Tofu Scramble

Tofu scramble and bread

Scrambled tofu is a dish that resembles scrambled eggs. It is delicious and can be served as a side dish with lunch or dinner, and is great for lazy weekend breakfasts. The sweetcorn, peppers and spring onions are optional. Try different vegetables depending on what’s in season. Also makes a delicious sandwich filling.
