  • Try adding cilantro on top for more flavor.

Comments

I made the Tofu Scramble for dinner this evening...and we enjoyed it a lot! The prep was quick and easy. I had about 1 cup chopped cabbage so added that to the vegetables called for. I did add cumin and oregano. We used the scramble as a burrito filling with cooked and seasoned pinto beans. The leftovers should make a tasty breakfast!
