When I have time to make breakfast I love to make a tofu scramble. For years I have tried to perfect my recipe and although it changes from time to time the below recipe is what I tend to start with. I took the recipe from one of my favorite bloggers the Minimalist Baker and changed it a bit. The tofu scramble is a great breakfast to start your day, protein, fiber and vegetables!
Tofu Scramble Happiness
Serves about 2 or 1 person for two breakfasts!
6 oz extra firm organic tofu
1 tbsp coconut oil (about)
2-3 cups of organic spinach (frozen or fresh works!)
½ a purple onion (can sub with white onion)
½ red or yellow bell pepper
2 garlic cloves (or 7 whatever works for you 😜)
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ tsp turmeric
½ tsp mustard powder
1 tbsp of Nutritional Yeast (this is the one I LOVE because it doesn't have the synthetic folic acid)
-Take out tofu and dry by putting paper towel around it and putting something heavy on top in order to help liquid drain out (if you have time, let's be real, I don't always have time or patience to do this😉)
-While the tofu is drying out make a sauce by combining the mustard powder, turmeric, nutritional yeast and salt and pepper with a little bit of water or oil to make an almost pourable sauce
-After slicing the onion, mincing the garlic cloves and cubing the bell pepper add them to a pan with the coconut oil
-While this is going on cut the tofu and use a fork to crumble into small pieces.
-Take the tofu and mix it with the sauce created earlier and then put the tofu into the pan with the onion, garlic cloves and bell pepper.
