Pot o’ Gold Scrambles

It was another rainy day here which meant another day where our heads were on a swivel for a rainbow.

It had us talking about the mythical pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, which made it the perfect day for this recipe from Raddish Kids!  The original was an egg-based scramble but the company suggested this fantastic vegan version.

Crumble 1 (1 pound) package firm tofu into a large bowl. Travis was impish and wanted to gobble the tofu plain – yup, I have a good vegan on my hands!

Pat dry with paper towels.

Sprinkle the tofu with 1/4 teaspoon turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and stir to combine.

Cut the stem from a head of broccoli, and divide the florets into small pieces. Travis liked tearing up the “tiny trees.” Chop 4 to 5 slices vegan ham (such as Lightlife).

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the broccoli and ham; cook for 3 minutes.

Add the tofu mixture and cook for a final 3 minutes. Thanks to the magic of turmeric, it really did look like our scramble was turning gold as it cooked! Sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded Daiya cheddar.

To finish our pots of gold, I divide the mixture evenly among 4 ramekins. Draw a rainbow on paper and you can delight your child when they come to the table!

As we dined, we talked about the origin of this myth, and also read the recipe’s feature on oven safety. This included a great suggestion to let kids practice opening and closing an oven when cold.

Travis was thrilled he got to do such a grown-up kitchen task!
