Makes 2

Directions

  1. In a saute pan over medium-high heat, add in oil, onions, mushrooms and bell pepper. Saute for about 5 minutes or until fragrant and tender.
  2. Prepare the tofu by draining it and patting it with 3-4 paper towels to absorb excess liquid.
  3. Add tofu block to the pan and using a spoon, break it up into smaller pieces.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and sprinkle garlic powder, tumeric, smoked paprika, cumin, salt and dried thyme over the tofu and stir until well combined.
  5. Continue stirring for 2-3 minutes more or until the tofu is heated through.
  6. Serve hot with a garnish of fresh chopped cilantro or parsley.
  7. Notes: If at all possible, choose organic tofu. Tofu is made from soy beans and buying organic means it will be non-GMO.
  8. This recipe makes two servings to spread out over two mornings or to share. Store your tofu scramble in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
