I took my creativity to the kitchen today and made a delicious Veggie Tofu Scramble.
I chopped up some carrots, white onion, shallot, garlic, red pepper and spinach.
Sometimes I make up my own spice mix. Today I used a pre-made mix. I mixed the dry spices (that also include a little oatmeal) with water and….
…Bragg Liquid Aminos – like soy sauce…but non-fermented and 16 “good for you” amino acids for your body.
Earlier in the day, I wrapped the extra firm tofu block in a towel and pressed it under a heavy pan for an hour to get out as much moisture as possible.
I then crumbled it and set it aside.
I began to saute the carrots, onions, garlic and shallots in a little olive oil. I also added a little fresh ground pepper.
I cooked them until they were still a little bit crunchy
I had some leftover Tofurky Italian Sausage and ended up dicing it into small pieces and setting is aside for later.
I added in some red pepper near the end of the saute. I like to keep it crunchy.
My favorite silicone spatula. It has a metal inner core to keep it bendy yet firm.
I then added the crumbled tofu, Tofurky Italian Sausage and the spice mixture. I had to add a little water to the spice mix to get it to the right consistency.
Once it was finished cooking, I took it off the heat and added the spinach.
I will eat this during the week for breakfast or lunch. It’s fantastic in a steamed corn tortilla or mixed with brown rice or quinoa or just by itself. Yum!
