To-fooled You! Tofu & Veggie Scramble

Doesn’t this plate of breakfast deliciousness piled high on a toasted bagel look amazing? Whilst that’s definitely true, I must confess is that it’s scrambled tofu rather than eggs that I conjured up for brekkie this morning.

Tofu works really well as an egg or meat substitute and it’s a useful breakfast ingredient.  It’s a superb source of protein and contains amino acids which make up a large amount of our cells, muscles and tissue.

I used a gluten-free bagel for this breakfast but obviously the choice is yours.  Enjoy!
