VeganMoFo 03: Tofu Scramble with Parsnip

Tofu Parsnip Scramble

Parsnip is most often cooked in soups and gratin and less often in stir fries or sautés. I personally very much like the taste of sautéed parsnip.

If cooking time is kept short, I quite enjoy a more flavoursome fried taste with a reasonable level of intact nutrients.

Tofu Parsnip Scramble

There’s one thing I can never get enough of is scrambled tofu. And no MoFo would be complete with some delicious scramble tofu for a Saturday brunch!

I have long been tossing the idea of adding diced parsnip to my tofu scramble. I’m glad I tried because it was a well tasty brunch!

Ingredients (2 servings)

2 parsnips (diced)
1 block (250g) firm tofu
1 small red onion
3-4 green chilies, chopped
2 stems spring onions, finely chopped
1 salad tomato, diced
1 tablespoon black bean sauce
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon olive oil
Salt to taste

  • Heat oil in a non-stick fry pan. Add onions. Cook for a few minutes.
  • Add in parsnips. Cook for 3 minutes.
  • Coarsely mash tofu with a fork.
  • Add in the tofu. Stir and cook until tofu begins to lightly brown (about 10 minutes).
  • Add chilies and black bean sauce. Sprinkle with dried thyme.
  • Add diced tomatoes. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add salt.
I am so much enjoying
