Delicious Scrambled “Egg”
This recipe makes “Scrambled Eggs” that looks a lot like real scrambled eggs.
I have made “ scrambled eggs ” several times, but I always used the regular firm tofu which I either grated or mashed. I recently ate the tofu scrambled egg at the Palm Greens Cafe in Palm Springs, California. The texture differed from mine.
I set out to try this dish a few days ago and then found that the only type of tofu in my 'fridge was the the firm silken tofu. Reluctantly, I decided to try it.
Well, as it turns out, it was a good thing that I did not have the regular firm tofu, because the silken firm tofu produced “scrambled eggs” that looked so much like the real eggs. The texture was soft and with the addition of spices it was really delicious.
Here is the recipe.

The firm silken tofu texture is soft and easily crumbles into pieces. You can also lightly press it to remove any liquid. I use a non-stick pot to cook tofu. I am not sure how well it will cook in a regular pot. I had planned to use the silken tofu for a dessert but it turned out to be perfect for scrambled tofu.
If you are unable to find the particular brand of tofu that I used, the recipe will most likely work with any other brand of silken tofu.
