Scrambled Tofu

scrambled tofu

Do you ever wonder what to eat for breakfast? Especially on the weekend mornings when you want something special? Well, scrambled tofu is for you! Believe it or not I had never made it before this past weekend. I have eaten it but not tried making it myself. This recipe is how Nana Kwaku makes it.

I also tried making tempeh bacon. That recipe needs a bit of work. Is was ok but I won't share it until I work on it a bit more.

You can use either soft or firm tofu. I suggest you press your tofu before you crumble it. To press it, lay a few sheets of paper towel on a shallow dish. Place tofu on top. Place an inverted plate on top and the put something heavy on top of that. This will help some of the excess liquid come out of the tofu. Otherwise your scramble may end up watery.
