Tofu ScrambleTofu is a versatile plant protein that adapts to the flavors of most dishes. Due to its texture, soft tofu works best in this dish. Flaxseed is a good vegetarian source of healthy omega-3 fats. For a twist, ingredients such as chopped onion, pepper, tomatoes, or scallions can be sautéed in the same pan before adding the egg mixture.
- 4 egg whites
- 4 ounces soft tofu
- 2 tablespoons grated cheese
- 1 tablespoon golden flaxseed (optional)
Combine the egg whites and tofu in a blender and pulse briefly for 3 to 5 seconds (be careful not to overblend).
Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add egg and tofu blend and scramble for 5 minutes. Top with cheese and flaxseed, if desired.
