Recipe Ingredients for Scrambled Tofu

1 lb. extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped white onion
2 cups mushrooms, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbs. lime juice
1/2 carrot (this is optional, I grate it in at the end, mostly for color)

spice blend:
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon thyme, crushed with your fingers
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Scrambled Tofu

  1. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high.

  2. Sautee onions 3 minutes, until softened.

  3. Add mushrooms, sautee 5 minutes more.

  4. Add garlic, sautee 2 minutes more.

  5. Add spice blend and mix it up for 15 seconds or so.

  6. Add 1/4 cup water and deglaze the pan, scraping the bottom to get all the garlic and spices.

  7. Crumble in tofu and mix well. Don't crush the tofu, just kind of lift it and mix it around. You want it to remain chunky.

  8. Let cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding splashes of water if necessary to keep it from sticking too much. Lower the heat a bit if you find that it is sticking.

  9. Add lime juice.

  10. Grate the carrot into it and fold.
