Tofu Scramble

Recipe Highlights: Turmeric & Firm Tofu

Tofu Scramble

This is one of the cheapest plant based egg substitutions. Just egg is a great substitution but it tends to be expensive and yields less servings. But firm tofu is only $1-2 for 14 ounces of organic tofu! So consider adding it to your grocery list!

This tofu Scramble has a great taste but the downside is it requires about 1/2 tsp or more salt for the soy to fully absorb and release an all around delicious taste. 
This recipe is delicious with salsa or your choice of hot sauce. The nutrition facts does not include added salt as this depends on your own preference.
