Southwestern Tofu Scramble

Cooking crumbled firm tofu in a skillet approximates the fluffy texture of scrambled eggs in this vegetable-studded, vegetarian main dish. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Serve with steamed corn tortillas, some extra salsa and black beans.

Serves 4

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 14-ounce p firm water-packed tofu, rinsed and crumbled
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 small zucchini, diced
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup prepared salsa
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add tofu, chili powder, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until the tofu begins to brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

Step 2

Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add zucchini, corn, scallions and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables are just tender, about 3 minutes. Return the tofu to the pan and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat and stir in cheese until just melted. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons salsa and 1 tablespoon cilantro.
