Never Say Never - Tofu Scramble

I've been "dabbling" with plant-based food for a couple of years or so but it has only been in the last year that I finally decided I was going to try tofu.  I have used it in a recipe that creates a ricotta-like cheese in a pasta dish and I have baked it to use in stir-fry.  My family loves both recipes (I am not so crazy about the baked yet but I'll keep trying).  So, with more determination, I recently (in the last few months) decided to go for the tofu scramble - win!!!

We love it, oh yes we do!  I would have NEVER thought I would say that about tofu, but it's true.  Combined with the right ingredients it has a delicious taste; and while it looks like scrambled eggs and has some what of a eggy taste (thanks to the black salt), it isn't exactly like scrambled eggs.  Might I say it is a tad bit better?  I think so!

Here's how I did it step by step - this is the Happy Herbivore recipe I used.

Spinach and onions aren't in the original recipe but they are SO good added to the scramble.  I chopped them first so they would be ready to go.

I added the tofu and all the ingredients to my poor excuse for a skillet, turned on the heat and started mashing the tofu and mixing the ingredients.  Once it is heated through, it is basically through.

But first I had to add my spinach and onions and let it cook for a few minutes.

Oh my, doesn't this look good?  I wrapped my scramble in a warm tortilla and topped it with a little Siracha sauce.  I have some more tofu.  Maybe I should make one for dinner as well...


  1. Tofu scrambles rock! Press your tofu to get the water out...

  2. We went through a tofu scramble phase about 15 years ago when I decided to cut back on eggs, and then I got sick of it as I generally do not like or enjoy tofu. Plus pregnancy made me crave eggs like crazy. But I feel like the only vegetarian who can't stand it. LOL But your post makes me inspired to give it another shot and see if my kiddo likes it.

  3. LOL. I balked at the idea of Tofu for awhile and now I love it. The 'ricotta' cheese is an amazing thing. I've put it in quiche and have also learned to marinate it and make a 'bacon' type thing that the men in our family actually like.
    Tofu... the other white meat.. LOL.

  4. That looks delicious! I love tofu scramble, especially wrapped as you did and topped with Sriracha. Yum!

  5. When i was working part time, I used to buy Amy's Tofu Scramble from the freezer department. Every time I put it in the microwave I would think "I could soo make this".. and I still haven't tried. LOL.
    You have inspired me. Will have to try it tomorrow for lunch .. maybe. ROFL!
