Beckys Super Good Tofu Scramble

What you need: 

1 green onion
2 small cloves garlic
2 strips Smart bacon or other breakfast meat substitute
1/2 large block of firm tofu
couple dashes of turmeric
splash of liquid aminos
pinch of nutritional yeast flakes
oil for the pan

What you do: 

First, you've got to heat up the pan on medium-high heat with the oil to cook the bacon-but don't cook it too long or it will be overcooked once you're done. While you're cooking the bacon, start chopping up the garlic and green onion. press as much water from the tofu as possible, then use a cheese grater to grate the tofu into semi-small chunks. you could probably mash it a bit with a fork instead, but I find grating to be a lot quicker. After you have the tofu grated into a bowl, add the onion, garlic, bacon (cooked and cut into small pieces by this time), the turmeric and liquid aminos. Youll want to stir this up gently until you are satisfied that everything is well mixed. Put it in the pan (it should sizzle a bit) and sprinkle the nutritional yeast flakes over the top. Keep stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes or until you've got the desired look of scrambled eggs.
I like to eat this with some hash browns, of course. This is very very tasty, if i do say so myself. Oh, and be careful with the turmeric. it stains everything yellow...
I hope you all enjoy it! Let me know...

SO HOW'D IT GO?

The tofu was pretty bland in this recipe, so I ended up adding a crap load of garlic powder, salt and pepper to it. It was good that way.

re: tofu bacon comment......you could also try making your own, there are many wonderful recipes on here, i make mine by frying thinly sliced (pre frozen and defrosted and squeezed tofu) in a little oil, then turn heat down, add soya sauce and then sprinkle of nutritional yeast, stir about...done

Doesn't meatless bacon use eggwhites?  Kinda defeats the purpose of a tofu scramble, doens't it?

Actually, no, several of the veggie bacon products are totally vegan.  Try Smart Bacon or Fakin Bacon.
