Notes

Spicy Tofu Scramble is also a great way to use up all of those bit and bobs of veggies in your crisper. We just happened to have tomato and spinach in our crisper but goodness you can use any vegetables you like. If you are using firmer vegetables like carrots or root vegetables be sure to cut them smaller and steam with just a couple of teaspoons of water with a lid in your frying pan for a couple of minutes so they have a chance to get tender before adding the other ingredients in the pan.
We used an extra firm tofu for this recipe as that is the consistency we were going for. We find the silken tofu does not work as well in this recipe as it is too soft and lacks texture. It is also important to dry the tofu well before adding to the pan.
