Scrambling and Camping

Tofu scrambles is the ultimate easy vegan cooked breakfast.  Even more so when you are camping.  We always have in our camping ‘larder’ a couple of packs of long life firm silken tofu.  We also have our handy stash of herbs and spices stored in old 35mm film canisters, a little nutritional yeast, bouillon powder and either Braggs or soya sauce.  So as long as we can buy an onion and a few mushrooms (and any additional vegetables we fancy adding) we are good for at least a couple of scrambles during a camping trip. 
This year in Portugal we are delighted to see more tofu and seitan products in the chilled section with the vegetables at the supermarket local to our campsite.  We were even more delighted to find blocks of tofu with big chunks of seaweed in it and at a really good price (€2.50 approx).  It makes for a lovely tofu scrambles and we have been enjoying it quite frequently this trip without even touching the tofu supply we brought from the UK.
I know of no vegans who haven’t got their own version of tofu scrambles, but here is an idea of ours whether you are camping or not!
Scrambles for two
Oil or water for cooking
1 onion sliced
½ teaspoon of turmeric
6 mushrooms sliced
2 sticks celery sliced (optional)
Pumpkins seeds (optional)
1 level teaspoon of vegan bouillon
1 block of whatever tofu you fancy or can find
1 teaspoon of Braggs for soya sauce
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast powder

Fry the onion in oil (or just use a little water instead as it still tastes as good) until translucent.
Add the turmeric and give it 30 seconds.
Add mushrooms and any other vegetables or seeds you might fancy (e.g. celery and pumpkins seeds).
When the veg starts to soften, add in the bouillon and cook for a couple of minutes.
Mash up the tofu and add and cook for about 4 minutes, stirring to mix everything together well.
Add in the nutritional yeast, stir to mix and cook for a couple of minutes.
Add in the Braggs or soya sauce and stir.
Serve whilst hot. 

We just have ours on toast normally as we have a little grill on our camping stove but it would be nice in wraps too.  Enjoy!
