Here’s a nice and easy recipe for a simple ‘scrambled eggs’ alternative which beats the hell out of a traditional scramble in my opinion.
1 tablespoon coconut oil
250g firm tofu
1/4 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon black salt (optional for eggy flavour)
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/2 tablespoon ‘butter’
salt & pepper
Drain the tofu of excess liquid and add it with the oil to a hot pan, breaking it up roughly with a wooden spoon but leaving it quite chunky. Add the other ingredients gradually, stirring as you go and finish with a generous pinch of salt, a good few grinds of black pepper and a splash of almond milk to make it a little creamier.
Turmeric gives this its lovely yellow colour and adds a mild kick to it, while offering amazing anti-inflammatory, cancer-preventing and brain-boosting benefits – all greatly increased by combining it with black pepper to boost its absorption. Amazing stuff.
How do you like your ‘eggs’ in the morning? I like mine on ‘buttery’ rye toast any time at all.
