tofu scramble


what i love about tofu scramble is that it seems unhealthy, but it isn't! especially if you put the right stuff in it. to start with i use nasoya lite has less than half the calories and fat and has more calcium and vitamin d. i always add spinach, tomatoes, and nutritional yeast so you get your vitamin a, lycopene, b12 and a whole lot more. you can always add whatever you want that day: mushrooms, okra, asparagus, basil, veggie sausage. what a good way to start the day!

tofu scramble:
about 5 crimini mushrooms chopped 
bell pepper (fresh or frozen)
1 yellow onion
1 package nasoya lite tofu
1/2 c frozen or 1 c fresh spinach
1/4 c nutritional yeast
1 tbl tamari or soy sauce
a little tumeric
garlic powder
red pepper flakes
dried basil and oregano 
1 tomato

1. saute onion, mushroom and bell pepper. 
2. crumble in tofu, add everything aside from tomato. 
3. once everything is heated though (about 5-8 minutes) add tomato. cook until tomato is slightly soft.
