00:06 that is fantastic. It's actually called
00:08 festive scrambled tofu. Oh! Sounds good baby.
00:13 Let's look at the ingredients on this one
00:16 It calls for:
00:45 All right, Scrambled Tofu this is good,
00:49 this is years ago, this is good
00:50 but this is a different one, because this one
00:51 is actually a festive, it's festive, which means they
00:54 have a lot more color in it. Okay.
00:55 I mean I have it before the colors and stuff
00:57 within as well, but this one really
00:59 has some really pretty colors you can already see.
01:01 I am going to have you go ahead on

01:04 slice those red peppers up and then the green.
01:08 Dice it up for me. Yeah, you can dice it,

01:11 And I am going to just in the mean while
01:12 I am going to go ahead and mash up
01:14 this Tofu. Get it ready.
01:16 How long have you been working with Tofu honey,
01:18 it has some time hasn't it.
01:19 Umh for a long, long time
01:21 and you know because soy is so versatile
01:23 and it has no flavor and so therefore picks up
01:26 the flavor of whatever it's next to.
01:27 Which is a good thing. Which is a very good thing.
01:29 Want me to dice up the. Dice it up too
01:31 yes and then you can, you can go ahead
01:32 and get the stove ready to. I got the margarine already
01:35 melting there in the skillet. Okay. Okay.
01:45 Scrambled Tofu, this is one of the things
01:47 that a lot of people will start
01:49 when they learn how to cook with Tofu
01:51 one of the easier things to do.
01:56 Okay. Okay.
01:58 I'm ready. Let's see if it's one..
01:59 It's not on, you smell it. Okay, still not turned on
02:03 There you go, how about that. Umh. Okay.
02:07 Okay, and we're going to go ahead and I'm going to
02:09 real quickly do the onion also in this
02:12 it's got all the goodies.
02:16 Easy breakfast ideas. And while I am doing
02:20 this one, oh-oh! Oh-oh! Oh-oh! No biggy
02:27 I'm going to go ahead and put those all in.
02:33 You want me to go ahead and. Oh! Look at those colors.
02:37 stir that around a little bit. with a fork,
02:38 which are special
02:43 Okay, we're gonna sauté that a little bit
02:45 I like that margarine in there, because
02:46 the margarine gets a different kind of a flavor there.
02:48 Yes, it does. Okay, and
02:57 I am going to go ahead on as we sauté that, you know,
03:01 it's up a little bit, I use sauté they told gets
03:04 a little bit translucent your onions
03:06 they're going to get a little translucent
03:08 and then what I to do is just take and move it
03:10 around in a skillet to give room for the Tofu.
03:14 Now talk about this Tofu. Now there is different
03:16 textures, you have firm, extra firm and soft.
03:20 And soft. Now what's. This one is a firm
03:22 This one is a firm yeah for the scrambled.
03:24 for Scrambled Tofu you want to use the firm.
03:26 The soft one is a little bit too soft for this okay.
03:28 Soft are like deserts and, cakes and for these.
03:30 Yes. So you want the firm.
03:32 Right. Okay.
03:33 We want to do to the firm. Then extra firm you want
03:35 that's for your meat. When you're doing meat loaves
03:37 and you're doing burgers you know those kind
03:39 of things you're going to actually use
03:40 that for that alright. Okay. Now what I wanna do
03:42 is I want to go ahead on and sprinkle on
03:44 the seasonings, because right now
