Tofu Scramble

Last night my vegan friend Jessica spent the night. Today is our final exam for yoga teacher training (wish us luck!). We needed a hearty breakfast to start our day, so she whipped up a delicious tofu scramble.

The first time this stuff has landed in my kitchen


Tofu Scramble (serves 2)


  • 1/2 box firm tofu
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • handful of mushrooms, sliced
  • olive oil
  • pinch of turmeric
  • dash of soy sauce
  • dash of hot sauce
  • chives
  • freshly ground pepper


Use a tablespoon of olive oil to sauté the onions and mushrooms until soft. Meanwhile, wrap the tofu in a paper towel and gently squeeze out the excess water. Add the tofu to the pan. Cook a few minutes, scrambling. Add turmeric, soy and hot sauce to the pan. Cook until hot and the mixture has a yellowish color. Add lots of freshly ground pepper. Transfer to plates and top with freshly chopped chives.

Chopped chives; I could add these to just about anything


Yesterday we packed sandwiches and quinoa salads for lunch. Today we made another version of quinoa with toasted walnuts and avocados instead (and of course more miso ginger dressing).

Happy Sunday!
