      This was great and easy to make. I used a lot less cheese (just personal taste), and used parsley instead of the cilantro. It looks nice on the plate and would be good for a vegetarian brunch or breakfast. Thanks for the recipe.

      This was really, really good. We rarely give 5 stars. We'd been trying various tofu scramble recipes but they all seemed heavy on the nutritional yeast, which DH didn't like. Now, about the tomatoes? Where are they? not that they were needed and might make it too watery if fresh ones were added. We also used a firm silken variety of tofu. I would be inclined to amend the recipe title and not go searching for something missing in the ingredient list. And our apologies to the true vegetarians out there, but we fried up a little chorizo sausage and then made this in the same pan. We just like tofu.
