Tofu Scramble on Toast with Avocado


This recipe is a result of having soft tofu and not knowing what to do with it. I normally cook with firm, so when my mom came back from the grocery store with soft, I had to make the most of it!

Ingredients:
  • 8-10 ounces soft tofu (you can use firm, but soft tends to "scramble" better
  • handful spinach
  • handful broccoli
  • handful, yellow squash
  • small tomato
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 pieces of bread, toasted
  • half an avocado
  • olive oil


Directions
  1. Prepare tofu by draining it of any excess water. Break into small pieces. They don't have to be even. 
  2. Chop broccoli, squash, and tomato.
  3. Combine cumin, thyme, salt, and water in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. Slice avocado, set aside.
  5. Preheat a pan over high heat. Add a little oil to the pan once heated.
  6. Place tofu in pan and begin "scrambling:" Stir the tofu with a wooden spoon or spatula, making sure it doesn't stick to the pan.
  7. Once the tofu is golden brown, add broccoli, squash and tomato.
  8. Stir until broccoli is bright green, but not brown.
  9. Add spinach and mix well. It will drastically decrease in size.
  10. Pour water, cumin, thyme mixture over the tofu and vegetables.
  11. Pour the nutritional yeast evenly over tofu and vegetables. Stir until coated.
  12. Toast the bread.
  13. Once the bread has toasted and the tofu mixture is sufficiently coated with spices and nutritional yeast, prepare your plate by putting the tofu mixture onto one slice of bread. Add sliced avocado. 
  14. Can be eaten as a sandwich or with a fork.
  15. Bon app├ętit! 


I'm back!

So I haven't told any of you guys this, but when I first started this blog I was in New Zealand. I had a lot of free time, so I decided to use up my time by making delicious food! 

I took a sort of hiatus from blogging when I started my journey home, to Baltimore, Maryland. The hiatus wasn't supposed to be this long. But almost as soon as I got back, there was a mishap wherein someone (not myself!) spilled water on my computer, which has made blogging a little difficult. I still don't have my computer back, but my sister has so graciously let me borrow hers so that I can continue bringing delicious recipes to the masses (I think I have what, one follower? Hi follower!). 

All this to say, I'm back! More recipes to come! Now that I'm home, you'll see more American brands like Daiya cheese and Earth Balance vegan margarine. Stay tuned for delicious noms!

Here's a picture of me and my baby the day I got back. I missed this little guy!
