Scrambled Tofu with Cheese
Topping off a vegetarian scrambled tofu with cheese can help you in the transition period, if eating foods like tofu are new to you, and you're not certain you'll like it. On the other hand, if you're already a seasoned vegan, try this easy scrambled tofu using soy cheese instead of regular cheese. This recipe serves 4-5 people, so if you're cooking for fewer, you may want to halve it.
