Scrambled Tofu

Scrambled Tofu brings a flavorful breakfast presentation to the table. We get a low cal, high- protein dish through the use of soybeans which is processed to make tofu. Low fat, low cholesterol, and no need for added sodium. We also get vitamins and minerals from the soybeans.

This healthy recipe also uses an ingredient called nutritional yeast, which is full of B vitamins. Nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavor and a vibrant yellow color that makes the scramble look more like eggs. As we transition to plant-based, fatless eating, we will appreciate familiar symbols of the old diet. It does not have to taste the same but it must taste good. The new food must be nutrient rich and provide some similar appearances and textures.

Serve with fruit, a bagel, a slice of Ezekiel bread, stuff in a pita pocket, or add a few tofu sticks on the side. Enjoy!
