This is a wonderful vegetarian dish with a great flavor. The cheese can be omitted, and other vegetables such as green peppers or mushrooms can be added. It's great served with hot bran muffins.

Turned out very good, although I made changes. Used mushrooms, red & green bell peppers and chopped onion, and didn't have turmeric so I used mustard powder (figured it might add a bit of yellow to make it look more like eggs), onion and garlic powders and a pinch of curry powder. Topped with fresh herbs and wrapped in a tortilla. Next time I think I will season and start cooking the tofu first, then add veggies because it took about 10 minutes to cook off the liquid and by then the peppers were cooked too much for my taste. So next time I'll saute the tofu for 5 minutes or so before adding the veggies.


I made some modifications to this recipe. First, I didn't put any cheese. I sauteed the tofu with diced green pepper and sliced mushrooms, and added the tomato in last. I also crumbled the tofu into the pan instead of "mashing" it, so it looked like scrambled eggs. It was a tad soupy. The vegans loved it, and I thought it was pretty good too.


This recipe is very similar to mine. There are many variations to scrambled tofu. Make sure you use firm or extra firm water packed tofu and not silken. Also, only use spoonful of chopped tomatoes or salsa. This dish tastes great with toast and salsa.
