Soy is one of the best foods that you can consume if you drown out all the negative reviews out there that originate from the meat and dairy industry you will realize that the real danger lies in drinking cows milk which contains a large amount of estrogen that has been linked to breast and prostate cancer.

Soybean is a bean people, it is a bean like kidney beans, white beans, black beans and lima beans, it contains soy proteins which has phytoestrogens(plant estrogen). These plant estrogens have been found to actually reduce your risk of breast cancer. Here is the research to prove it.

    Hi Michelle,

    Let me tell you — so far…THIS recipe is the ONLY WAY I will eat Tofu! It was AMAZING! My 10 year old daughter was going to use a potato masher, but watched your video, and decided to use her hands instead to mash the tofu (starting her off early :))!!! She followed your recipe to the “t” and it was fabulous!!! I served the scrambled tofu with your recipe for vegan breakfast skillet potatoes…everything was DELICIOUS!!! Thank you again for another winner!!!

    Just made this and loved it! I added black pepper, used less oil, and added some cherry tomatoes and bell pepper at the end, and it was great. Now I wish I had made scrambled tofu earlier -I can’t believe how easy it is to make. I’m going to take your suggestion and try black salt next time. Thank you for sharing!

    OMG you have to try this recipe, it is so delicious. I’m a mushroomaholic, I had some baby portobello’s which I cooked up with the tofu, I added a dash of pepper, to assimilate the turmeric, then piled it up on freshly toasted bread, just heaven. Thank you Michelle, for the awesome recipe.

      Thank, Michelle, for sharing… Question. Why the sesame oil? What does it add?

        You are welcome, it adds flavor that’s subtle but you can leave it out.
