Add the tofu and use a spatula to break it up into small pieces
Then all you need to do is stuff the scrambled tofu into a tortilla, along with some other yummy add-ins like:
- I like to use peppers, but you can use any type of vegetables you like – carrots, courgette (zucchini), sweetcorn or mushrooms all work well.
