Southwest Tofu Scramble

If you are trying to eat plant based for the new year, a tofu scramble is a great alternative to eggs!  It is still packed with protein, but contains no cholesterol unlike eggs.  This is really easy to make, and although this one is flavored with southwest veggies, feel free to switch the veggies up according to what you have on hand or prefer!

  1. Combine the nutritional yeast, cumin, chili powder, paprika, turmeric, chipotle, black pepper and sea salt in a small bowl.  Whisk in 2 Tbsp filtered water until combined.
  2. Heat a pan over medium heat with the olive oil in it. Add the garlic, bell peppers and onions, and sautee for about 5 minutes until softened, then add the tofu, and cook for about 8-10 minutes, stirring every so often so it doesn’t burn. Add the spice mixture and stir to coat the tofu and veggies.
  3. Cook for 3 minutes more, then remove from the heat and serve!
