Mediterranean Tofu Scramble (Vegan & Gluten Free)

This Mediterranean Tofu Scramble is the second tofu scramble in my series, check out my first recipe here: Asparagus and Artichoke Tofu Scramble. I loved the flavors of the kalamata olives, balsamic vinegar, shallots, garlic, tomatoes, and spinach. However, the scramble needed something, and since the ingredients would be awesome on a slice of gluten-free toast – I reached for the Wildree Bruschetta Blend that I had in my spice cabinet. The spice blend contains Organic Onion, Organic Tomato, Sea Salt, Organic Garlic, Organic Basil, Organic Parsley, and Organic Black Pepper. It perfected the dish!

My neighbor, Teri, sold me the Wildtree products. Wildtree has updated their spices to be certified gluten-free. They are also certified GMO free and organic and do not contain MSG, dye, or preservatives. Some of the other blends and dressings do contain a low amount of sugar though, so read your labels if that is important to you. I did a freezer meal workshop with Teri before going vegan. If you are not vegan or vegetarian, the workshops are easy ways to have meat prepared and ready to go. Anyway, I’ve been experimenting with how to use my spice kit that I purchased with veggie recipes. They have been the key in adding pizazz to my veggies, and I’ve been making some yummy dishes to share. You can order Wildtree products here. This Mediterranean Tofu Scramble turned out delicious, and it’s healthy and easy!

Tips: (1) Drain the tofu before using it. (2) Extra firm tofu works best if you want chunks like a stir-fry, but the softer tofu, creates more of a soft scrambled egg consistency. However, the softer tofu has a tendency to stick to the pan, requires more oil, and is more wet.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz organic and gluten-free tofu (I used soft)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 2 handfuls of kalamata olives sliced in half
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup baby tomatoes sliced in half
  • 1/4 teaspoon Wildtree Bruschetta Blend (or another gluten-free bruschetta spice)
  • salt & pepper (to taste)


Directions

  1. Finely chop the shallot, mince the garlic, and slice the baby tomatoes and olives in half.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil on medium-high heat in a large pan.
  3. Add the spinach, shallots, garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
  4. Add the tomatoes and balsamic vinegar, and sauté for 1 minute.
  5. Drain the tofu and slice it into chunks.
  6. Add the tofu to the pan along with the kalamata olives, and then sauté for 3 minutes.
  7. Add Wildtree Bruschetta Blend (or another bruschetta seasoning) - you can buy the Wildtree Bruschetta Blend here.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste (I did 5 grinds on a pepper grinder).
  9. Serve and enjoy! It's great with a slice of gluten-free toast!

    This looks really tasty! I love throwing lots of veggies into a scramble and that brushetta blend sounds amazing! Wonder if we have anything like that over here!

      I’m sure there is a Bruschetta Spice Blend there. I actually have never heard about it until I bought this Wildtree kit, but I googled it and there were several here at my local grocery. I actually added it tonight to my spaghetti sauce and it was awesome. I would have never thought!

    Wow this looks fab! I honestly was never a big fan of tofu until my vegetarian friend cooked it up for me, I can’t remember now what she did to it (was years ago!) but it turned out amazing. I may just give this one a shot… you’ve inspired me!!

    • My Real Dish says:

      I was never either. It really doesn’t have much flavor, so it is all about what spices and sauces you use because it takes on the taste of whatever you put with it! I use it as tasteless protein in smoothies. My kids don’t know. It is the texture of yogurt.

  3. I love Tofu! I usually have it fried and so I haven’t tried it like this before! This is definitely something new I’d love to try and will add this to my meal planner!

    Looks yummy! I can’t cook, I’m afraid of messing up or burning the house down haha. I’ll save this for future reference though, i’m going to try to learn.
