Fried Tofu with sweet potatoes
Fried Tofu with Sweet Potatoes is a delicious and cruelty free alternative to traditional scrambled eggs.
Many people struggle with cutting eggs from their diet because they are so versatile but it is worth doing . The egg industry has some very unacceptable practices and even if you do always buy free range, you cannot escape this fact. Tofu makes a great alternative and like eggs is an extremely versatile and nutritious food that can be cooked in many different ways.
Tofu has been a mainstay of some Asian cuisines for thousands of years but because it did not start showing up in the west until the 1960s some people mistakenly believe that it is a new invention especially for vegans and vegetarians.
Apparently tofu was actually first used about 2000 years ago in China and discovered when a cook accidentally curdled soy milk by adding seaweed, causing it to solidify. The things you learn on Google!!
Fried Tofu with sweet Potatoes is a great way to use up the leftovers in the fridge. Sweet potatoes are the base of the dish and you can just add your favourite veggies to the mix for your best flavours. I used chopped onion and kale and it tasted divine. However any little bits and bobs of left over veg that you like will probably work just as well.
