Back with some tofu!

Apologies for the lack of recent posts- I'll try to make up for it though! Here I have some scrambled tofu heaped on toast. This is my own recipe I've experimented with for it(whyowhy do so many recipe books use grated carrot?! Ewww!)-

250g block tofu(I use cauldron 'cos it crumbles really well so it's ideal for scrambles!)
One onion, diced
1 heaped tsp turmeric
4 heaped tbsp nutritional yeast
6 tbsp olive oil
salt, to taste

-saute the onion in 4 tbsp olive oil in a pan over a high heat
-crumble the tofu in with your fingers
-sprinkle the turmeric and nutritional yeast over the top, then the other 2 tbsp olive oil, then stir till it's well absorbed
-stir-fry for about 6-8 minutes or until golden brown and crispy, then serve over toast and sprinkle with salt

This here is Veganomicon's Curried Tofu, served with Vegan with a Vengeance's garlicky roasted brussels' sprouts, and some frozen onion rings (Morrisons own brand- they're vegan! ;)) It was quite nice, and I meant to use the leftovers for sandwiches with the curried mayo serving suggestion, but, er..., as the lolcats would say, the leftovers; we eated them...

Oooh, tofu! I've been meaning to scramble me some of that for ages, but I never seem to get around to it. One day, though...

Love tofu and I agree with you completely about using cauldron for scambles - mori-nu just turns into mush! and yay Morrisons for making their onion rings vegan!
