Author: Vegan Lass

Ingredients

1 package (300g) of firm tofu, drained and pressed
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 spring onion, finely chopped
1/2 yellow bell pepper, diced
3 mushrooms, diced

6 sundried tomatoes, diced
1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 tablespoon of dried mixed herbs
A handful of fresh basil leaves
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and pepper

Method

A good tofu scramble is one of those things: hard to master but worth persevering with. This recipe makes a fragrant, herby, protein-rich scramble that’s great with toast and something green.

  1. Start off by adding the garlic, onion, mushroom and pepper to the pan with the oil. Add a pinch of salt and fry over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Keeping the pan on the heat, add the tofu to the mixture while crumbling it into rough chunks. Sprinkle over the turmeric, dried herbs and a little more salt before mixing the whole lot thoroughly. Break down the tofu to your desired texture using a spatula or fork.
  3. Mix in the sundried tomatoes, then fry the mixture for a further 6-7 minutes.
  4. Season to taste. Mix in the fresh basil at the last minute.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
