A Bowl of Kindness

Tofu Scramble with Sauteed Vegetables 2One morning I didn’t have eggs in the refrigerator and I was really in the mood for a skillet.  I grew up eating skillets and my favorite combination is the vegetable skillet with breakfast potatoes, broccoli, onions, mushrooms, and bell peppers that are topped with melted cheddar cheese and scrambled eggs.  I eat this with a side of rye toast with salsa on top.  Best breakfast ever!

Any ways, I didn’t have eggs, but I did have a block of tofu. Vegans and lacto-vegetarians will often substitute tofu for eggs.  I think this meal is good to enjoy every now and then. It is easy-to-make, takes about 10 minutes, tasty, and gives your stomach a nice “break” from digesting harder ingredients like meats, dairy, and eggs.  There are spices and herbs to add color, flavor, and more nutrients to your body.  My Tofu Scramble and Sauteed Vegetables will leave you feeling good, light, and awake.

Tofu Scramble with Sautéed Vegetables
Ingredient List
¼ cup of Black Beans
½ a block of Firm or Extra Firm Tofu
½ Onion diced
1 teaspoon of Tarragon
1 teaspoon of Turmeric
2 Red Potatoes diced
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Handful of Baby Spinach
Nutritional Yeast (optional)
Salt and Pepper

Tofu Scramble with Sauteed Vegetables 3To make this dish begin by preparing the vegetables:

  • Rinse and drain BLACK BEANS and put them in a mixing bowl
  • Drizzle EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL on top
  • Mix ingredients

In a separate mixing bowl:

  • Add TOFU and break apart with your fingers to create a scramble egg-like consistency
  • Cover with TURMERIC and TARRAGON and use a spoon to gently mix ingredients
    • I recommend using a spoon because turmeric will stain your fingers

Bring a skillet, or flat pan, to medium high heat:

  • Add in the mixed vegetables and let them saute until the onions become translucent
    • Stir occasionally so the ingredients cook evenly and avoid burning
    • Lower the heat to medium if you feel the skillet is getting too hot
  • Then add in the bowl of tofu
  • Add SALT and PEPPER to taste
  • Mix ingredients again

Serve immediately and enjoy!  

Optional: Add NUTRITIONAL YEAST on top more nutrients and flavor by sprinkling
