Spiced Tofu Scramble
Another must in any vegan recipe collection is a tofu scramble. There are various adaptations on my site, but this spicy version takes a basic recipe and gives it something extremely different. This has a wonderful texture and delicious nutty flavour.
|10 Minutes||Serves 2||? kcal per serving
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic
250g of smoked tofu, crumbled
4 medium sized mushrooms, sliced
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 teaspoon of curry powder mixed with 50 ml of water
150 ml of water
1 teaspoon of brown mustard seeds
1 medium red chilli, finely chopped (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper
1 Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the onion, garlic and mustard seeds until the onion has softened and turns slightly golden. Add the curry powder/water mix and stir until the mixture becomes dry.
2 Now add the chopped tomatoes and mushrooms and continue to fry over a medium heat for a further 2 minutes.
3 Add the water, salt, pepper, chilli and sugar and simmer for a further 1 minute before adding the tofu.
4 Continue to stir and heat through, allowing the liquid to reduce until you have achieved the desired consistency.
