Tofu scramble

There is simply no better way to start your day than this delicious tofu scramble.  I have tweaked and will continue to tweak this recipe so remember to have fun when composing your own version.  Tofu is extremely versatile because it soaks up all the delicious spices you have to offer giving it just about any flavor you desire.  My initial winning dish was adapted from Vegan with a Vengeance.  With the addition of a few elements, you can have greatness here.

Easy Breezy Tofu Scramble

1 pkg extra firm tofu - lightly squeezed and drained
2 links Tofurky sausage (or Morning Star Farms patties or omit completely)
1/2 onion finely - chopped
2 cloves garlic - finely chopped
Grated carrot
1/2 c. mushrooms - sliced and chunked
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp paprika
2 tbsp Bragg's
1/4 c. nutritional yeast

Heat oil in large skillet.  Add onion and saute about 3-4 minutes.  Add garlic, sausage, mushrooms and carrots.  Saute 4-5 minutes till veggies are crisp-tender.  Add spices and saute, stirring constantly about 1 minutes.  Crumble in tofu and stir until spices have permeated all sides of tofu.  Add braggs and about 1/4 c. water.  Cover and simmer about 10 minutes.
Once water is almost evaporated add yeast and stir till dissolved.  Serve at once.  Top with parsley and cheese of your choice or as is.
