Tofu Scramble

Have you been wanting to try cooking with tofu, but not sure what to make? It IS a weird food, but is extremely versatile. It is so easy to cook with, and takes on any flavor you add to it. Tofu is used in place of egg in this recipe. You could use any spice combination and any vegetable you like. This tofu scramble makes a great breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and is also a great lean and green meal! Let me know how yours turns out!
