Recipe: Scrambled Tofu Aux Fines Herbes (Vegetarian/Vegan)

Tofu, also known as soya bean curd is a good source of protein and calcium, with low calorie count, low fat, and no cholesterol.

I had some leftover silken tofu after making a tofu cheesecake and when I was browsing one of my health cookbooks, I came across a recipe for tofu omelette. I've not made many "Western" dishes with tofu before, so thought it would be an interesting recipe to try. Unfortunately, it didn't quite work out and I ended up with scrambled tofu with herbs. However, tastewise it was pretty good (rich and creamy), so not quite a misfortune afterall.

This makes a good and quick vegetarian/vegan lunch, and kept me full and going for 4 hours. I had some tobiko (fish roe) left in the fridge so I topped a spoonful of this on my scrambled tofu but you can by all means omit it to keep it vegetarian.
