SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made this yesterday for breakfast (well it was breakfast at 1pm so lets just call it brunch) Very good! I didnt have any tumeric though, i added a dash of curry powder in its place. I think they could use a tad less soy sauce though. But i ate all of them by myself  ;)b

Made this for lunch. Reminded me very much of scrambled eggs. However, I didn't get the bright yellow color as shown in the pictures posted for this recipe. Hmmmm...

I would just say tofu scramble. I don't think it exactly tastes like scrambled eggs (because it's not..), but it's really freaking good. I don't know if it really matters, though? "Scrambled eggs," or tofu scramble. Hopefully he likes it! Make sure you do cook it long enough so that it dries up some, and gets slightly browned. That's how I like it, at least.

Super, thanks for that.  I've read similar comments on 'macaroni "cheese"' recipes as in - yeah, it's not cheese, but it's good, so shut up and eat it :) 
I'm going to be super excited if he likes it, and is prepared to swap regular eggs for this instead, so will come back with a review, maybe after this weekend.

I've never made a tofu scramble of any variety, my husband loves scrambled eggs, any suggestions on whether it's worth trying to pull this off as a substitute or should I just try it as a 'new dish' without bringing in 'scrambled egg' expectations...

Cheers! :)

I'm so glad I tried this! I thought I already had, and didn't like it. No way. I love this scramble. So simple, but great flavor. I just added s and p. I would easily eat the whole thing, if I didn't have to save some for P. I will make this again, soon.

I tried this yesterday because I didn't have many veggies in stock and also because I liked the idea of a plain tofu scramble.
I wasn't expecting too much from it, but it turned out great.  I was surprised at how tasty it wass for so few ingredients.  For me the amounts of flavourings in the recipe is perfect.

Thank you - I'm just about to go and make it again now!

I just ate the whole recipe by myself. I think that's all I need to say about that.

I made this recipe today for lunch and served on sprouted whole grain toast as a sandwich with Vegenaise and ketchup.  It is delicious!  While I love all kinds of tofu scrambles with loads of spices and veggies, this, in its simplicity, is probably closest to actual scrambled eggs (Of course, this is from my foggy memory.  I haven't had eggs in many, many years, so take my comment for what it's worth.).  When you're in the mood for a super simple, yet tasty tofu scramble, this is the recipe for you.

FWIW, I've settled on these adjustments to the recipe to make it perfect for me:

    Decrease the low sodium soy sauce to 1.5 Tablespoons.
    Substitute garlic powder for the onion powder.
