Breakfast is my favorite time of day, especially when I have the morning off and I can make something special. This tofu scramble is a great alternative to eggs, it packs a good amount of protein and has fewer calories. Tofu is also cholesterol free. This is a nice healthy dairy-free breakfast option that’s great for anyone looking for something healthy, and not to mention delicious.
Note: Tofu is usually packaged in water. You will need to drain all the water out once opened, and need to press all the water out. This will give it a better texture, and will not fall apart when cooked. To do this, use a cutting board and wrap the tofu in a clean towel, or you can also use a few paper towels. Next place a few heavy books on top of the tofu carefully and the weight will press the water out. This usually takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Once the water is all out, the tofu will feel more compact and sponge like.
