10-Minute Tofu Scramble


Tofu is not only a nutrient dense food, but a very versatile one at that! Tofu comes in a variety of textures and choosing the right firmness depends on what you want to use it for. Looking to blend tofu into your soups, sauces, or smoothies? Choose soft or silken tofu. Looking to bake or stir fry with tofu? Choose firm or extra firm, and make sure to press any extra water out! Tofu is a very bland food and will absorb whatever flavours you add to the dish - you can even try marinating tofu overnight for an improved flavour profile!

Tofu is a soy protein, which is surrounded by myths and a bad reputation but soy protein is actually very healthy - click here and here to read our blog posts all about the benefits of soy protein!
