Introduction

I know there's a bunch of scrambled tofu recipes up already, but they're all wrong. It's Isa's recipe or the one from Cathe Olson's book. All others are just not right.

Ingredients

    From: http://www.theppk.com/recipes/dbrecipes/index.php?RecipeID=110

    Ingredients
    1 lb. extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 medium chopped white onion (about a cup)
    2 cups cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
    2-3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/4 cup nutritional yeast
    juice of 1/2 a lime
    1 carrot (this is optional, I grate it in at the end, mostly for color)

    spice blend:
    2 teaspoons cumin
    1 teaspoon thyme, crushed with your fingers
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1/2 teaspoon tumeric
    1 teaspoon salt

Directions


Directions
Heat oil in skillet over medium-high. Saute onions 3 minutes, until softened. Add mushrooms, saute 5 minutes more. Add garlic, saute 2 minutes more. Add spice blend and mix it up for 15 seconds or so. Add 1/4 cup water and deglaze the pan, scrapingthe bottom to get all the garlic and spices.

Crumble in tofu and mix well. Don't crush the tofu, just kind of lift it and mix it around. You want it to remain chunky. Let cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding splashes of water if necesary to keep it from sticking too much. Lower the heat a bit if you find that it is sticking. Add lime juice. Add nutritional yeast and mix it up. If it seems too dry add splashes of water. The moistness really depends on how much water the tofu was retaining before you added it.

Grate the carrot into it and fold. Serve with guacamole and salsa and potatoes and toast and tempeh bacon. Then rub your tummy till well into the afternoon.

    AWESOME! I used Portabella instead. Next time I'll cut the cumin by 1/2, it was a little too strong for me. Loved it! - 12/29/11
