Tofu burji (scrambled tofu)

Of course you knew I had some tofu lying around after making them skewers… So I wanted to try something a bit common yet different and so I ended up scrambling them, much like scrambled eggs/paneer. Turns out, it came out great!
The normally bland tofu really took on the spices and tasted refreshingly different from it’s normal rubbery self. I’m not going to give a recipe here coz it’s just too darned simple. I’ve used 1 large onion, 1 mid-sized capsicum, green chilli and tomato each, 1 whole garlic and 3/4 slab of tofu sautéed in 1 spoon of grapeseed oil for the dish, spiced with salt a hint of garam masala and coloured with turmeric. And I garnished it with a dash of spring onion greens.
We had it by itself as a simple meal, served with a glass of red Chateâu Rochebelle ‘89. Perfect. What's more it's a wholesome protein powerhouse and with the least oil going into it makes for a light, filling and healthy dinner.

Bon Appétit!
