Scrambled Tofu recipe

 3 tablespoons vegan butter or olive oil
 ½ teaspoon turmeric
 2 tablespoons minced fresh onion or 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
 12 ounces firm tofu, drained and coarsely crumbled
 Salt and black pepper to taste
 ¼ cup sliced fresh mushrooms
 ¼ cup diced red or green bell peppers
 ¼ cup sliced vegan sausage or hot dog
 2 tablespoons vegan cream cheese
 ¼ cup shredded vegan cheddar cheese
 For a gluten-free option, use a soy sausage or hot dog that is gluten-free with no vital wheat gluten.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in turmeric. Add onion and your choice of mushrooms, bell peppers, and/or vegan sausage or hot dog. Sauté 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Add tofu and stir gently until well-mixed and heated throughout. Add vegan cream cheese and/or cheddar cheese if desired. Cook and stir until cheese is melted. Season with salt and black pepper.

Note: You can experiment with a variety of items such as finely chopped broccoli, shredded zucchini, seasoned beans, etc. The addition of vegan cream cheese gives the tofu a creamy texture.
