food (food) | tofu scramble

To say that I LOVE Amy's Tofu Scramble is a little bit of an understatement. To say that I'm OBSESSED is a little more accurate. They're easy for me to pack in my bag if I'm on the go in the morning and they don't smell up the communal kitchen like eggs do - which is key in an office setting.  So in true "me" fashion, I decided to re-create my own version of Amy's Tofu Scramble and I'm not going to lie...it was amazing!  So much that the inner fat kid in me wanted to have another serving, but I refrained and decided to split up the left overs for breakfast the next couple of days.

Tofu Scramble

What you'll need:
  • 1/2 yellow onion (chopped)
  • Chopped veggies (I used about a cup of Trader Joe's Chopped Veggie mix which includes brocolli, cabbage, celery, carrots, green pepper and jicima)
  • 1 Tomato (chopped)
  • 1 Green onion stem (chopped)
  • Garlic (chopped)
  • 1 packet Sazon Goya seasoning (You can find this in the Mexican food section of any grocery store. If you've never tried it - it's a miracle worker and makes everything taste delish)
  • 1 Pack of Firm Tofu (cubed)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Olive oil
Tofu Scramble

    Directions:
    1. Heat olive oil (about a tbsp) in a large pan.
    2. Add chopped vegetables, onions and garlic.  Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder, then saute until onions are translucent.
    3. Add chopped tomatoes and scallions into pan.  Saute for another 1 - 2 minutes.
    4. Add cubed tofu into pan and Sazon Goya into pan.  Mix well with sauteed vegetables.
    5. Heat for about 5 minutes and serve.
