When I was approached by WORLDFOODS to do a product review, I gladly accepted the opportunity as the products are totally up my alley. I use sauces very rarely but when I use one, it has to meet Olena’s standards. WORLDFOODS passed the test!

I tried all of them and were they ever fresh! For a nearest location near you click here.

To make this Thai Tofu and Egg Whites Scramble recipe, I chose Turmeric Lemon Grass Thai Marinade & Stir-fry.

This dish is gluten free, vegetarian and could be vegan if you replace egg whites with medium firm tofu.

Only 134 calories and 3 WW points+ per portion. Super simple dish and perfect for Meatless Mondays. Tofu is high in protein and by adding egg whites, you boost the protein content even more.

I will never get tired of mentioning – buy only organic tofu! It’s like leafy greens. It’s not the food to save money on. In the long run you will not win. Organic tofu costs approximately the same as regular one but is so much better for you. Costco sells a 3 pack for $8.

I used 2 packages of tofu and it was enough for dinner of 4-5 people. It’s better to make more and have leftovers. You can refrigerate this dish for up to 2 days.

I usually make tofu and egg whites with soy sauce but since I had this wonderful Thai marinade, I thought why not?!

I loved the consistency of the sauce – not too thick, not too runny. In the beginning, when I added the sauce to the skillet along with tofu, I thought it was too runny. But nope. Within 10 minutes, the tantalizing sweet sauce thickened and created a nice golden brown crust on the tofu cubes. And my house got filled with a sweet lemony smell.

The sauce is very mild and you don’t need much to get a flavourful dish. If you are really watching your sugar and sodium intake, a little bit of the sauce goes a long way. I added only 1/2 cup and it was enough.

So, I hope you enjoy the recipe and read below for the Giveaway entry rules.

Thai Tofu & Egg Whites Scramble

Thai Tofu & Egg Whites Scramble

Ingredients

  • 2 packages of extra firm tofu (350 g each), cubed
  • 1/2 cup Turmeric Lemongrass Thai Marinade
  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • Cooking spray

Directions

  1. Pat dry tofu with paper towel, cut into cubes approximately 1" x 1" size and place in a medium size bowl. Add 1/4 cup Turmeric Lemongrass Thai Marinade, mix gently just enough to coat each tofu cube and marinate in the fridge for at least 30 mins.
  2. Preheat skillet on medium-high, spray with cooking spray and add tofu. Make sure to scrape all the marinade off the walls of the bowl and add to the skillet. Panfry until all sides have golden brown crust, for about 10 mins. There will be a lot of sauce in the beginning but it will stick to the tofu.
  3. Reduce heat to medium, add egg whites to the skillet and panfry until egg whites are ready stirring continuously. Remove from heat.
  4. Add remaining 1/2 cup of the marinade and mix gently. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions. Serve warm. Keep refrigerated for up to 2 days.

    Hey! I tried this recipe, loved it! Quick & easy.. I hardly cook since I live alone. I’ve made it a few times now.. I have tweaked it a bit.. I cook up mushrooms, yellow bell pepper, spinach and my favorite ingredient is bean sprouts.. I definitely recommend adding those things (after you add the egg to the tofu) .. Also, while the tofu is cooking, I add some chili garlic sauce (I love spice and it mixes well with this sauce) anyways..thanks for the recipe, I love your website.. I live in Vancouver too.. loving this summer! Don’t want it to end..hope you are enjoying this weather too! :)
