Tofu scramble is something that we probably eat every weekend. We really really really LOVE tofu scramble. And this recipe isn’t your standard “throw the tofu into the pan with some curry powder” kind of scramble, no sir, this is so delicious and unique that after trying it, you’ll never want to make it any other way – trust.
We’ve been to a restaurant in downtown Denver that makes their scramble so unlike any scramble we’ve had before that we just HAD to recreate it somehow. Last time we visited that restaurant, we noticed their scramble had a little “contains nuts” asterisk next to it, and we were seated in full view of the kitchen where we saw a huge pan of roasted nuts being pulled from the oven… hmmm…
So we’re not sure if this is exactly how they make it but this scramble contains a wonderful roasted cashew crema mixed in that adds so much flavor, we’ll never go back to making it the ol’ standard way!
This is for that person who says “ehh, tofu scramble is alright…” let us change your mind! The BEST tofu scramble right in your pan – we usually top it with some kale and serve it up with breakfast potatoes and a mimosa.
