Ingredients

  • 13 oz. 375 g firm tofu
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ¾ cup 180 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. In a large, non-stick frying pan, break the tofu into bite-sized pieces. Don’t make the pieces too small, as they break down further while cooking.
  2. Over medium heat, stir in the turmeric and nutritional yeast, until well combined. Cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the almond milk and simmer for an additional 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the tofu becomes slightly creamy.
  4. Season to taste and serve garnished with chopped chives.

Serving suggestions

Serve the vegan tofu scramble with some vibrant veggies fried in coconut or avocado oil, for example, sliced tomatoes, baby spinach, red or green peppers, chopped kale, or asparagus. And of course, avocados work with anything.

Regarding soy

Products made from soy, like tofu, can provide a good source of protein for vegetarians and vegans who follow a low-carb diet.

While there has been some concern about the negative health effects of soy-based on studies in test tubes and animals, it's hard to find human studies showing anything but positive effects. A possible exception may be for people with thyroid issues, who may want to make sure to get enough iodine when consuming soy regularly. Good vegan sources of iodine include iodized salt or seaweed.

For people who choose to avoid animal products, the benefits of soy's protein seem to greatly outweigh any potential risks.

Keto: Dairy free #6

Following a healthy dairy-free diet doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself — and this week’s meal plan is proof of that.

On the menu, we have some spice-heavy keto dishes like our Sindhi-style lamb curry. Additionally, there are some quick and easy weeknight favorites such as our tasty tuna zoodle salad and chicken stir-fry.

While following this plan, if you’re not a big fan of certain ingredients, feel free to swap them. If, for example, you don’t enjoy eating lamb, you could always substitute it for chicken or beef.

The same goes for vegetables. If there’s something you don’t fancy, change it for another low-carb veggie. Check out our visual vegetable guide for more inspiration.

Get ready to enjoy some of our favorite keto meals while staying below 20 grams of net carbs per day.
