Sunday brunch and cartoons have become a tradition for us. Cook up a big plate of food, then settle down for some South Park before going about our day. Normally, I would have a few stalks of asparagus or some other veggie on the side, but we were all out of fresh veggies, so this was, unfortunately, a very brown and beige meal.
Since we stopped buying eggs for home cooking, we’ve started making scrambled tofu for some of our brunches. You can use soft or silken tofu, but if you’re using soft tofu, you’ll need to cut it into small cubes before scrambling. Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking oil, then cook over medium heat, turning frequently until light and fluffy.
I usually season my tofu pretty aggressively with a mixture of cumin, paprika, cayenne, and nutritional yeast. Add salt and pepper too, of course. Nutritional yeast not only adds a subtle cheese-like flavor, but also adds a light yellow color to the normally sad looking, pale tofu. For this batch, we also added some colorful chopped peppers to the scramble.
Easy Home Fries
Can’t believe I’ve never made home fries before! They’re incredibly simple to whip up at the last minute. I used this recipe for reference, but added half an onion and only used 2 tablespoons of margarine. I also added paprika because I’m a bit of a paprika fanatic. It turned out great, but I would cut the potatoes a little smaller in the future.
