Looking for a quick, easy and filling breakfast? This combo is a great alternative to scrambled eggs and it is also super tasty and rich in protein.
For 1 portion you will need:
1/4 white or red onion, sliced
2 tsp frying oil, my favourite is deodorised coconut oil (high temperature stable, tasteless and adds a great texture
1 block of Nofu
80-100ml water or even better - oat milk. Oat milk will add extra creaminess to your meal
1 tbsp margarine (optional) - I usually skip this because I avoid hydrogenated fats but it does add that nice, buttery flavour and mouthfeel.
1/4 pack of Chikizo (45g)
To finish (optional):
1-2 slices of bread
In a small pan, fry the sliced onion with 2 tsp of oil.
Stir occasionally for a minimum of 2 minutes. Cook for longer if you want it to produce sweeter flavour and if you can be bothered standing by the pan for that long.
Add Nofu, break it into pieces and add water/oat milk.
Cook for around 1-2 minutes or until soft and all the is water absorbed. If you added too much liquid at the last step please do not worry! All of it will be soaked in by Nofu and you can always adjust this recipe to your own needs - sometimes I like my scrambled really soft and I add extra water/oat milk to it anyway.
Add Chikizo to the pan when Nofu is almost ready and stir. Even 30s of cooking will do - you are only heating it up. You could also do this in a separate pan. Frying Chikizo dry, or with a tiny amount of oil, will deliver a more crispy and defined finish.
In the meantime get your bread in the toaster and gather your garnishing ingredients.
Place your just toasted bread on the plate. Top with Nofu and Chikizo mix and add a few dollops of Garlic Sauce. Drizzle with Sriracha and finish with fresh basil leaves for this delicious start of the day!
