Tofu and Vegetable Scramble

 This Tofu and Vegetable Scramble is my favourite recipe for Tofu Scramble and it is the perfect alternative for Vegan’s so we can still get all the protein without eating all the eggs! It is simple, easy, delicious and completely customisable.

As a big egg-hater I needed to come up with something that allowed me to enjoy scrambled eggs on toast as I remember eating as a child…but to be honest even then I don’t think I was a fan and was probably just trying to please my family by eating something more normal (living on pizza isn’t acceptable really). I’ve got this love-hate relationship with eggs that I wish didn’t exist, I like them hard boiled and that is all (odd huh) and I hate using them in baking as I cannot stand the overpowering taste and odd texture… just eww!

Any Vegan would know that Tofu makes an excellent alternative for many egg dishes such as Frittata, Omelette and this Scramble! Tofu comes in different forms of white blocks with varying textures – soft, silken, firm, extra firm etc. but for this recipe firm or extra firm works best as it retains its shape whereas soft or silken tofu is far more delicate and perfect for smoothies and deserts or blended to make Frittata, Omelette or Macaroni Sauce – YUM!

This recipe requires, draining, pressing and crumbling your tofu and letting it marinate to soak up the flavours, and I would suggest letting it marinate for a minimum of two hours but overnight is best. Then just fry in a pan for 10 minutes and your tofu is ready to serve with your stir-fried vegetables.

This is my favourite go-to recipe when I fancy Tofu Scramble as I love the whole combination of flavours along with the stir-fried vegetables but there are many other marinades that work perfectly well too such as Curry style or Mexican fajita style…mmmm fajitas!

You can serve this with whatever takes your fancy really, I like it on toast, over baked potato or served with a side grain such as Bulgar Wheat.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you give it a go, leave a comment and let me know or post a picture in  @untaintedtastesinstagram or  facebook and use #untaintedtastes and tag me @untaintedtastes as I’d love to see them 🙂 xo
