Fennel and Pear Tofu Scramble (Vegan & Gluten Free)

This is my fourth dish in my tofu scramble series. I like pushing flavor combinations; throwing things together that I would never think would work, but then they taste great! I had fennel in my fridge, and needed to use it up. The fennel adds a light bright taste, and balances well with the sweet pear and the warm allspice. This is a great dish when you want something healthy and quick to eat in the morning.

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

  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 1 small pear
  • 1 large shallot
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 10 oz tofu (I used House Foods Organic Super Firm)


Directions

  1. Wash fennel and pear (I used Thieves Fruit & Veggie Spray).
  2. Chop fennel bulb, shallot, and pear.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium high heat.
  4. Sauté fennel and shallot until slightly tender (~5 minutes).
  5. Drain tofu, slice it in the container with a knife, and add it to the pan.
  6. Continue to sauté until the fennel and shallot are tender, but not mushy (~ 2 – 3 minutes).
  7. Turn on heat.
  8. Add chopped pear, almonds, allspice, maple syrup and stir until pear is warm.
  9. Salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve and enjoy!

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!
