We have a slight problem in our house: one person has an aversion to eggs (for the record: it’s not me, nor is it either of the kids). As a result, I have logged a lot of kitchen hours trying to perfect the tofu scramble. I know what you’re thinking: tofu scramble is some bland, crazy hippy s#*!. Well, it doesn’t have to be. You just need to aggressively season (chili powder, smoked paprika, oregano, lots of pepper, and such) that big pan of tofu and veggies. I like to add chopped potatoes and black beans to the tofu scramble for the perfect breakfast burrito (which we often have for dinner). Leftover tofu filling is also great in quesadillas, as in today’s lunch. Iain helped me pack the lunches last night and he went for a nice combination of fruit to go with the quesadillas.
