No Oil Scrambled Tofu

IMG_1988IMG_1989 If you dislike tofu, but love (or used to love for my vegan friends) scrambled eggs, then this recipe is for you! It's so easy and it takes as long as you want it to take! It can take from 5-20 minutes. Depending on how crisp you like your scrambled tofu.

It's soft from the inside and crispy from the outside. Flavor? Whatever you want. That's my favorite thing about tofu. I highly recommend hot chili pepper sauce, takes it to a whole new level.
