I am not a vegetarian, nor do I play one on TV! LOL! However, my sister is and when she visits, I try to accommodate her eating preferences. With a little research and a lot of experimenting, I came up with something that she likes and pretty much expects me to make when she comes. I still haven't gotten her approval on some of my experiments for other meals...sigh... One meal at I time I guess...
Vegetarian 'Bacon and Eggs' Tofu Scramble
2 tbsp olive oil
3 - 4 strips vegetarian mock bacon
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 green onions, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 container firm or extra-firm tofu, well pressed and mashed
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp soy sauce or Braggs Liquid Aminos
1/2 tsp nutritional yeast
salt and pepper to taste
Cook the vegetarian "bacon" in olive oil for a few minutes, just until cooked but not crisp. Cut into bite-sized pieces.
Return bacon to the pan along with the mashed tofu, onions, bell pepper, turmeric and soy sauce, stirring to combine. Sautee for a 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently and adding more oil if needed. Remove from heat and stir in nutritional yeast. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
