Italian-Style Scrambled Tofu

As you can tell, I dig italian food. I love italian herbs and seasonings; it’s the seasoning I go to whenever I don’t know how to spice what I’m cooking and I’m not feeling creative. I really just like how aromatic the italian herbs are and it makes me feel like I am eating something semi-fancy. So, this little scramble highlights what I love about italian food and it pretty simple to make. This dish serves as a good weekend brunch entree or as a quick dinner. Plus it’s pretty healthy what with all the veggies you can add (you can add more than I’ve suggested in this recipe even). I served it with a kale salad that I made from all dat kale I bought at the Tempe Farmer’s market. ^_^

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    1. Drain your tofu using either the quick or long version or draining that I gave in another post. Slice and dice all your veggies, and the Tofurky sausage if using. When cutting your mini peppers, try to get as many of the seeds out as you can to avoid any unnecessary tooth-breaking when you're eating.
    2. In a skillet, saute the onions in the oil on high until they begin to turn translucent. Add in the garlic and stir around with a spatula. Make sure to not let the garlic burn or it will lose it's flavor. Crumble in the tofu and other vegetables to the skillet.
    3. Add in the peppers, tomato, and Tofurky sausage if using. Continue stirring the mix for about 5 minutes, adding in a couple tablespoons of water if the mix starts to dry and/or stick to the pan.
    4. Add in the spices and mix well. Turn the heat down to medium-low. Stirring occasionally, leave it on the heat for about 5-7 more minutes. This will give the tofu a little more time to absorb the flavor.
    5. Turn off the heat. When cooled, serve in a tortilla wrap or with a salad. Here are some other ideas of what you can add: Vegan mozzerella cheeze, vegan parmesean. mushrooms, or spaghetti sauce.
