Recipe: Tofu Scramble

I was scrolling through some recipes and I came across this one. I had all of the ingredients (almost), so I decided to give it ago. I added a few extra veges to use up what had in the fridge.

Ingredients:

500 Grams (14 Ounce) of Firm Tofu
3-4 Tablespoons of Tamari or Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons of Sesame Oil
¼ Cup of Nutritional Yeast (also known as Savoury Yeast)
¼ Teaspoon of Garlic Powder
¼ Teaspoon of Salt
¼ Teaspoon of Tumeric
½ Teaspoon Ground Cumin

1 Small Yellow Onion, diced
¼ a Cup of Red Capsicum, diced
5-6 Large Sun-Dried Tomatoes, chopped into small pieces (the kind that are lightly seasoned, packed in olive oil – don’t use the dry ones!)
2 Cups of Washed Baby Spinach
10 Mushrooms, sliced
Plus additional Sesame Oil, Soy Sauce and Nutritional Yeast (to taste)

Method:

Put Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil, Nutritional Yeast, Garlic Powder, Tumeric and Cumin in a large mixing bowl and combine.

Squeeze excess liquid out of Tofu and crumble into pieces. Add to the mixing bowl and coat thoroughly with sauce.

Pit a little vegetable oil in a large frying pan/wok and heat. Add Tofu mixture and fry for about 10 minutes.

The Marinated Tofu

Place cooked tofu in a clean bowl and add a little more oil to the pan and add the vegetables.

Ready to eat!

Verdict: Not bad. I think there was too much soy sauce, which made it a little too strong in both colour and flavour. For some reason it had a bitter flavour.
