2 stalks celery, diced

1 package extra firm tofu, crumbled

2 Tbsp Scrambler Seasoning

Sprinkle of extra curry, to taste

A few dashes of hot sauce, to taste

How to Make It


1 Combine all ingredients for the seasoning mix and store in a covered jar.

2 Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

7 Continue cooking over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until tofu is rich in color and begins to turn golden brown.

8 If desired, season with an extra sprinkle of curry, hot sauce, and soy sauce.
