Tofu Scramble |Tofu Bhurji
We are in the third week of BM#57 and I will be cooking recipes from Food 52 for three days. When I looked up on the site for some recipes I knew I had to make something to use up my things in the fridge as I had to finish everything before Navratri.I had some tofu sitting in the fridge to be used .So I made this simple yet delicious and healthy tofu scramble .I served it with plain parathas for our lunch.We love paneer bhurji and I make it quite often ,but I have never tried it with Tofu.I did not tell them that it was tofu and they all ate it thinking if it was paneer.At last when I said it was tofu everyone was surprised and said they would have never guessed if I hadn’t told them.So I guess now I can replace the tofu with paneer every now and then.
The original recipe used Tahini and nutritional yeast, but I skipped those ingredients as I wasn’t sure if kiddo would like it or not.May be next time I will try a small batch with all the ingredients in the original recipe.
