Tofu scramble, homemade salsa and roasted veg.

Morning! I’ve had a crappy night’s sleep so I’m feeling really tired but here’s another recipe post for you.

I’ve been seeing recipes for tofu scramble around so I decided to try it, I used this recipe and actually had all the ingredients this time! I’d say that this is another easy and relatively cheap recipe, especially as I made two servings of the scramble and saved a bit of the tofu for a stir fry. Basically you mash the tofu (I used a fork) and fry it with the seasoning for 5-10 minutes. I had a bit of a palaver with the turmeric, I had read that it’s not too spicy so I put in a reasonable amount. They were wrong and made the mixture unpleasant to eat, even after I mixed it into beans. Spicy breakfasts are not my cup of tea, oh well you live and learn.

Here’s the ingredients for you

  • 1 block firm or extra firm tofu
  • 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

The second batch turned out better and you really only need a tiny bit of turmeric as it’s for the colour, the taste comes from the garlic and onion. The second time I made the scramble I made this salsa as a side because I fancied something fresh, this combination was absolutely gorgeous. The salsa was also very easy to make in the food processor. I used a pinch of dried hot pepper powder because I didn’t have fresh chillies, defrosted frozen white onion, cherry tomatoes instead of large tomatoes, and lemon juice instead of lime.

Here’s the ingredients for you

  • 2-3 medium sized fresh tomatoes (from 1 lb to 1 1/2 lb), stems removed
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 serrano chiles or 1 jalapeño chile (stems, ribs, seeds removed), less or more to taste
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of dried oregano (crumble in your fingers before adding), more to taste
  • Pinch of ground cumin, more to taste

I also thought I’d add some photos of roasted veg which I made not that long ago, it’s a tray of sweet potato, butternut squash, red onion and asparagus with a splash of olive oil. I accidentally topped it with mint instead of Italian herbs but they were still soft with some crispy edges, and very tasty.
