your fancy. Then you simply heat in a pan for about 3 -4 minutes. You just want to warm the tofu not fry it or turn it brown.

I like to eat this as part of a fry up breakfast or simply with buttered toast or a granary roll with lashings of tomato ketchup. Sometimes I may add baked beans or use Vegemite on my toast instead of dairy free margarine. 

Does anyone else make scramble tofu? Do you have any recipes to share?

  1. Hello Sugarpuffish :) I usually just slice mine (cheese on toast style) or dice it up in a stir-fry fashion. Never thought to scramble it, will have to give this a go!! :)

  3. I've never made a tofu scramble, but I love baking thinly cut tofu. I think it's really odd how a lot of meat substitutes have dairy ingredients - several of the Boca and Morningstar ones do.

    1. I have never done that before baking tofu, I totally agree with you I find it odd since some people are vegans :)

  4. Very yum! I think I'll try it! Tofu is something I can eat when only flavoured well. I love tofu marinated in different asian sauces that you get the the supermarket :)

    1. I agree it needs some good flavours, probably why I like smothering it in tomato ketchup when I have it this way :)
