By now I’m sure you noticed that we LIVE for tofu scramble here at Food Heaven. I love incorporating my scramble into different dishes. This burrito is perfect for a weekday power breakfast or a lazy weekend brunch. Check out our tofu scramble recipe here.
Tofu is a great source of protein that is made from curdled soy milk that the water has been removed from. Tofu tends to have a meat like texture that many people like. Soy provides a healthy dose of calcium and manganese and many studies have found that the phytoestrogens in soy may help to reduce some cancers such as breast cancer or endometrial cancers and reduce the risk of heart disease. Who doesn’t like the sound of that?To make the scramble, you will some need tofu, a few spices, some onions, a little bit of garlic, tomatoes, vegetable oil, and a nice pinch of salt and pepper. Start off by draining and drying your tofu and cutting it into about one inch cubes. The fun part starts here when you get to mash the tofu with your hands to make a texture similar to that of scrambled eggs. You’ll then saute your onions, garlic, and tomatoes with some turmeric and curry for a couple of minutes. Toss in that tofu and mix together to cook for another few minutes. Then, I simply added the scramble to my wrap and tossed in kidney beans, avocado, greens, tomatoes and salsa.
