TOFU SCRAMBLE FOR BREAKFAST


TOFU SCRAMBLE FOR BREAKFAST
This is another healthy breakfast option like omelets with egg whites. Usually we have bread toasts with omelets or scrambled egg during week days. My husband is very comfortable with eggs for breakfast but having eggs daily is a big No No for me. Since we started having tofu recently, I came up with the idea of scrambling tofu instead of eggs for breakfast. This idea worked out rather well in our family. They can be scrambled plain with just some salt and pepper. I have zinged it up with some bell peppers and a little bit of spices. If needed, any other vegetables can also be added. This is very tasty than the plain scramble. Here goes the recipe:

INGREDIENTS:
Silken tofu, 1 packet.
Onion, medium, 1.
Bell pepper, any color, 1.
Fennel seeds, ¼ teaspoon.
Turmeric powder, ¼ teaspoon.
Ginger-garlic paste, 1 teaspoon.
Green chili, 1-2 depending upon the spice level consumed.
Salt as per taste.

PREPARATION:
Dice the onion and bell pepper into small pieces and slit the green chili into 2. Heat a pan with some oil. When the oil is hot, add the diced onion, bell pepper, and chili and sauté for a minute. Then add the fennel seeds, turmeric powder, ginger-garlic paste, salt and keep sautéing until the onion and peppers are tender. Now add the silken tofu and mix everything well breaking the tofu finely while mixing. Serve hot with warm toast.
