Scrambled Tofu with grilled Truss Tomatoes, Field Mushrooms and Spinach

Scrambled tofu 2

This has got to be my favourite brekkie ever, so of course I had to have it for Mothers Day brunch – it’s simple enough for the dads (with help from the kids) to fire up on the BBQ! When I was studying Jivamukti teacher training in Costa Rica I would eat scrambled tofu at every breakfast. Back here in the real world of a busy family it’s now a once in a while weekend treat…although I’m not sure why as it’s pretty simple to make…

IngredientsScrambled tofu spices

1 Tbsp curry powder

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp ground cumin

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes

1/4 tsp smoked paprika

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional if you like heat like me)

1/2 tsp sea salt

3 Tbsp nuttelex or other vegan margarine

400g block firm tofu

2 large truss/vine-ripened tomoatoes, halved

5 field mushrooms, halved

about 100g of baby spinach (I included rocket) to serve

MethodScrambled tofu spice paste

Place all of the spices in a small bowl and mix well. Add 1/4 cup of water, stir well until combined to a paste then set aside.

Chop the tofu roughly until it has a crumbled texture. Melt the nuttelex in a large frying pan over medium heat the add the tofu and saute for about 1 minute. Add the spice paste, stirring to coat all of the tofu pieces evenly. Cook for another 2 minutes, adding a little more water if the mixture looks too dry.

Carefully remove the tomato and mushrooms from the pan with BBQ tongs and set onto serving plates with a handful of the spinach. Divide the tofu scramble between the plates and serve hot.
