The Perfect Tofu Scramble

Tofu is not only a healthy meat substitute but, also a great egg replacement. Tofu may be used to replace eggs in cooking and baking for reasons such as allergy and dietary preference. It is like eggs in that it is also rich in protein. It is relatively flavorless so you can easily season it to your preference. Although tofu does not fluff up like eggs, it can create that same eggy texture in dishes. With this recipe, vegans and those with egg allergy can enjoy a tasty tofu scramble for breakfast. What makes this tofu scramble even more delicious and nutritious is the nutritional yeast. So the next time you visit the grocery store, pick a block of tofu and make yourself a tofu scramble for breakfast.
