Jen's Famous Tofu Scramble :: If you are a new vegan, I'm going to toot my horn and say this is a pretty kick ass tofu scramble recipe. \n\n\n\nIf you are a veteran then you know there are a lot of tofu scrambles out there.\n\n\n\nYes, I have been around the block with these scrambles. What makes mine different is the balance of the flavors and the most important ingredient, Black Salt. AKA Indian Kala Namak.\n\n\n\nWhy Kala Namak?\n\n\n\nAs a vegan, I'm very aware that we can come up with some great recipes with very interesting and sometimes hard to find ingredients. \n\n\n\nWhile my spice collection has gone from salt, pepper & garlic powder to over 20 different ones, I generally try to use common ingredients in my cooking.\n\n\n\nUnfortunately, Kala Namak, better known as Black Salt, is harder to find. In fact, my local grocers do not carry it so I order from Amazon. Check with your international grocery stores if you prefer to not order. \n\n\n\nWhy do we use Black Salt? To make it simple, black salt has the sulfur smell and taste that eggs provide. \n\n\n\nTo further explain, I am using the description from the company I purchase my salt from,\n\n\n\nis also known as kala namak, sanchal, kala loon or black lava salt. Naturally derived from volcanic mines in Northern India and Pakistan and surrounding salt lakes, black salt has been a staple in South Asian diets for centuries....Himalayan black salt is the perfect flavor substitute for vegans who love the taste of eggs and is also a key source of iron and other minerals...Indian black salt has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine because of its benefits. Lower in sodium and containing 94 trace minerals, black salt is a healthier alternative to regular table salt. A cooling spice, black salt has an alkalizing effect on the body, helping to alleviate digestive issues like heartburn.The Spice Lab\n\n\n\nIf you're still asking if you need this salt, my answer is yes.
