Spanish Tofu Scramble

Spanish tofu scramble
The first time I had tofu scramble was 16 years ago at a little diner on State Street in Santa Barbara, I remember loving it and surprised at the resemblance to eggs. It had sliced jalapenos and came with a side of tortillas.  Once you try the tofu version you may decide this is your preferred scramble. It has the same texture, looks like eggs, but is better for you, provides protein and no cholesterol.

This is my absolute favorite tofu scramble and can be enjoyed in a variety of ways and for any meal of the day. A side of simple green salad and this makes a wonderful brunch or dinner, or as a taco for lunch or dinner or a burrito breakfast wrap for breakfast or lunch.

Note: can be gluten free if using GF tamari and not using the sausage and replacing the tortilla for cabbage leaf. 

14 oz extra firm tofu drained and crumbled
15 cherry tomatoes quartered
1 medium white onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 chipotle pepper in adobe sauce minced
