Rustic Curry Tofu Scramble has a unique flavor that is deep and earthy from the blend of savory spices, but also has certain brightness due to the sweet spices in it

Recently,Paul and I went to The Lunch Room, a local vegan restaurant, for their tofu scramble. They are open Saturday morning for breakfast, and they serve brunch on Sundays. The Lunch Room began in Ann Arbor as a food truck, which quickly turned to one restaurant in popular Kerrytown, and a second restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor. The restaurant is always packed, and their food is fresh, well prepared, and incredibly delicious. They serve weekly specials during the week, selecting a theme such as Taco Night, or Sushi Night, while still serving their regular menu. Their baked goods are incredible, and although I don’t possess a sweet tooth, my husband is a regular at the dessert counter.

Every time I eat there, I try to savor every bite to envision the ingredients, so I can make it at home. It takes a few tries before I can figure it out, or maybe I just like it so much I tell Paul it takes a few tries (that’s how good it is).

The tofu scramble vegetables are easily detectible; its the seasonings that make the scramble different. Tofu’s porous consistency allows for it to absorb any flavors. Scrambles can be made in so many ways, I could probably make a different version every day for a month. Maybe I should try that challenge.

Today’s scramble was devoted to The Lunch Room. The last time I ate there, I tasted overtones of curry and cumin; a hint of warm spice but not spicy by any means. As I took notes on my napkin (yes, I do that), a waitress came over and confirmed my suspicions.

So, off to Kathy’s kitchen I went to try to duplicate my favorite scramble; mine without any added oil or fat. I chose to call it rustic because of its simplicity, yet savory flavors.
