I created this recipe over a decade ago. I was in college, and it was the first time I ever had tofu. I wanted to eat tofu and be earthy like all my cool vegetarian friends. Well, the vegetarian diet may not have stuck with me, but this recipe is still popular with my family! —Jennifer Garcia, Franklin, Massachusetts

Ingredients

  • 1 package (9 ounces) fresh spinach (about 10 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2/3 pound firm tofu, drained and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped kalamata olives
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Optional: Grated lemon zest and diced tomatoes

Directions

  1. Place spinach and 1 tablespoon water in a large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until spinach is wilted, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a colander; drain, pressing out as much liquid as possible. Coarsely chop spinach.
  2. In same skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add tofu, olives, lemon juice, oregano, pepper and spinach. Cook, stirring frequently, until heated through, 3-4 minutes. Add feta; cook until slightly melted. Serve immediately; sprinkle with lemon zest and tomatoes if desired.
Tofu Scramble Tips

Is tofu scramble vegan?

This version of tofu scramble isn’t vegan, but you can easily make it that way with a few modifications. Swap olive oil for the butter, and grab some dairy-free feta. There are a number of good options for dairy-free cheese on the market nowadays.

How should you crumble tofu?

When you come down to it, the best tool for the job is your fingers. Just grab the block of tofu, and start pulling it apart. You want pieces in various sizes, but nothing bigger than bite-sized.

How can you make tofu scramble your own?

This scrambled tofu isn’t for the faint of heart. Like a lot of Greek recipes, it’s got some powerful flavors, like olives, lemon juice, oregano and feta. If your tastebuds aren’t up for that early in the morning, you can swap them out for just about anything. Try some chopped tomatoes, fresh basil and grated Parmesan for an Italian flair. Or if you’re looking for something plain and simple, just saute the tofu in a little butter with some salt and pepper. Tofu doesn’t have a lot of flavor on its own, so it goes well with a lot of ingredients. Try your own variations, and when you find something you like, be sure to submit your creation.

What can you serve with tofu scramble?

This tofu scramble is hearty enough to get you going in the morning, but I like to add some fruit salad to really start my day off with a good portion of fruits and veggies. If you liked this recipe, be sure to check out more of our tofu recipes.
