This is Terri's tofu scramble recipe.  It's vegan, low-carb, and delicious. Don't leave out the nutritional yeast! 


  • l lb. firm tofu
  • 2 Tbs nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp low sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 stalk broccoli, chopped very well
  • ½ bell pepper diced
  • ½ onion diced
  • 2 slices Fakin’ Bacon (tempeh bacon substitute), chopped small
  • 1 Tbs canola oil (or other mild-flavored oil)


Drain the tofu. Cut it into pieces and put it into a small mixing bowl. Add the nutritional yeast, turmeric, tamari/soy sauce, cayenne and pepper. With a fork, mash it all up until there are no big chunks. You can use it right away, but for the best flavor, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

In a frying pan, heat the canola oil and add the Fakin’ Bacon. Sauté until the pieces are brown and crispy.

Add the vegetables and stir-fry until they are tender. Add the tofu mixture and stir-fry until the tofu is heated through. Serves four.
