Scrambled Looks Can Be Deceiving

In Little Red Riding Hood, the wolf was dressed like Granny...

In the Gospels, Jesus warns us that wolves can come in sheep's clothing...

In Snow White, the wicked witch appeared as an elderly lady selling apples...

In Ratatouille, everyone thought the boy was cooking but it was really a rat...

In my kitchen this morning...

... the wolf in egg's clothing was TOFU.

I can't say I'd recommend them piled on a plate. A better option would be wrapping the "scramble" in a tortilla with some refried beans and salsa.

It was worth a try. And if you want to duplicate the deception, here you go:


1/2 of a small onion, finely diced
a sprinkle (2 TBS?)of chopped bell pepper I had in the freezer
3 cloves of garlic, squished through the garlic press
1 TBS margarine
dash of salt
dash of pepper
1/2 a block of semi-firm tofu, drained & patted dry

1. Saute the onion & bell pepper in the margarine until soft. Add garlic and saute another 30 seconds.

2. Crumble the tofu into the pan and season with salt, pepper, and a few sprinkles of turmeric to make it yellow.

3. Let it saute a bit and pull if off the stove.

4. Decide what to do with your yellow scramble.

  1. My wife once cut tofu into sticks, then breaded and deep fried them like mozzarella. The kids devoured them!
