The Best Breakfast Scramble Ever! I made it exactly as the recipe calls for the first time around, but deviated a little bit from the original recipe the second time. I didn't use nearly as much oil as it called for.
|Onion and garlic in a pan sprayed with Pam.|
|Add the mushrooms after the onions are a little cooked.|
I also used mushrooms instead of green pepper. I like green pepper, but didn't have any on hand. It worked out just fine. Just make sure that you sautee the onion and garlic for a couple of minutes first. Mushrooms are soft and will cook down to mush if you cook them for the same amount of time as the onion.
|Mmmm...looks like feta.|
The recipe has you push the veggies to the side and fry up the tofu in a little vegetable oil. I used less than a tablespoon of oil over medium/high heat. I let it fry up for a couple of minutes, and then just stirred it all together to finish frying it.
The sauce is what really makes this taste like eggs. The Nutritional Yeast has a nutty, cheesy flavor that tremendously helps the nearly tasteless tofu. I like to put enough on to coat and then heat through. These "scrambled eggs" are best rolled in a tortilla with a little salsa. I've been a breakfast burrito lover for years, and this one was good enough to fool me.
Try it and tell me what you think!
