I know that the blog is called “NOT JUST TOFU” but I don’t want to overlook this great ingredient, tofu.  So far all of my recipes have been for lunch or dinner but what about breakfast?  So you decided not to eat eggs or milk which means that cereal and omelettes are no longer a part of your diet.  Today is your lucky day; I am going to share with you the best tofu scramble recipe I have ever thought of.  Just thinking about it makes me go YUM!
