Retaliation and Scrambled Tofu Recipe


Tuesday I posted this. Here is the picture again....just to remind you

Last night I went to the store and bought THIS!

Ahhhh....much better! What's that they say about payback?

Scrambled Tofu
1 serving

I got the idea from the recipe book "Vegan with a Vengeance".

Add 1 tsp Olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. When it's hot add 1/4 of a yellow onion (diced), 1/2 a green pepper (diced) and 1 clove of garlic (minced) Saute for about 5 -10 minutes or until onions and peppers are tender.
Add 1/2 ground cumin and 1/8 tsp turmeric to the onions and mix in. Splash a bit of water into the pan to get all the good bits up off the bottom of the pan.
Crumble 1/4 lb of extra firm drained tofu into the pan and stir around for about 5-10 minutes. If the tofu starts to get a little too crumbly add some extra water to the pan.
Serve with salsa.

The texture was great and the turmeric gave the tofu a good yellow eggy color. I think next time I will mix the salsa right in. It was very filling too. I didn't start to feel hungry until lunch time! Remember, tofu doesn't taste bad, it just doesn't taste like anything! Feel free to use your own spices and vegetables to make this dish truly yours! (Also, this was my first attempt cooking with tofu, so if I can do it first try, so can you!)

And here is the fruit salad that I ate along with my breakfast. I love that eating something this sweet, juicy, and beautiful isn't cheating one little bit!
