Here's my new favourite dish that only takes 10 minutes! You know those days that seem to never end, and by the time you get home you just want to put some sweat pants on, watch a movie on Netflix and eat everything in sight? Well, instead of regretting that tub of ice cream and those ketchups chips tomorrow, here’s a really easy, simple and satisfying meal that can be eaten at any time of the day that will prevent you from feeling all the feelings tomorrow.
I’ve literally made this 10 minute tofu scramble 5 times this week, twice for breakfast, once for lunch and twice for dinner, and I haven’t gotten bored of it because it’s so versatile! You can have it for breakfast with sautéd veggies and shredded cheese, for lunch in a wrap with your favourite fillings, or for dinner instead of having rice or pasta!
10 minute tofu scramble
- A brick of extra firm tofu, shredded with a cheese grater (medium size shred)
- ½ tsp. Garam masala
- 1 tsp. Turmeric
- 1 ½ tsp. Chili powder
- 1 tsp. Garlic powder
- Pinch of salt
You can press your tofu to get the excess water out, but if you’re lazy like I am, never mind that step. Shred that tofu right into your pan, and drizzle 1 tbsp. of olive oil on it. Sprinkle your spices and add your pinch of salt and sauté that tofu until its warmed through.
It will go yellow because of the turmeric, so feel free to sneak some of this 10 minute tofu scramble into your next brunch with your family, and they will be surprised to see that they aren’t actually eating an egg scramble!
Right before plating, taste it to see if the spices are right, and adjust to taste. You can play around with the spice mix as well to make it your own.
There’s the hardest part. Now, to actually make a meal out of it, you just need to either fry up some veggies to accompany it, stuff your wrap with other stuffing, or you know, just add more leftovers to the mix.
This is definitely a new staple of mine, and such a time saver!
