As part of our batch cooking series, I bring to you . . . Tofu Scramble. My husband loves tofu scramble. Like in a major way. This is great make ahead food. It is perfect for breakfasts. It is yummy for lunch. It is even perfect for breakfast for dinner. Oh yeah, awesome for camping, and it heats up great on a camp stove or on a fire. The best part is that these babies freeze well. My tip is to wrap them in parchment paper instead of foil and then pop them in a freezer bag or freezer container. Then you can just pop them straight in the microwave and reheat them for about 45 seconds. Badda bing . . . breakfast is done.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Tofu Scramble for Batch Cooking ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2 blocks of Tofu (I use mori-nu firm, but any firm will do)
6 TBS. nutritional yeast
2 TBS spicy mustard
1 small onion diced (alt. 2 tsp. onion powder)
1 bell pepper (optional)
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cumin
6ish dashes of liquid smoke
1/2 tsp. turmeric
4 pinches black
salt veggies of choice (I generally use mushrooms, spinach, and tomatoes but anything on hand is good)
Salsa or hot sauce to taste
parchment paper or foil
Start with a medium to large sized sauté pan on medium heat. Dry (with no water or oil) sauté the onion and bell pepper until soft. Add in the tofu and crumble it. Add in the spices and stir to coat all the tofu. Add in your veggies of choice and cook until heated through. Once the mix is cooked through. Use a slotted spoon to place a spoonful down the center of your tortilla shell (we use fajita size flour shells, but corn shells work as well). Add salsa or hot sauce to taste. Wrap it up without tucking in the ends. Wrap the burritos in parchment paper or foil and place in a freezer safe bag or container.
To reheat, place the burrito in the microwave or in the stove. If microwaving remove from foil first (if using foil) and start with 45 seconds. If reheating for camping, use foil if reheating in a camp fire. If using a stove top, remove all wrapping and reheat in pan on stove top. Makes about 20 small burritos.
