Asian Tofu Scramble

Recently, I found a local Korean market that has incredible fresh tofu. I’m not in the habit of getting misty-eyed over tofu, but this stuff is amazing.


Typically, the flavour of tofu is drowned out with sauces and marinades. I wanted to make an easy meal that would celebrate this tofu without completely obliterating the tofu flavour. 

I snuck some vegetables in there…


This is reality food; the type of food most people have the energy and time to make at the end of a long workday. It’s not fancy but it is inexpensive and it fills you up!

Serve it with hash browns for breakfast or put it on rice for dinner. A little hot sauce doesn’t hurt!
