Tofu Scramble Recipe Test Kitchen!

April 1, 2013 – 10:29 am


Yesterday I spent my morning doing a Tofu Scramble recipe test kitchen. I tested a few flavors and textures. I hope my results will inspire you to try making Tofu Scramble for yourself.

Tofu Scramble: a classic. When embarking on a veg culinary journey, there are a few recipes that I like to call "the classics". Among them: soy smoothies, tempeh-bacon, vegan Mac & Cheese, Cashew Cheese, Pasta with Pesto, vegan choco-chip cookies - just to name a few. And when it comes to breakfast, there is nothing more veg-classic than a hearty, savory Tofu Scramble. Lets get in the test kitchen!..

First Bite. I don't remember the first time I ordered tofu scramble for breakfast. But in college, my breakfast-of-choice was always Amy's Tofu Scramble breakfast pocket. I loved that thing! But nowadays, I've moved on from relying on pre-made foods - especially dishes that with a little practice, I can easily make for myself.

My Other Tofu-Scramble Recipes:
* Saffron Scented Tofu Scramble
* Good Morning Tofu Scramble Pasta

Tofu for Egg Lovers. I'm pretty convinced that tofu scramble could save the world. Yes, cupcakes were doing a pretty good job, but to take a dish as mainstream and territorial as "scrambled eggs" and give it a worthy vegan makeover - well that's quite magical. As a reformed egg-lover, I find tofu scramble to be a satisfying substitute.

I think of my Ovo-Lacto-Vegetarian days as "the dark years" of my diet. I'd eat eggs and a little voice in the back of my head would scream, "just think about what you are eating right now!"

..But ignorance is bliss, right? Eventually I kicked my egg habit - it took me a few years though. Frozen yogurt and egg whites were my last non-vegan addictions. And once I fully removed myself from dairy and egg products, I felt a vibrancy and inner calm that I had never felt before - even though I had tried almost every 'get healthy' diet out there. That little voice in the back of my head finally shut-up.
Lightbulb: Eggs? Don't need them! And mastering a basic recipe like tofu scramble is all part of that realization and awakening.

Egg-Replacer Cooking Tip: Good vegan egg replacers include, fruit purees like applesauce, mashed banana, mashed avocado, silken tofu, baking powder, vital wheat gluten, soy yogurt, nut meals (like almond meal), canned pumpkin or squash - mashed yams or potatoes (starch), agar agar mixture, and products like Ener-G egg replacer. (Different replacements work best in different types of recipes. If you have questions - I'm here!)
