This is Terri's tofu scramble recipe. Her family often has it for Sunday breakfast. It is vegan and delicious. Don't leave out the nutritional yeast! More than one person has gotten into adding it to various foods after trying it in this dish. [Note: Because I like a little more salt than Terri, I added more soy sauce when I was heating it all together at the end. Also, I find leftovers are good sprinkled over a salad.]

Ingredients

  • 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)

Preparation

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.
