NYCfitfam's DIVINE Scrambled Tofu

JamieKraussHess_ScrambledTofu

So I have this thing with tofu... I'm not a vegetarian, but I'm just obsessed with the stuff. I love everything about it and will eat it any which way. One of my favorite finds is discovering new brunch spots that have scrambled tofu on the menu. Nothing revs me up on a Sunday morning more than this!

George has always tolerated my obsession, approaching it with trepidation and mild curiosity. He hadn't really eaten it much before meeting me, but the few times he did, he wasn't into it. Whether it was the taste or the texture, it just wasn't his cup of (soy) tea.

That said, he's a trooper and always willing to give things a try for the sake of making me happy (swoon). Over the past five years of our marriage, he's tried tofu every which way, and has grown to really enjoy it, when prepared correctly.

He was DETERMINED to figure out how to cook my favorite scrambled tofu dish, and he reverse engineered it after eating it several times at some of our favorite restaurants.

GUYS... HE NAILED IT.

Here's the recipe he came up with - if you're a tofu fan (or even just a fan of delicious scrambled eggs), I highly recommend you give it a whirl!
