I love a hearty and filling breakfast! Don’t you? Especially, on the weekend when one has time to prep the ingredients and cook up a storm until your heart is content. It is said “variety is the spice of life” and the the versatility of this dish will never leave you bored. Well, I can assure you this isn’t a typical tofu scramble. This one is super easy, full of flavor, very good and filling too. It can be paired with anything…how about a potato hash, vegan apple sage sausage links (as shown in the photos), or even fruit. Once you make and taste this dish, I promise you…this will pretty much become a mainstay in the kitchen. I love it and I think you will too!
Let’s get cooking, shall we? It’s time to put on that pot of coffee, boil the tea kettle or blitz a healthy juice in the blender.
Here is a tip, kala namak or black salt powder makes the tofu have that taste of eggs but without the unnecessary harm to our fine feathered friends. It can be found at most asian stores or online. I highly recommend this be added to the spice collection. If you don’t have it, that’s okay too. Also, we are going for quick and simple here and a jar of your favorite salsa verde works like a charm. However, if you are feeling adventurous, feel free to make your verde sauce from scratch.
