Super-fast Scrambled Tofu

So fast, easy and delicious! Silken tofu is super healthy, full of protein and other goodies as well as making a very creamy scramble. We give you the basic recipe, which is great in itself but feel free to improvise; see our optional extras suggestions in the ingredients section.  

 

Look out for brands like Blue Dragon, Morinaga, Yutaka, Clearspring and Morinu, all in tetrapacks. Fresh silken tofu is made by Taifun and Oriental stores usually sell a range of fresh and tetrapacks. Pulmuone brand is a fresh tofu range that is very good
