<Miwa’s tips> ※watch more on Video!
・Tofu will be crumbled as you cook it, so the chunks don't have to be so small when you add them into the pan.
・This scramble is delicious on top of rice or in a salad.
・Make sure to completely evaporate the liquid for a bold taste.
・Please use tamari soy sauce without gluten & MSG for a gluten free option.
<Recommended side dish>
Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
