Simple Savory Scramble:
It is a beautiful Sabbath morning and my husband and I are doing brunch. I am jonesing for eggs. What do I make? A simple savory scramble. Tofu has a beautiful way of mimicking eggs. The great thing about this recipe is that the tofu is like a canvas. So, choose your own adventure. Pick your favorite veggies and your favorite vegan cheese and make whatever you are craving or whatever you happen to have on hand. We had a boat load of spinach on hand. (Went to a produce market recently and got like 3 gallons worth of spinach for $1.) As for the Mozzarella sticks, my mom brought me some various vegan cheeses to try. A word on vegan cheese. I used to love mozzarella sticks when I was not a vegan. Vegan mozzarella sticks just do not cut it on their own. So, what does one do with most of a package of cheese sticks? Repurpose them. They melt incredibly well. Today, I will be using it in a scramble. Another day, for an eggplant dish.
- Organic Extra Firm Tofu
- Vegan Mozzarella Cheese Stick (1 per person)
- Earth Balance
Dry out tofu (with a paper towel or put in a strainer and push out excess water). Then hand crumble into a bowl. In a hot pan put about a tbsp and a half of earth balance. Once butter is melted add spinach. Season with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, season crumbled tofu with salt and pepper. Take cheese stick and dice. Once spinach is wilted, add tofu to pan. Heat through. Add diced cheese. Stir in to melt. Incorporate all ingredients. Serve immediately. I made this recipe for one. I served it with a glass of juice (1/2 pineapple and 1/2 orange juice.)
