Before going vegan, I always began every morning with an egg. I was always hesitant to give the tofu scramble option a try, but once I did I didn’t have to miss eggs anymore! I personally like to cook the tofu a little longer that was it gets a little bit crispy, but that’s just me! Try this recipe for a fluffy, spicy, and flavorful tofu scramble that is totally cruelty free! P.S. Don’t forget to press your tofu for 15 minutes before you cook it!
This recipe is so versatile! Some ways it can be used…
