I have made many versions of scrambled tofu over my years of being vegan but this is one of the best! It’s full of flavour, with all the green goodness of kale and broccoli, as well as all the healthy benefits of fresh turmeric, ginger and garlic. I grow a lot of turmeric and ginger in my garden and after harvest I just keep it fresh in my fridge for a few weeks or months with the dirt still on it, wrapped up in a bit of newspaper. Just as I see it begin to deteriorate, I scrub off the dirt and keep it in my freezer for when it’s not in season. Taking it out when I need it for a dish such as this, or a curry, soup, smoothie, rice dish or whatever. Simply grate it frozen and add to your dish. For those chasing protein, the tofu is full of that so this breakfast has it all! I love that it’s simple to make (and did I mention it tastes wonderful?).
