Vegan tofu scramble with gluten free toast

Learned this ridiculously delicious and easy recipe from my mom during our trip to Maine earlier this month.

Ingredients:

  • Silken tofu (firm)
  • Tumeric
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Coconut oil
  • Onion
  • Spinach or kale

Directions:

1. Chop up tofu, set aside.

2. In a pan, sautee onion and kale (or spinach) in coconut oil.

3. Add tofu to pan. “Scramble” as you would with eggs.

4. Sprinkle with tumeric, sea salt and papper.

5. You’re work is done, my friend.

I really hate the idea of eggs, but, being a hypocrite, I like the taste on occasion.  I was shocked — shocked — at how delicious this was. It’s just as good as eggs – except better, because, you know, it’s not.. eggs.  You can even use this to make egg sandwiches. Thank me later!  Better yet, thank my mom!

Easy Tofu Angel Hair Pasta

20130217-151426.jpg

Prep time : 5 min

For this, I used half a package of House Foods shirataki angle hair tofu pasta. I’m not even a fan of tofu but these noodles are great! I used the other half of the package for miso soup. Be forewarned that it smells really bad right out of the package. This is typical for tofu noodles. But follow the directions for rinsing, draining and heating.. You’ll be just fine. The extra steps are worth it for this low carb, low cal, low fat, gluten free delight.

Prep pasta according to package directions. Heat up a quarter cup of marinara sauce. Toss pasta with minced garlic, capers, freshly ground black pepper, grated parmesan. I added a dash of hot sauce because I love spicy food.

The dish has about 100 cal, 2 grams of fat.
