My First Dish Using Tofu!


Yes, this is the first dish I have ever made with tofu! It’s called Tofu Scramble and like the previous recipe I found it on the internet. Also like the previous recipe I changed it. You can add whatever veggies you want to this or whatever spices. Personally I like my food spicy, but you don’t have to go down that road if you don’t want to. I doubled this recipe by the way, so what you see in the photo accounts for that.

3 tsp canola oil divided

1 14 ounce package of firm tofu packed in water, rinsed and crumbled

1 1/2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp cumin

dash of garlic powder

dash of smoked paprika

dash of chipoltle Tabasco sauce

dash of pepper

1/2 tsp salt

1 small zucchini chopped

3/4 cup of frozen corn, thawed

4 green onions (you can use scallions if you have them)

1/2 cup of shredded monterrey jack cheese

salsa

cilantro

Heat 1 1/2 tsp of oil in skillet over medium heat. Add the tofu, chili powder, cumin, 1/4 tsp of salt, and all of the spices to taste. Cook for about 10 minutes or so until cooked through. Transfer to a bowl.

Add remaining 1 1/2 tsp oil to pan. Add zucchini, corn, green onions and remaining 1/4 tsp salt. Cook until veggies are tender. Return tofu to pan and cook until heated through. Remove from heat and add cheese. Top with the salsa and cilantro.

Yummy!

  1. You should give my Tofu French Toast a try. I have a recipe for it on my blog. I normally don’t have normal French Toast but once a year. I’ve had the tofu version three times in the past 3 months. It is really yummy. If you don’t like using eggs, you can alter the recipe and use a vegetarian dairy substitute or cream.
