Tofu Scramble

  1. Heat oil in a med-large pan over medium heat. Once hot, add chunks of tofu and lightly sear and brown the edges. About 3-5 minutes.

  2. Now sprinkle tofu with the 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and cracked pepper to taste. Let the tofu sit before moving the pieces around the pan so it has time to brown. Be gentle when stirring so the tofu doesn't break up too much. Otherwise, it will get too mushy when you add the sauce.

  3. Whisk the sauce once more if needed, then add it to the tofu and gently fold until just combined.

  4. Cook for 1-2 minutes and remove from heat. Taste for seasoning and add if needed.

  5. Top with fresh-cut chives, black pepper and, red pepper flakes if desired.

  6. Enjoy!
