scrambled tofu [camping edition]

scrambled tofu [camping edition]

hey y'all! b here.

you probably don't know this about me, but i love to cook. when i first became a vegetarian one of the first brunch dishes i had was scrambled tofu at this awesome vegetarian bistro in guelph.

inspired by the dish, i decided to try it at home.  and after many attempts, i think i have finally nailed this recipe down.

since it has become a bit of a weekend favourite in our household, i decided to give it a try while we were camping at bon echo.

so here it is, the camping edition of my scrambled tofu!

serves 2

[you will need]
1/2 brick extra firm tofu
1/2 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon bbq sauce
1 tablespoon balsamic dressing 
bit of water to thin marinade
1-1 1/2 tablespoons herb blend (you can get creative here. i used oregano, parsley & basil)
2 green onions, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 head of broccoli, chopped
handful of cherry tomatoes, halved

[to make]

dice up the tofu into cubes. this just makes it easier to make your scramble.  then mash into a good crumble.  a good old fork works best for this.

next you want to make your liquid marinade.  in this camping edition i used dijon mustard, homemade maple balsamic dressing, a homemade peach bbq sauce d had made a few weeks earlier (the recipe is from food in jar's second book, preserving by the pint) & a little water to thin it out.  mix this with the tofu.

while your tofu is soaking up the flavour of the marinade, chop up the veggies.  then, mix the tofu with all of the vegetables but the tomatoes & pour into your frying pan.

fry the vegetables & tofu until the tofu browns & gets slightly crispy and your veggies soften. 

add in the tomatoes, cooking for a minute or 2 longer, heating up the tomatoes.  serve nice and hot. 

since we were camping we had it with a side of fruit & pancakes (a camping staple).
