Before yesterday morning, I’d last made tofu scramble quite a few years ago. At that time, I remember it being decidedly… meh… okay but not really something I was in a hurry to make again.
Then I saw a recipe for Golden tofu scram over at Gapers Block. Mmmm, now that looked like one delicious tofu scramble.
So I made it, with just a few additions for extra seasoning.
And it was awesome. A delicious savoury taste with crunchy bits from the seeds, and scrunchy bits from the golden-fried tofu. YUMM! I wouldn’t say it tasted like scrambled eggs (which I never much liked anyway), but I would say that it tasted better than scrambled eggs.
It’s quick to make, and perfect for a weekend breakfast. We ate it alongside Creamy mushrooms on toast.
Don’t forget to check out the original recipe at Gapers Block… they have a helpful photo tutorial, which I was far too lazy to include in my post.
|1 tablespoon||tahini||1 tablespoon|
|1 tablespoon||sesame seeds||1 tablespoon|
|1 tablespoon||sunflower seeds||1 tablespoon|
|1 tablespoon||lemon juice||1 tablespoon|
|1-1/2 teaspoons||soy sauce||1-1/2 teaspoons|
|1 tablespoon||nutritional yeast||1 tablespoon|
|to taste||salt, freshly ground pepper & onion granules||to taste|
|groundnut (peanut) oil for frying|
1. In a medium-sized bowl, make the sauce by whisking together the tahini, sesame & sunflower seeds, lemon juice and soy sauce.
2. Break off a big chunk of tofu and crumble it with your hands into the bowl of sauce. The goal is to have small bits that will become thoroughly coated with the delicious sauce. When all the tofu is crumbled into the bowl, mix it thoroughly.
3. Next add the nutritional yeast, and seasonings to taste. I used salt, pepper and onion granules, but you could use anything your little heart desires. You can also add a pinch of turmeric to impart an eggy goldenness, but this is optional.
4. Heat a heavy skillet (I use cast iron) on medium heat and add a bit of groundnut (peanut) oil. Spread the tofu into a thin layer and fry until it is golden on one side. Then flip it over in sections and brown the other side.
Makes 2 servings.
