Mushroom Spinach Tofu Scramble

IMG_8585

First of all, I know it is an ongoing huge discussion about tofu and other soy products. Is it healthy or not? I will not take that discussion right now (mostly because I’m writing this in the morning after one of my night shifts) but, I personally don’t eat tofu a lot. Every now and then yes, but not every day or even every week. Soy beans are very often genetically modified (GMO), and since we don’t know how these products are effecting our health, I would recommend to try to buy organic and verified non-GMO tofu if you can. That said, I also think that tofu and other soy products are excellent alternatives to meat.

Anyhow, everyone who knows me, knows that I love eggs. I could probably eat a dozen of eggs every week, but I figured I better find an alternative before I turn into a chicken myself. And Tofu Scramble is for sure a good alternative.

How to make a Tofu Scramble in less than 5 min:

Use Firm or Extra-firm Tofu. Crumble it with your fingers into small pieces. If you have time you can soak the tofu in some marinade but I usually just toss it into a frying pan with some mushrooms, onions, garlic and spinach (you can of course add any kind of veggies, for example bell peppers, asparagus, tomatoes etc). Add salt, pepper, turmeric and maybe some hot chili sauce/soy sauce (use the spices you like). Then add a splash of almond milk (any kind of milk would work) and if you like 1-2 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast. Stir until dry. Serve and enjoy!
