Okay, so I know ‘tofu scramble’ is not the most appetizing sounding dish. But I have to say, if this picture from Heidi’s site doesn’t convince you to try it, then you are just crazy. The fennel, cranberries and pistachios are a really great match of flavors to the garam masala. Served with a side of sweet and regular potato chips and it was a very tasty and EASY dinner.
1 1/2 t. garam masala
1 red onion – sliced
1 fennel bulb – sliced
1/4 C. dried cranberries
1 package tofu – pressed of excess water and crumbled (Heidi calls for firm but I used soft and it was good.)
Heat a splash of oil in a big pot. Mix in the garam masala and quickly add the fennel and onion. Saute for about 5 minutes, longer if you have time to caramelize a bit. Stir in the cranberries and cook for about 30 seconds before adding the crumbled tofu. Season with salt and pepper and just before serving add the cilantro (I used the cilantro paste, which I don’t recommend) and pistachios.
Notes: Really really great flavor. I threw this together in 15 minutes.
Servings: 3 servings, or one normal serving and one GIANT serving, Chris sized
