tofu scramble.

Tofu scramble is a staple. And theres a million ways to make it. My friends hosted a brunch a few weeks ago, and I brought this and it was a hit – my meat-eating friends didn’t even care that they were eating tofu. So I made this again on Christmas morning. As far as produce goes, its so verstatile – you can add what you have on hand or customize to your liking.  My go-to is carrots, garlic and spinach.  Red bell peppers are great in there – and I bet some black beans would be delicious too!

Extra Firm Tofu
Oil or cooking spray for frying:
Veggies of your choice: red onion, shaved carrots, spinach or kale, red bell pepper

SAUCE
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp chili powder

Make sure your tofu is pressed, and the water is drained out. Set aside.
Prep veggies and get your pan/skillet ready. Add the oil/spry and saute veggies – starting with onions and red bell pepper first (save shaved carrots and spinach for more towards the end). Add some salt and pepper to flavor

veggies. Add your tofu. Crumble it into the pan and sautee until starts to get a little brown. I like mine well done.
Mix your seasonings with a few teaspoons of water and add to the tofu and veggies.  Let it cook for a minute or so and then add the lighter veggies like the carrots and the spinach or kale. Cook for a few more minutes, then serve with some crusty toast and breakfast potatoes.
