    Bring On Your Best Tofu Scramble Recipe!

    I love tofu scrambles! They're low in fat, high in protein and a great way to add a ton of veggies to my diet. My recipes are always changing and evolving depending on my mood that day. Besides the wide variety of veggies that go into my scrambles, some of my other favorite, add-in ingredients are:

    Nutritional Yeast for a cheezy flavor
    ground flax seeds, for extra omega 3s
    turmeric, just a little for color and nutrition
    smoked paprika, it's just good
    garlic powder, for earthiness
    cumin, again, earthiness
    black salt, for an eggy flavor

    And the best ingredient that really changes the game is almond cream cheese such as kite hill, (really good stuff,) or homemade, (still good, but way cheaper.) The cream cheese makes the scramble soooooo creamy...very much like perfect scrambled eggs. In fact, I served my tofu scramble to my SIL, who swears that he doesn't like tofu, and afterwards he thanked me for the, "delicious, scrambled eggs." I didn't have the heart to tell him that it was tofu.

    What do you put in your scrambles?

    I like marinating the tofu in Teriyaki sauce for a day then slicing it and breading it with a mixture of flour, nutritional yeast, and Italian spices--then pan frying it in a little olive oil. Even my super picky daughter likes it.

    We do a fried tofu cubes scramble for dinner a lot but we use extra firm, I have a feeling what you’re making is with the softer stuff. Toby’s tofu seasoning has a lot of the ingredients you listed and we use that a lot (a local version of it from nearly normals). We do a lot of baby spinach, just at the end, in our egg like scrambles, with fresh diced tomatoes, yum!

    I don't like eggs no matter how you cook them. But do love tofu! Freeze firm or extra firm tofu in the package, thaw, drain well, and shred tofu. It will resemble crab meat. Make crab cakes from your favorite recipe. No one in my family knew the difference.

    Ya know...I think that it's all how it's prepared and seasoned. Tofu, by itself, is very bland and almost tasteless. But, if you add lots of spices and goodies to it, it takes on a whole, new character. It's cheap, it's healthy and it's readily available in the stores. Most of it is Non-GMO, or Organic too.

    That sounds good! When I freeze tofu it comes out spongy. It's still good...great for soaking up sauces and spices.

    Sounds great, I do a similar recipe to yours, will try the flax seed and touch of garlic. Thanks so much.

    I agree that when people say they don't like tofu, they haven't had good tofu.
