Tofu Scramble

When I was at respite care the other day, C's mom offered for me to use up the tofu and whatever else I could find to throw together for dinner. It had been more than a year since I made tofu scramble, but I'm sure glad it came to mind :)
Tofu scramble is one of my favourite dishes to make, because you can throw in whatever is in your fridge and have a meal ready in ten minutes. Plus it's freakin' delicious :D
I also sliced potatoes & yams into fries and baked them, and then steamed some veggies. It was a quick, easy, throw-together meal that we all loved! In fact, they loved it so much that they keep asking me to make it! If you want the scramble to be 'cheesy,' feel free to add in some nutritional yeast or Daiya.

From my kitchen to yours <3

1 tbs coconut oil, for the pan
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 red onion, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
8 crimini mushrooms, sliced
1 block firm tofu, pressed
soy sauce, to taste
optional: nutritional yeast or Daiya, to taste

1) In a large frying pan or wok over medium heat, warm up the coconut oil. Add in garlic, onion & yellow pepper and saute until golden.
2) Add in mushrooms and crumble in the tofu. Tofu should be in small chunks. Cook until golden, stirring occasionally, adding soy sauce to taste. If using, add in the nutritional yeast or Daiya and allow to melt.
3) Remove from heat & serve!

peace, love, food <3

This would be a great recipe for me to make for our oldest child. She eats a great deal of raw but a small protion of vegan cooked as well. I have been wanting to have her try organic tofu.
Peace & Raw Health,

I'm the same: Mostly raw foods, but I still enjoy some cooked. I do hope she enjoys it :)

much love <3
