Ttofu scrambleWhat I love about Tofu Scramble is it’s versatility. This is by no means the be all and end all recipe for this dish. Experiment with the base, and come up with different vegetables and spices to put in it. I like jalapenos and chili powder, so it goes into the one I make here at home, but you can add any thing, really, that you want to, it all depends on your palate.

The important things are the turmeric for coloring and some kind of aromatic vegetable base. That’s what gives the tofu its flavor.
