Recipe by Julesong

Tofu is a wonderfully versatile food! I make tofu "egg salad" fairly often, and it's delicious. So scrambled tofu on toast makes perfect sense to me. :)

This was pretty good. I used basil and added a little onion and garlic. There was something in it that I didn't care for - I think maybe too much basil. Next time I'll try less basil and more onion and garlic. Thanks for a good starting recipe. I liked that it was yellow like scrambled eggs.
