How to scramble tofu

Use firm tofu for scrambling as it can be crumbled to create the desired texture. Bought in a block, firm tofu can then be sliced or diced for use in a range of recipes - from salads to casseroles. Ideally, buy fresh tofu from Asian supermarkets – this must be eaten on the same day as purchased, but is better quality.Tofu has a delicate and subtle flavour and is an extremely versatile ingredient. Scrambled tofu makes a delicious breakfast option, especially for vegans. Try to dry the tofu out a little before using to prevent it from becoming too soggy.

Method

1
Heat a frying pan to high heat with a dash of oil. Add a chopped onion and sauté until soft
2
Crumble the tofu into the pan – make sure the pieces aren’t too small as it will break up further in the pan during cooking
3
Turn up the heat to allow the excess water to boil off
4
Serve immediately

Uses

You can flavour the scrambled tofu with soy sauce, turmeric, garlic, fresh herbs, salt and pepper. Serve with your choice of vegetables.
