Tofu Scramble Lettuce Wraps, Italian Style

Every once in a while, I like to make a tofu scramble for breakfast. By playing around with various spices and condiments, the possibilities to suit your palate are endless. Tofu scrambles are an excellent way to start your day with a protein-rich breakfast while remaining easy and quick to prepare. For this particular tofu scramble, you will need:

  1. 1 tbsp. olive oil, extra-virgin
  2. 1 cup leeks, thinly sliced
  3. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 1 lb firm tofu, crumbled into small pieces
  5. 1/2 cup tomato, diced
  6. 2 tsp. nutritional yeast
  7. 1 tbsp. organic shoyu (soy sauce)
  8. 1 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
  9. 2 tsp. fresh parsley, chopped
  10. sea salt, and black pepper to taste
  11. 4 lettuce leaves, rinsed and set aside on plates.

Directions: 

Place oil in a sauté pan on medium heat. Add leeks and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes. Add crumbled tofu. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring often. Add remaining ingredients (except fresh herbs), continuing to stir for another 5 minutes. Incorporate fresh herbs. Remove pan from heat and dish the tofu scramble into lettuce leaves. Eat with your hands!
