  1. Step 1

    Place tofu onto a plate and place another plate on top. Set a 3- to 5-pound weight on top (a container filled with water works well). Press tofu for 20 to 30 minutes; drain and discard the accumulated liquid. Crumble tofu into 1/4-inch pieces.
  2. Step 2

    Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, scallions, and jalapeno; cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in crumbled tofu and red pepper flakes. Cover and cook until flavors blend, about 4 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Season the tofu mixture with salt and pepper. Stir in tomatoes and 3 tablespoons cilantro; cook and stir until tomatoes are just heated through, about 2 minutes. Spoon tofu scramble onto 2 plates; sprinkle queso fresco on top. Garnish with the remaining cilantro.
