Scrambled Tofu

A great recipe from Isa Chandra Moskowitz' book, Vegan with a Vengeance. The spice blend and lemon juice makes this explode with flavor! Isa says that if you don't have nutritional yeast on hand simply omit the water when cooking. Her cat Fizzle says, "Use a cast-iron pan so that you don't have to worry about scratching the pan to get all the good burnt bits." I use a non-stick pan, but am certainly willing to switch to the cast iron one once it's back in production at my house! Additionally, Isa says in its intro: "...feel free to add any finely chopped vegetables that you want to use up; add them when you add the mushrooms. Broccoli, zucchini, and cauliflower are all great contenders. The most important thig is that you get the texture right; you want it to be chunky. As you cook the tofu it will crumble more, so just break it into big chunks through your fingers right into the pan. This is a great tasting way to introduce a tofuphobe to the heavenly bean curd we all know and love."
