Breakfast Bowl


This recipe can be easily made into a vegan dish by skipping the eggs or substituting them for Mexican scrambled Tofu, I have tried this substitute, and it was delicious!

Mexican Tofu Scramble

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces extra-firm organic tofu

  • 1 Tbsp organic olive oil

  • 2 tbsp medium red onion (thinly sliced)

  • 1/4 medium red bell pepper (thinly sliced)

  • 1 cups of Spinach roughly chopped or Kale (optional)

SAUCE

  • 1/4tsp celtic/himalayan salt

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/4 tsp chili powder

  • Water (to thin)

  • 1/4 tsp turmeric (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Pat tofu dry and roll in a clean, absorbent towel and place something heavy on top, such as a cast-iron skillet, for 15 minutes.

  2. While tofu is draining, prepare sauce by adding dry spices to a small bowl and adding enough water to make a pourable sauce. Set aside.

  3. Prep veggies and warm a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil and the onion and red pepper. Season with a pinch each salt and pepper and stir. Cook until softened – about 5 minutes. I

  4. In the meantime, unwrap tofu and use a fork to crumble into bite-sized pieces.

  5. Use a spatula to move the veggies to one side of the pan and add tofu. Sauté for 2 minutes, then add sauce, pouring it mostly over the tofu and a little over the veggies. Stir immediately, evenly distributing the sauce. Cook for another 5-7 minutes until tofu is slightly browned.
