This is a wonderful vegetarian dish with a great flavor. The cheese can be omitted, and other vegetables such as green peppers or mushrooms can be added. It's great served with hot bran muffins.

I didn't like this. I thought the tomatoes were sour next to the tofu. It has a pretty strange taste and I didn't think the turmeric helped. Read More

Turned out very good although I made changes. Used mushrooms red & green bell peppers and chopped onion and didn't have turmeric so I used mustard powder (figured it might add a bit of yellow to make it look more like eggs) onion and garlic powders and a pinch of curry powder. Topped with fresh herbs and wrapped in a tortilla. Next time I think I will season and start cooking the tofu first then add veggies because it took about 10 minutes to cook off the liquid and by then the peppers were cooked too much for my taste. So next time I'll saute the tofu for 5 minutes or so before adding the veggies. Read More

This recipe is very similar to mine. There are many variations to scrambled tofu. Make sure you use firm or extra firm water packed tofu and not silken. Also only use spoonful of chopped tomatoes or salsa. This dish tastes great with toast and salsa. Read More

I made some modifications to this recipe. First I didn't put any cheese. I sauteed the tofu with diced green pepper and sliced mushrooms and added the tomato in last. I also crumbled the tofu into the pan instead of "mashing" it so it looked like scrambled eggs. It was a tad soupy. The vegans loved it and I thought it was pretty good too. Read More

I didn't have any green onions so I just subbed other dried spices (basil oregano thyme and red pepper flakes) and it turned out quite yummy. Definitely squeeze out the water from the tofu before you cook it (I found using non-silken tofu worked better). The cheese added nice flavor at the end. This is good and makes a quick and easy snack or meal. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I added cumin coriander curry and cayenne to this which spiced it up nicely. I also drained the tomatos and next time I too would use firm rather than silken tofu because it was a bit soupy. But this is a good easy recipe! Read More

Pretty good. I used half the tomatoe juice but it was still very liquidy. Next time i will drain the tomatoes completely. Read More

Made this for dinner tonight and it was great! I didn't have green onions but used green peppers a little spinach and portobello mushrooms. I also didn't add tomatoes because I was afraid it would be too soupy. Also next time I will cook the tofu and the sauteed veggies in a separate pan. Once you add the tofu (and the water that inevitably comes with it) the crispy green peppers got really soft. Overall I really liked this recipe and will experiment with it again! Read More

I give this 4 stars in concept. I took some mods from other posters and the finished product was absolutely FANTASTIC! I've been cooking with tofu for a few years. My son is a football player and Tofu is an excellent source of protein. The trick with cooking with Tofu is to make sure you press it. Take a kitchen towel and fold it around the tofu. I used firm tofu for this recipe. Press as much of the water out by using you hands. Change towel and press again then put a heavy pot on top of it for about 5 minutes. Lay the pressed tofu on paper towels to "air dry" for about 15 minutes. Then it's ready to use. I used 1/2 of a large red bell pepper 1/2 scallion 4 cloves of garlic 1/2 c. Shitake Mushrooms 1/2 c. of Baby Bellas a can of Original Style Rotell (drained) and used spiced Himalayan Salt Hot Madras Curry Powder and the Turmeric. I chopped all veggies into little diced pieces and sauteed them in garlic and olive oil for about 3 minutes and then added the crumbled tofu. Once the tofu was cooked well I added the drained rotell and spices. Cooked until heated through.... This was a BIG hit and will become a staple brunch/snack in our home. I will have to double or maybe triple the recipe next time because everyone wanted seconds but there was only enough for three servings. Read More
