    We tried this ages ago without the nutritional yeast, and I hated it. We tried this again today, with the yeast, making 3 batches, decreasing the amount of the yeast each time. It seems to us that 1 tsp. with 4 oz. of tofu works best. Also, we left out the water; silken is moist enough. Next time, we'll do this with the veggies.

    I didn't have silken tofu, so I used extra firm and drained it for about 30 minutes. I doubled the amount of onion and garlic powder and added some spike seasoning. I sauteed red and green bells, mushrooms along with green onions before adding the tofu to the skillet. I thought it was very good. A very nice substitute for eggs, for the vegans in the house. Oh ya, I added a dash of frank's hot sauce, which is good on so many things.

    I'm sorry, but this just wasn't good. I knew it wouldn't taste like eggs, thoes who said it does havn't eaten eggs in a long time, but I did expect alot more based on the reviews. This ended up in the trash as I couldn't get anyone to eat it. :-(

    I love this recipe! I made it with the suggested onion and mushroom and served it with toast. Yummy, I think that it tastes better than eggs. I will definately make it again although mine was not as yellow as the picture.
