Cooking crumbled firm tofu in a skillet approximates the fluffy texture of scrambled eggs in this vegetable-studded, vegetarian main dish. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Serve with steamed corn tortillas, some extra salsa and black beans.

Yum! Very Good! This is really good. My husband and I don't eat a lot of tofu dishes but we are trying to be healthier in 2011. I added a whole can of black beans and would recommend doing that. Thanks Eatingwell! Read More

This is a great dish. Even my husband loves it which was surprising. He's Japanese so he usually doesn't appreciate me doing strange things with tofu. Read More

I made this tonight and everyone loved it! Great flavor and very easy. I made a few changes: 1) Replaced the scallions with about 1/4 cup red onions; 2) Added garlic powder to the tofu 3) Skipped the salsa and drizzled a little yogurt ranch dressing on top. I also garnished the tofu mixture with a few slices of avocado and tomato. Crunchy tortilla chips (instead of steamed tortillas) were a perfect contrast to the soft tofu. I'll definitely make this again but may add more veggies next time. Read More
