When it comes to breakfast, are you on team savory or team sweet?
Both? Me too.
And on those savory-mood-mornings, I usually go for something like this…
Here’s what I love about a good veggie-packed scramble – you can change up your veggie sitch every day that ends in “day.”
Kale, broccoli, sweet potato, cauliflower, jalapeno, zucchini…the possibilities and combinations are endless.
My other favorite thing about this recipe is that you can sauté your favorite veggies (like I did here), OR you can roast em’ (for a totally different experience), OR you can simply reheat some pre-prepped veggies that you have on hand.
Add your tofu, herbs and spices then scramble the whole shebang together and call it a (good) day.
Veggie Tofu Scramble
- ¼ cup red onion, chopped
- ½ cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
- ½ cup red pepper, sliced into strips
- ½ cup baby bella mushrooms, sliced
- ½ package firm tofu (about 7 oz)
- 2 cups spinach, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon turmeric
- Pat tofu dry and wrap in towel. Place heavy pan on top and let sit for 15 minutes to remove excess moisture.
- Meanwhile, prep veggies and heat skillet to medium heat. Once heated, add coconut oil, onion, and red pepper. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until slightly softened, about 2 minutes.
- Add mushrooms and cook until browned, 3 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
- Push veggies to one side of the skillet. Add crumbled tofu and sauté for 2 minutes, adding spices.
- Add spinach and tomatoes to the skillet and stir until combined. Cook for an additional 3 minutes.
And if you know me, you know that I place high importance on sides (like toast, tempeh bacon, breakfast potatoes) and toppings (think: hot sauce, chili flakes, guac, salsa)…so you just let your hair right down!
Not a breakfast person? That’s okay. You can eat this exact meal for lunch or dinner. Mixing and matching meals is perfectly acceptable and something I embrace…full-force.
So give this one a try, then be sure to let me know how you liked it AND/OR:
1// which veggies you used
2// how you topped and served it
3// was it breakfast, lunch or dinner
I’ll be waiting.
