Scrambled ‘egg’ tofu in 2 easy steps:

  1. Frying soft tofu

    Firstly, in a non-stick pan add a bit of avocado oil (medium heat) then add your soft tofu. Use a spatula to break up the tofu into small pieces and let all the water evaporate. This step usually takes about 15 mins.

  2. Spicing your scrambled tofu

    Once all the water has evaporated you can now add all your spices and mix well. Turn your heat to high and cook your scrambled tofu for about 5 mins until all pieces are firm. Ready to serve!

Tip: Tofu just like an egg is pretty bland. If you like tofu to be infused with lots of flavour, you can marinate your tofu overnight. In the morning, simply take it out of the fridge and follow the same cooking instructions as set out above.
