asian inspired scrambled tofu


I know scrambled tofu again, and again and again. I just thought I'd post it to give you some ideas.

1 water packed package of tofu (I like firm)
sesame oil
2 cloves of garlic (sliced, crushed whatever)
1 small onion (spanish or brown) diced
1 bunch of asparagus sliced
1 cup of diced mushroom
1 tsp of fresh grated ginger
a glug of soy sauce
a glug of maple syrup
2 tsp of chinese 5 spice (I think I used that much, as always go small, taste and if you want to add a bit more go for it!)

1. Drain the tofu and soak in fresh water. Drain.

2. Working batches, heat up the sesame oil and fry the ginger, garlic, onion and tofu until it all starts to brown. Put aside in a bowl.

3. Heat up some more sesame oil and fry up the mushrooms until they are cooked then add the asparagus, saute for about a minute before adding the tofu mixture back into the pan. Combine, then add soy sauce, maple syrup and Chinese 5 spice, stir in. Heat through, taste, add more seasoning if you think it needs it.

notes: I tried to keep the soy/maple combo light, this was for breakfast so I wanted the seasoning barely recognisable, make it heavier to taste or for a later in the day meal.



  1. Yum!! I think that every single time you post something I want to make it. Does it taste like the Tom Phat scrambled tofu? I really want to make my own that tastes that good.

  2. no where NEAR the tom phat scramble.. I dont know what kind of oils they use in theirs.. I would dearly like to!

    Glad to hear I'm inspiring you to cook or think about it! that's what its all about! xo

  3. Okay, definitely fantasising about this one. Maple syrup, soy, and 5 spice? Yes please.
