Scambles aren't just for breakfast! Shahzadi Devji shares a mouth-watering way to go plant-based for dinner tonight. 



Tofu Scramble

  • 350g extra firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 green chilli
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala


  • 1/3 cup cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon juice of lemon


For the Scramble

  1. Remove the excess water from the tofu. After that, dry it with a clean kitchen towel. In the meantime, prepare the other ingredients for the recipe.
  2. Using a fork, break up the tofu and set it aside.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add one tablespoon olive oil. Add the garlic, onion, and lightly brown them in a pan.
  4. Stir in the red pepper and sauté for a few minutes, if you prefer them crunchy. If you like them softer, cook for a further two minutes.
  5. Sprinkle the spices and salt over the red pepper mixture along with the chillies and stir gently.
  6. Now add the crumbled tofu to the pan and mix thoroughly. Cook for another about five minutes, allowing all the flavours to combine.

To Serve

  1. Garnish with lemon juice and cilantro.
  2. Best served whilst hot, with wholegrain toast, roti, quinoa, salad or potatoes. Enjoy!
