Simple Tofu Scramble
Place tofu onto a plate and place another plate on top. Set a 3- to 5-pound weight on top (a container filled with water works well). Press tofu for 20 to 30 minutes; drain and discard the accumulated liquid.Advertisement
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and onion; saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add dry vegetable soup mix and stir to coat. Crumble tofu into the skillet; break apart any large chunks with a wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until golden brown and flavors have been absorbed, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with parsley.
For a firmer-textured tofu, freeze tofu overnight or several hours before using. Defrost by pouring hot water over the tofu block and let water drain as described above.
You can add any vegetable(s) of your choice in addition to the tofu, such as chopped bell peppers to create a heartier dish.
