Equipment

  • Chef knife
  • Tofu press
  • Frying pan

Ingredients
 

  • 1 brick firm or extra-firm tofu ($1.42)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil ($0.12)
  • ¼ medium red onion, finely diced ($0.06)
  • ½ medium red bell pepper, finely diced ($0.41)
  • 1 cup spinach, roughly chopped ($0.26)
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast ($0.74)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder ($0.02)
  • ¼ tsp turmeric ($0.01)
  • Sea salt & black pepper to taste ($0.02)

For serving optional

  • Salsa
  • Hot sauce
  • Avocado slices
  • Toast
  • Green onions
  • Cilantro

Instructions
 

  • To begin, press the brick of tofu wrapped in a clean tea towel between 2 hard surfaces with a heavy object on top. Set aside while you prep your veggies.
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan on medium. Then, add in diced onion and red bell pepper. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until onions are starting to turn translucent.
  • Next, add all spices to the pan and stir. With your hands, crumble the tofu straight into the pan (you should end up with smaller, bite-size pieces).
  • Stir to coat tofu pieces in the seasonings for about 1-2 minutes. Then, add in chopped spinach.
  • When the spinach has cooked (about 1 minute), remove your pan from the heat.
  • Serve tofu scramble with salsa, hot sauce, avocado or tomato slices, toast, and green onions or cilantro on top!

Notes

  • For best results use firm silken tofu as it produces the most "egg-like" consistency.
  • Feel free to add or substitute vegetables as this meal is extremely customizable. We also love adding mushrooms!
