Flavor: Tofu Scramble

Posted by on November 16, 2012 at 5:38 am.

We’re not big tofu eaters in my house, but now and again I’ll prepare a dish that calls for tofu.

I love color!

What’s amazing about tofu is that it takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with. I think of it as my blank canvas that I can turn into whatever I want. A few years ago I made a chocolate truffle pie. The secret ingredient was tofu. A few of my friends didn’t believe that tofu was in there, until they saw me make one.

Last week I made tofu scramble for my daughter and myself. My daughter was pleased since she loves tofu scramble, and I was thrilled that because the meal was colorful, nutritious, and on the table in under ten minutes.

For Thanksgiving, my daughter wants Indian and Caribbean food. I suggested we go out to eat, but she wants us to make the food at home. Uhm, ok… looks like we’ll be cooking on our unturkey day. 😉

    That looks yummy! My celiac friend and I argue back and forth about tofu because she doesn’t trust beans that take on flavor of other foods. Though I think the root of the problem is she doesn’t trust soy not to be gmo. We’ve been trying to eat vegan for the last couple of weeks. She had one slip up with caramel that had dairy in it, and I had cornbread a couple of times last week that had milk & eggs. She forgot about the dairy in the caramel. I just didn’t want to waste the cornbread and needed something to tone down my Ethiopian spiced noodles. We were eating like crap for a while, and went back on a from-scratch (mostly) diet to detox. I’ve been paying big time for my slipping back into processed food. Ugh. 🙂

    @DragonLady, I do think people in westernized culture eat too much of soy products, from my research it doesn’t seem to be used in traditional Asian cultures. Here vegans, vegetarians, or people simply looking for something ‘lighter’ can find it in ‘fake meats’, desserts, and a variety of snacks.

    A few years ago, I made several invested in several good food appliances. A 12 quart Kitchen Aid food processor, Vita Mix Blender, and a Excalibur food dehydrator.

    If I want processed I use those items. Much healthier since I know what’s going into them. Definitely healthier, much more flavorful since I know exactly what’s going to into the processed foods I make. My friends/coworkers would rave about the ‘raw chips’ I’d make in my food dehydrator. Kale chips in a dehydrator are amazing. I’d process various vegetables with my food processor and make my own veggie chips. I also made an amazing bean chip.
