Tofu is a versatile ingredient with many health benefits. It is a good source of protein. Tofu has a neutral taste and with its range of consistency it can be used in a number of ways in different recipes.
In the below recipe I have used extra firm tofu combined with some vegetables to create a tasty, healthy stir fried tofu-vegetable scramble.
PREP TIME: 5 Mins
COOKING TIME: 5 Mins
Tofu (Extra Firm) – 300 grams
Pepper – 1 teaspoon coarsely crushed
Cumin – 1/2 teaspoon coarsely crushed
Onion – 1 small finely sliced
Carrot – 1 julienned
Yellow Bell Pepper – 50 grams sliced
Red bell pepper – 50 grams sliced
Salt – to taste
Oil – 1 teaspoon
STEP 1: Rinse the tofu well, squeeze out excess water and crumble the tofu.
STEP 2: Heat oil in a pan and add the vegetables one after the other, starting with onion and then the rest of the vegetables.
STEP 3: Cook for 2 minutes. Make a well in the pan by pushing the stir fried vegetables to the sides.
STEP 4: Add the tofu and ½ teaspoon of oil in the centre of the pan. Cook for 2 minutes.
STEP 5: Now mix the vegetables and tofu. Add salt, crushed pepper and crushed cumin. Mix well and turn off the heat.
TIP: Tofu scramble can be served for breakfast or as an evening snack.
