OMG it's Tofu Queso (95 Calories 6 Carb) MUST TRY
Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

I modified this from the Ellen Show (10-05-10). Made it for the Superbowl and put it out with the "other" queso. It ran out first. It's a great faux cheese for nachos. The uses are endless. You can add anything to it... Don't forget to add your chips to your tracker. ;-)

Traditional mediterranean stir fry breakfast. Great for a weekend morning alternative to "sausage & eggs". It's not really an omelette because the eggs are optional & even if you do put them on, they are just "drizzled" over the top, not stirred in.

Serve it with chopped cucumbers, feta cheese & black olives. Dip into it with whole wheat pita bread.
Serve with tea (traditional mediterranean tea is similar to Orange Pekoe, served black, with sugar or sweetener, but no milk).

As a side, you can also take whole hot banana peppers or the long green chili peppers & roast them directly on the burner (med heat, no pan necessary - just watch them carefully). They will turn a bit black on the outside. Flip them over to cook evenly.

Variations on the melamen:
-Use with Hot Banana Peppers for a yummy "hot" variety
-Add mushrooms if you like them (I don't which is why I don't add them).
-Eliminate the egg, it is not a necessary ingredient (This makes it vegan friendly.)
-If you like eggs, then add 2 egg-whites instead of 1 whole egg for lower cholesterol version.
-This is SO YUMMY with butter (add 1-2 tbsp at the same time as the tomatoes), if you can afford the fat & cholesterol.
