Southwestern Tofu Scramble with Black Beans

Southwestern Tofu Scramble with Black Beans

This week, I was trying to figure out the best way to use this block of tofu I had sitting in my fridge, since I had no other Asian ingredients to go along with it! And then it hit me: make a tofu scramble.

Back in the day, the husband was skeptical of tofu "scrambles" because he thought the tofu was too "mushy," and wouldn't taste food. Fast forward over 10 years later and when I told him I was making a tofu scramble, he said, "Oh nice! Sounds good." How times have changed 🙂

Southwestern Tofu Scramble with Black Beans

This scramble is super healthy, packed with protein and fiber from the black beans, tofu and veggies; but it also tastes like a delicious, spicy taco or wrap filling. Layla called it "enchiladas" haha! You can use this scramble in so many ways - you just have to add cheese and salsa!:

  • As a topping for nachos
  • As a filling for tacos
  • As a filling for a wrap
  • Or just on its own topped with shredded cheese!
