Written by Leigh-Chantelle   
Created Friday, 01 February 2013

Foodie And Friends wrote a lil' blog on one of my how-to recipe videos for scrambled tofu:

Scrambled_Tofu__Leigh-Chantelle

Here's the text:

Here is a simple method to use tofu as an egg replacement for a “scrambled egg” breakfast.  Leigh-Chantelle from vivalavegan.net shows us how to make a delicious and healthy alternative to scrambled eggs.

She uses firm tofu and simply breaks it up with her hands.  Shes adds it to a hot wok, adds sliced cherry tomatoes and baby spinach. The mixture just needs to be warmed up.  She adds some simple spices, tamari and sweet chili sauce.

In just a couple of minutes, you have a recipe that can be part of a breakfast, brunch, or even dinner.

This is a healthy and simple recipes that fits our nutrition guidelines.
