Equipment

  • Chef knife
  • Cutting board
  • Skillet

Ingredients
 

  • 1 ½ tablespoon neutral vegetable oil ($0.17)
  • ½ medium white onion, diced ($0.12)
  • 1-2 fresh serrano chiles, seeded and minced ($0.02)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced ($0.08)
  • 2 large Roma tomatoes, diced ($0.32)
  • 3 tablespoon nutritional yeast ($0.72)
  • ¾ teaspoon turmeric ($0.02)
  • 2 teaspoon black or sea salt ($0.02)
  • 400 g firm tofu ($3.53)

To serve optional

Instructions
 

  • First, wrap the brick of tofu in a clean tea towel and press it between 2 hard surfaces with a heavy object on top. Set aside while you prepare the veggies.
  • Heat the oil in a pan on medium-low. Then, add in diced onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until they’re starting to turn translucent.
  • Next, add in the serrano chile and garlic. Sauté for 1 minute more, then add in the diced tomatoes, nutritional yeast, turmeric, and salt. Cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Using your hands, crumble the tofu straight into the pan (you should end up with medium-size pieces).
  • Stir to coat tofu pieces in the seasonings and continue cooking until heated through, about 2-4 minutes. Taste and adjust the salt to your preference.
  • Garnish your “eggs” with chopped cilantro and fresh serrano slices. For a heartier breakfast, serve this with a side of refried beans, corn tortillas or chips, or queso fresco. Enjoy!

Notes
