Does anyone else wake up in the middle of the night thinking about breakfast? No? Just me?
Well, last night I woke up at 3am and couldn't get back to sleep no matter what I tried (this has become a common occurrence now that I'm in the third trimester) and while I was laying in bed, trying to get comfortable, all I could think about was the tofu scramble I was planning to make for breakfast. When my husband finally woke up at 7:45 I forced him out of bed so that we could eat as soon as possible!
This is my basic, go-to, everyday Tofu Scramble recipe. It's quick, easy and delicious!
(Every time I post a picture of this scramble on Instagram people ask me for my recipe, and I finally measured everything out properly and wrote everything down!)
Everyday Tofu Scramble
1 block firm tofu
1Tbsp dairy free butter
1Tbsp braggs liquid aminos
1/2tsp garlic powder
1/2tsp onion powder
1/2tsp vegetable bouillon powder
1/4C nutritional yeast flakes
Black pepper (to taste)
Put a medium sized frying pan over a high heat and let the butter melt. Drain the tofu as much as you can and place the block into the pan, whole. Break up into pieces using a wooden spoon or spatula and sauté for about 5 minutes, until most of the excess liquid from the tofu has evaporated and the tofu is starting to change colour slightly.
Add all your seasonings and sauté, stirring constantly until the tofu has all changed to a beautiful golden yellow. Continue to fry, stirring regularly, for a further 5-10 minutes, until the tofu has browned slightly, is dry and hot.
Serve with toast and a nice cup of tea for a super start to the day!
