When eggs get too eggy on a Sunday morn...
...try some scrambled tofu
What you need
1 tub of tofu from the Tofu dude at Borough market
1/2 an onion
a few sundried tomatoes
Veg stock cube (I use the green organic Kallo ones, if in Australia the Massel ones)
Roughly mash 1 packet of firm tofu in a bowl, keeping the tofu in large chunks.
Chop half an onion.
In a frying pan, fry the onion in some oil on med/high heat, add tofu and a few chopped sundried tomatoes.
Dissolve a veg stock cube in 3/4 cup of boiling water. pour stock onto tofu. Sprinkle some turmeric into the pan. Don't go too crazy otherwise your teeth will resemble a heavy smoker's.
Turn up the heat, fry and stir the mixture until the liquid has evaporated. Be careful not to break up the tofu too much, otherwise it will resemble spew.
Once the liquid has left the frypan, add some chopped spring onions or chives and stir through.
For the dairy tolerant - grate some good tasty cheese and stir through.
Serve with your favourite brekkie trimmings and lots of freshly ground black pepper.
