slimy sloppy tofu-eggs


i am so glad i finally started this blog because now that i accidentally came up with the perfect tofu scramble concoction, i have a place where i can share it with the whole wide world.

being vegan isn't hard for me. sometimes it's annoying at parties when i have to deny cute non-vegan finger foods, but it's a fleeting lament. the one thing i truly miss is a good breakfast of slimy, sloppy eggs. fried eggs, scrambled eggs, eggs benedict, egg salad --- it's all basically perfect in mine eyes. and that is what makes this happy accident so near and dear to my heart.

serves: 1 hungry hungry vegan
this can be easily doubled using a full package of silken tofu, and it can be spread even further by adding mix-ins (veggies, beans, etc).

splash of olive oil
1/2 block firm silken tofu
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 squirts bragg's liquid aminos
a heavy sprinkling of (freshly ground) black pepper
a pinch of red pepper flakes
a shake or two of smoked paprika
1 heaping spoonful of nutritional yeast

heat up a small skillet over medium heat, add oil. crumble tofu into medium-large pieces (it will crumble further as you cook it). add in garlic and mix it up with a wooden spoon. add bragg's,  black pepper, red pepper, and paprika. let cook for 3-4 minutes until the tofu is warm. add in nutritional yeast and mix it up  to coat the tofu. cook for about a minute more, and then serve! delicious with toast.
