Alright, I'm back from my self-imposed seasonal depression sabbatical -- because the last thing the internet needs is more self pitying blog posts, amiright? Anyway, Randy and I were making thee best breakfast-for-dinner meal this weekend when I realized that I hadn't put together a blog post in a while so I grabbed my camera and took a few pictures before we sat down to eat.
I could probably eat breakfast 3x a day... and sometimes I do. (Although I'm not sure if Koala Crisp counts as a meal.) We forgot it was a holiday weekend and so instead of fighting our way through the Safeway we just raided the fridge & freezer and threw together a delicious meal.
Scrambled Tofu w/ Bacon
Mmm. Bacon. That part was pretty straight forward - we had half a pack of bacon in the freezer so I zapped it in the microwave for about a minute so I could peel it apart before putting it in the frying pan. We had two batches of bacon to cook so that took the same time as the tofu.
I buy prepressed organic tofu so I skip the whole pressing under a plate step but if you buy water packed tofu make sure you press it for half an hour first. I like to use firm or extra firm. Medium works too but it's a bit mushy. Pour a tbsp or so of oil in the pan (we use canola) and crumble your brick of tofu into the pan while heating it over medium-high. I don't measure any of my ingredients, it's all to preference. Add in about 1 tbsp of tumeric and mix it up so your tofu turns a nice bright yellow colour. This won't last so enjoy it while you can.
Next throw in anything you have in your crisper, I added some green onion & green pepper. Anything watery, like tomatos, should be added right at the end. I seasoned it with some garlic, onion powder and the best part, soy sauce. I use gluten free low sodium soy sauce so I really pour it on, but if you had a nice dark sauce you could use a lot less. I'm a bit of a soy sauce addict hence the brown scramble.. but it's delicious!
You can cook it until it's heated up and browned a little bit, serve it with bacon (or any veg side dish) and you've got yourself a delicious & super easy breakfast-for-dinner.
