I have a very dear friend who is a vegetarian (but not vegan). This is one of her favorites. I post this in her honor.



Scrambled Tofu
Recipe created by Rosie Daley

Don't worry, you egg eaters, you aren't deprived of flavor here. So have some variety in your breakfasts, alternating between eggs and tofu. This dish is light, well seasoned, and, like eggs, full of protein for get-up-and-go energy. Turmeric is what lends the color and mild flavor to this dish


Scrambled Tofu

16-ounce block firm tofu

3 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced thin (11/2 tablespoons)

3 tablespoons diced red bell pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3/4 cup sliced green onions, scallions, chives or 1/2 cup minced onion

2 teaspoons soy sauce

Garnish:

Fresh salsa

Corn tortillas

Drain the tofu and crumble it, using clean hands. Sauté the garlic and diced pepper with the olive oil in a medium sauté pan on medium heat, for about 2 minutes. Stir in the crumbled tofu first, then add turmeric, salt, pepper, green onions (scallions, chives or onions) and soy sauce. Cook the tofu for 3 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with salsa and warm corn tortillas.

Serves 6.
