yummy, yummy tofu

tofu in a dish

If you're in need of a quick pick-me-up and have some tofu handy, you should try this super-quick scrambled tofu. It takes less than five minutes to make, from decision to in-your-bowl!

serves one
a little bit of olive oil
1/2 a carton of firm (not extra-firm) tofu, 3.5-4oz
1/8t each black salt* and turmeric
a couple of grinds of black pepper and a couple of shakes of garlic powder (I like Spike Garlic Magic)

Heat your frying pan over medium heat with a little olive oil in it. Squish the tofu through your fingers directly into the pan (you needn't wait for the pan to heat up), then add the seasonings. Stir around to get everything mixed together, then stir occasionally till it's all warm and steamy. Transfer to your dish and eat.

*You can get this at your local Indian or Pakistani store, or from Amazon.

Sounds a little like something we used to eat downtown!
