Spiced Tofu Scramble

We love tofu scramble in our house.  There are loads of recipes for it online but this is my favourite!  It’s a kinda Moroccan-inspired spicy version and soooo good!  I add spinach for extra goodness and it soaks up the flavour of the spices and is delicious.  It has loads of protein, so is great after exercise too.  We usually eat it on toast or as part of a vegan fry up or breakfast burrito.  For anyone who hasn’t tried tofu scramble, don’t be scared by the thought of tofu.  This tastes very like scrambled egg and the tofu takes on the flavour of whatever you add to it.  This is so delicious and definitely worth trying.  I use Cauldron tofu as I find it crumbles up well and has a really nice texture, but you can use any tofu that isn’t too firm, so silken tofu, or firm silken tofu works well.

Roughly 400g tofu (I use Cauldron brand tofu), drained, rinsed and mashed with a fork

2 teaspoons cumin seeds

2 teaspoons smoked paprika

Heat a large frying pan with the olive oil in it over a medium heat.
