Ingredients

  • 28 oz extra firm tofu blocks (from two 14 oz packets)
  • 14 oz cut green beans canned
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper (seeds removed and sliced in medium size pieces)
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • salt as needed
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala powder

Instructions

  • Drain the excess water from the tofu packets and place the tofu blocks in a large non stick pan or skillet.
  • Heat the pan so the some of the water from the blocks of tofu will get evaporated.
  • Now gently slice and scramble the tofu using a good quality spatula. I sliced the tofu in little large slices and scrambled only a bit, since I prefer large tofu slices even in the scramble. You may scramble or slice them to your preference.
  • Also add salt & garlic, cook in low to medum heat until most of the water content evaporates which takes about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add sliced yellow pepper also the pan.
  • Let this mixture cook for another 3 to 4 minutes until the yellow pepper also cooks slightly and the water from the pepper is also evaporated.
  • Add the oil & cut green beans (make sure to remove the water from the canned green beans before adding to the pan), stir in with the contents in the pan, let the mixture cook in medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until the tofu is beginning to lightly brown.
  • Once the tofu begins to brown, stir well (and flip the pieces if you have sliced it large) and add the spices - turmeric & garam masala.
  • Stir well again to coat the spices with the tofu mixture and stir fry the contents for another 2 minutes.
  • Finally add the soy sauce, let it slightly caramelize in the pan for few seconds, and then mix the soy sauce with the contents in the pan.
  • Stir fry the tofu & veggies in the spices & soy sauce mixture for another couple of minutes until the tofu is all slightly browned and it's well mixed with the sauce & spices.
  • Enjoy the easy and delicious scrambled tofu with veggies along with brown rice or use it as a filling for wraps or sandwiches as you like!
