One of my favorite foods that I learned to make myself in my early twenties was scrambled eggs. I loved to eat them with all kinds of ingredients including vegetables. As a vegan now, I had to create a version of the former scrambled eggs that I so loved, so I have fashioned an easy tofu scramble that is healthier, delicious and cruelty-free! Here is my recipe for tofu scramble with a Spanish flare.
1 lb. extra firm tofu
1 medium orange pepper
1 medium red pepper
1 small onion
6-8 large black olives, sliced
2 Tbs. spaghetti sauce (left-over sauce is great for this recipe)
1 Tbs. ketchup
1 Tbs. tamari
1 Tbs. nutritional yeast (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare ingredients that need to be chopped or sliced.
Remove tofu from package and cut into bite-sized pieces. Place into a large bowl. Add ketchup, tamari, spaghetti and nutritional yeast and smash until tofu looks like brains. Set aside.
In a large skillet, in a small amount of water, cook onions and peppers for about 10 min or until done. Add tofu mix and sliced olives. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring and mixing everything together. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with hash browns or vegan pancakes.
