Next time you’re putting together a tofu scramble, try using soy flour instead of tofu. One-quarter cup of the dry flour has 10 grams of protein, 10 % of the daily requirement for calcium, 25% for iron, 14% for phosphorus and 30% for magnesium. I find that very impressive for something that is also quite tasty.
In a small cereal bowl, take a couple tablespoons of soy flour and add equal parts water. Mix it well with a fork. Add two raw eggs and mix well. Add a tablespoon of salsa and scramble that in. Cover the bowl with a small plate and microwave it for three-and-a-half minutes. When done, drizzle soy sauce on it. Serve with whole-wheat toast and fresh avocado slices.

What’s the Taste Difference Between Real Cream Cheese and Fake Cream Cheese Made From Tofu? Honestly, when it comes to cheesecake… a big difference. I bought some Tofutti brand cream cheese before Thanksgiving because I wanted to make my award winning (brag, brag) Acorn Cheesecake and I thought it was time I tried making it dairy free. When I got the Tofutti cream cheese home I tasted it and was impressed with the flavor, thinking it would be perfect for the acorn onion dip I make. But it just didn’t cut it flavor wise for the cheesecake. It wasn’t bad, it just didn’t have the rich flavor of a real cheesecake. But I do look forward to trying Tofutti cream cheese to make my acorn-onion dip. That’s on the menu for the coming holiday!
