Tofu Scramble

This is the basic foundation for all scrambles. You can add any other spices, veggies, etc. to make it your desired style. My favorites are Mexican and Greek.

Serves: 8-10

Ingredients

  • 1 large (really big) block of super firm tofu (Wildwood brand is great)
  • 1 cup nutritional yeast (looks like fish flakes)
  • 2 tablespoons smoked salt (this helps add more egg flavor)

Hardware

  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • Measuring tools

Method

  1. Squeeze out the extra moisture from the tofu. You can also wrap it in a dish towel and squeeze or push on it gently and the moisture will be absorbed by the towel. I recommend Wildwood because there’s not a lot of water in it, so you don’t have to go through so much squeezing and draining.
  2. Break up the big ol’ block of tofu into the mixing bowl.
  3. Sprinkle the nutritional yeast and salt over the top and mix thoroughly.
  4. Let the mixture sit as long as you’re able. Overnight is best.
  5. If you’d like your scramble plain, you can go ahead and drizzle some olive oil in a large saute pan, put it over medium heat and basically heat your scramble through. Serve and enjoy.
  6. If you want to add fun stuff, now’s the time.
  7. Saute your other ingredients and then add in the tofu mixture. Once everything is nicely heated through, serve and enjoy.
