Tofu scramble is one of my favorite quick and protein-rich vegan foods. This Asian style tofu scramble is very flavourful, so green and rich! I love Asian cuisine and that is why I decided to combine a good classic vegetable stir-fry and tofu scramble in one dish! Tofu tends to absorb the flavors so well and when we combine the tamari sauce, miso paste with the fresh garlic, ginger and saute all that with the tofu, it infuses the rich flavor and has the texture, very similar to scrambled eggs.
Key Points of this Asian Style Tofu Scramble
To get the right soft, slightly fried on the outside texture of the scambled tofu, it is important that you don’t overcook it. Considering the fact, that tofu is a ready-to-eat product, it doesn’t need a long cooking time anyway. All we need to do is only to heat it up and slightly stir-fry in a pan so that it infuses all the flavors. When we lower the heat and close the lid at the end of the cooking process, the tofu becomes even softer and the green beans have enough time to get cooked. They still stay very crunchy though.
I love to keep my tofu scrambles green. bright, nutritious and healthy! Contributing to the Asian style of the dish, green beans, and shiitake mushrooms fit so well in the dish. Along with the miso paste, shiitake add that umami flavor, which all the Asian dishes are known for. However, instead of shiitake, you can add any mushrooms of your choice, instead of spinach, you can add kale or other leafy greens. The garlic and ginger are the must as they are a base of this Asian style tofu scramble.
The main species of this dish are turmeric, coriander and miso paste along with Tamai sauce. They are the base of this dish. Additionally, feel free to add other your favorite spices, it can be dried herbs, kala namak black salt, which adds the egg-like flavor or seeds like cumin or fenugreek.
Serve the tofu scramble with some sesame seeds to add the crunch and support the overall Asian vibe of the dish and enjoy it!
