Editor’s Note: This healthy, plant-based recipe for tofu scramble has the same consistency and flavor as eggs, and it’s a great dish for breakfast or brunch. If you make this, it’s important to get organic soy products, including tofu, because almost all non-organic soybeans in the U.S. are genetically modified. Enjoy.
