Breakfast Tofu Scramble
Extra-firm tofu, when crumbled, has a scrambled egg texture and, when paired with turmeric, a bit of an egg-like flavor, without any added cholesterol.
Tofu is rich in plant-based protein and may even protect against certain types of cancer!
Makes 4 Servings
Add 1/4 c (60 mL) water to large saute pan. Once heated, add onion.
When the aroma releases from the onion and it starts to become translucent, add garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, add peppers and mushrooms and add more water if vegetables are sticking to the pan. Cook for about 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Crumble tofu with hands and add to pan along with turmeric, mixing well. Add cumin powder, pepper, and salt, then cook for another 4-6 minutes until everything is cooked through.
Serve with whole-grain toast or on a warm corn tortilla.
