Scrambled Tofu


Tofu is fairly recent regular addition to my kitchen /cooking. It is very similar to paneer, which is an Indian cheese that does not have any particular taste and can be used for sweet and savoury recipes. As a result I use tofu more regularly. It absorbs all the flavours and hence makes it very versatile.

A few years ago I bought a basic quick vegetarian recipe book from a supermarket and Scrambled Tofu was one of the recipes in it. It was a simple red capsicum, tofu and chives scramble. I like the idea and added a few other ingredients to give extra taste and flavour to the tofu. This is a good breakfast / brunch recipe, or even to eat as a healthy snack and a good alternative to scrambled eggs.

Scrambled Tofu

Like I improvised with the ingredients, you can use what ever combination of vegetables and herbs and spices that you like. This combination that I have used gives a very Chinese feel that is simple and fresh tasting.


Preparation time: 15 mins          Cooking time: 10 mins          Serves: 2

6 slices of toasted and buttered wholemeal bread

3 to 4 tbsp sunflower oil

200g soft tofu drained and cut into 2 cm cubes

5 to 6 chestnut mushroom cut into 2 cm chunks

1 each red capsicum and red onion chopped into 1 cm cubes

1 clove of garlic grated or minced

1/2 inch piece of ginger grated

2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander with stalks

1/2 tsp soy sauce

salt and pepper to taste


1) Chop all the vegetables and heat (medium heat) a large sauce pan. Add the oil, the tofu and the vegetables, cook while stirring continuously until brown.

2) Add the seasoning and soy sauce and cook for a further few minutes. Switch off the heat and add the chopped coriander, serve on the warm butter toast, enjoy 🙂

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog. I have never used tofu before merely because I don’t find any and it is a great substitute for vegetarians.

    Kiran ~ I visit your blog regularly and find some good ideas from your cooking, keep up the good work of introducing us to Greek food. If you can find some then it is a good ingredient to play around with.
