Here is my recipe for a tasty tofu scramble.
Scramble Tofu with Spinach, Peppers and Sausage
Serves 1 to 2
1 small potato (approximate 5 oz), peeled, rinsed, diced
4 oz block of tofu (1/4 of a 14 oz tub) firm or extra firm tofu
1 Tofurkey Kielbasa or Italian sausage, sliced into about ¼ “thick pieces
3 oz roasted red and yellow peppers (or just red) from a jar, finely chopped
4 tablespoons frozen chopped spinach, thawed (put it in a small bowl , like a ramekin, with warm water then drain in small colander when thawed or put in a small colander and run warm to hot water over it until thawed, a few minutes)
1 tablespoon store bought sofrito*
¼ teaspoon sazon goya con culantro y achiote (the orange packet)
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1- In a bowl place the tofu in between a few paper towels and press out excess water. Drain the water and then mash the tofu with a potato masher.
2- Heat a 9 to 10” non stick pan for 1 minute. Then heat the oil for 30 seconds to 1 minute. (When heating oil to make sure the oil is ready, flick a small sprinkle of water into pan with oil. If you hear a sizzle then it is ready. )
3- Add the potatoes to the pan and on a low to medium flame stir occasionally for 10 minutes.
4- Mix in the tofu and continue to stir occasional for 3 more minutes.
5- Mix in the peppers, sofrito and sazon. Continue to cook on a low to medium flame stirring occasional for 5 minutes.
6- Then mix in the spinach and sausage. Cook about 3 minutes more until the spinach is cooked and sausage is heated through.
Serving ideas- This can be a main meal for one saving leftovers for another meal. If you have leftovers store in a sealed container and reheat in the microwave about 1 minute and 30 to 40 seconds with the cover off. This can also serve two people with a side of toast for breakfast.
* Sofrito is a Spanish cooking sauce with a mixture of tomatoes, peppers, onion, cilantro and garlic. Goya makes this and can be found in supermarkets. There is Sofrito in the jar and in the frozen section. I used the one in the Jar for this recipe.
