Southwestern Tofu Scramble

Southwestern Tofu Scramble

Serves 6

30 minutes or fewer

Ground turmeric gives this egg-free scramble a golden hue. Leftovers (if any) make a great sandwich filling.
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 small carrot, diced (about ½ cup)
  • 4 green onions, chopped (about ½ cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (about 1 tsp.)
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp. ground turmeric
  • 1 14-oz. pkg. medium tofu, drained and crumbled
  • ½ tsp. hot sauce
  • 2 Tbs. chopped cilantro
  • salsa, for garnish

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Add bell pepper and carrot, and cook 7 minutes, or until just tender. Stir in green onions, garlic, cumin, and turmeric, and cook 1 minute more. Add tofu and hot sauce, and cook 5 minutes, or until heated through and all liquid has cooked off. Stir in cilantro, and serve with salsa.

Pretty good, I added more spices and salt and it turned out great. I premade a batch and froze portions to have for the week...worked out nicely!

Great recipe. I made it for dinner. We plan on eating the leftovers for lunch inside a pita with spinach, sprouts, and salsa! Thanks for the recipe:)

Use a non-stick pan! Do you know how toxic that coating is? Fumes from it when hot can kill pet birds!

Looks delish, can't wait to make and enjoy. Thank you

What could be used instead of tofu? I won't eat soy

Not quite enough on its own, but when topped with some cheddar and folded in a tortilla, it made for a delicious and extremely satisfying breakfast burrito. I might try adding some veggie sausage or soyrizo next go - I'll definitely be repeating this recipe, or some variation of it (it's an excellent "base" recipe for being creative)

Love, love, love this dish. Extremely easy to make and was filling. I used chopped fresh tomatoes instead of salsa. Taste was wonderful! I liked how the tumeric colored the tofu - looked just like scrambled eggs. This dish will be a regular breakfast dish!

Sounds and looks good, can't wait to try it!
