Try this tofu scramble recipe for a good alternative to scrambled eggs for a meatless meal for those of you who may be vegetarian or vegan.

Tofu is a great low-carbohydrate protein source. Whether eggs don’t agree with your stomach or you just want to try tofu for fun, this recipe makes it easy. Use your favorite non-starchy vegetables and spices to personalize this dish. You could even make this with a side of veggie bacon or veggie sausage if you like.

If you’ve never tried tofu before, don’t be scared! It has a neutral flavor that isn’t overpowering and it will take on the flavor of the seasonings that you use in the recipe. So feel free to spice this scramble up!

For this recipe, you will need to “press” the tofu to get excess moisture out of it. The best way to do this would be to wrap it in a few layers of paper towels and/or a clean kitchen towel. Place it on a plate and then layer something heavy on top of it, such as books. Let it sit for anywhere from 15 mins to an hour until some of the liquid presses out. This helps avoid mushy tofu.
