    Q.1Is the Nutrions only for the scrambled tofu or is it also for the topping including the avocado ?

      Hi Mellih –

      For this recipe, we based the nutritional facts off of the tofu alone. Toppings are purely optional and they vary depending on what people choose to use and how much they add. You could completely leave off the avocado if desired! Or use salsa or another topping instead. :)
