Scrambled Tempeh or Tofu

When I was raising my son, Jesse, Fridays were a sacred pizza and movie night for our tripod family. On those occasions when we deviated from pizza, our shift was small—vegetarian nachos. Our dinner had to be fun, flavorful, nutrient infused, and easy to eat from the coffee table. Shifting away from the chorizo we’d top it with, I created a Mexican spiced tofu crumble. (If you have my cookbook Weekday Wonders, you’ll see it in the Kid’s Kreations section as Not-So Notty Nachos.) It serves fabulously as a vegan option to eggs and fills soft tortillas perfectly for a vegan taco. This makes a fabulous go-to recipe option! It only takes minutes to prepare and can be adapted to any meal of the day. Be sure to buy non-GMO or organic soy products.
