This is a quick and easy recipe that is adaptable for any flavor profile (mexican, indian, italian etc) When you live with an omnivore who loves eggs for breakfast like I do, you want to make something just as easy and that involves similar ingredients so that you can both enjoy a lovely Sunday brunch together. This is a great way to use up leftover veggies too!
1 package extra firm tofu, drained
2 Tbl olive oil
1/4 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh spinach
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
2 Tbl nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
In a large frying pan heat the oil over medium heat. Crumble the tofu into the hot oil and sprinkle with turmeric, salt,pepper, nutritional yeast, garlic powder and paprika. Toss and cook until the tofu dries out and begins to brown. Push the tofu to one side of the frying pan and add the onions and red peppers to the other side and toss until the veggies heat through. Mix tofu and veggies together and toss in the spinach. When spinach turns bright green, turn off the heat and serve while hot.
