I first encountered a variation of this in a funky restaurant in Cotati California. This is your basic healthy hippie meal with what chef Uriah, owner of the Columbian Cafe in Astoria Oregon, lovingly (or laughingly) refers to as tasteful, odorless food unit or as we have come to know it ‘TOFU’.
This is a vegan, gluten-free meal is loaded with nutrition, low in fat but here is the clincher…it tastes really GOOD!
PRINT Tofu Scramble from MS Word
Yield: 3-4 servings
1 container firm tofu
1 medium zucchini
½ medium bell pepper
5 Crimini (Italian brown) mushrooms
½ large yellow onion
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 teaspoons granulated garlic
½ teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
Drain tofu and pat dry with a paper towel. Dice into half-inch cubes, coat with the cornstarch, set aside. Dice onion and red pepper, slice mushrooms, quarter zucchini lengthwise then slice thin. Sauté veggies in olive oil, add tofu and seasonings stirring frequently for about 2-3 minutes.
