Breakfast Scramble

What you need: 

2 new red potatoes, diced w/skins on
1 small onion diced
1/2 bell pepper diced, any color
1 lb. extra firm fresh packed tofu, crumbled
nutritional yeast
chipotle powder or cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
olive oil for frying or whatever else you prefer.

What you do: 

Fry diced potato in oil first. When potato is almost done, add onion, bell pepper, crumbled tofu, and remaining spices (Except nutritional yeast). I really like chipotle powder, but if its not available or you don't like it, you can use cayenne powder, or omit that step all together.
When it is all cooked, then I stir in the nutritional yeast - howe'ver much you prefer- to give it a cheezy egg taste. sometimes I also add a little soy margarine in this step for added flavor.
Sometimes I use Fantastic Foods Tofu Scramble with this recipe. But when I don't have any on hand, I make it from scratch. You can vary this recipe in so many ways to suit your taste. Its really wonderful.
I hope you try it, and experiment with your own ingredients. Its great for any meal of the day.

This is what I did

I fry the diced potato (1 potato) in the oil then after 5-10 min, add the garlic (3 cloves minced) and onion (half). After 2-5 minutes add the tofu scramble (cramble the fofu, add liquid aminos to taste,i used Braggs, then add also celery salt,just be careful that it won't get salty,add basil,add turmeric for color)stir it all in the pan then add nutritional yeast flake,depends on how much you want.
It's soo yummy!


YUM> I just made this without potatoes, and made a cheese sauce with the nutritional yeast instead of just using flakes. It was awesome! Even my son who says he hates tofu ate it and loved it! It almost seemed like the old days eating breakfast at Cracker Barrel, sans the bacon fat and cholesterol!  Paired with a Matthews Whole Wheat English Muffin, it was delish!


The crowd I made this for really enjoyed this scramble, although the weaker among them found it a little too spicy.  I just ran out of nutritional yeast yesterday so I couldn't add any, which would have rounded out the flavor a little more and would have taken it from very good to amazing.
