Scrambled tofu. I'm pretty much addicted. I make it all the time. I love to have a big brunch on Sunday mornings with scrambled tofu, home fries, and toast. Ahhh the best ever. I use a variation of Isa's recipe. It's the quickest, easiest thing ever. I like to go to Trader Joe's for my tofu because it's the firmest I've ever tried. Also, I usually save an empty spice container and fill it with several batches of the spice blend. Then I just shake however much I need onto the tofu, so I can make as much or as little as I need.
1 lb. extra firm tofu, drained and cubed
1 medium onion, diced
2-3 cloves of garlic, pressed or minced
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon tumeric
1 teaspoon salt
Heat a little oil in a skillet and toss in the onion, garlic, and tofu. Cook until the tofu starts to get a little browned. Add the spices and cook a little more. If it's too dry, add a few splashes of water. Cook for another minute or so and you're done! If you want to get a little fancy, add some veggies. My favorite is spinach and tomatoes.
