Ingredients
  

  • 2 14 oz. blocks tofu 1 firm and 1 medium
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp black salt
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp vegetable bullion
  • ½ cup water

Optional

  • 2 cups Spinach roughly chopped
  • 2 Roma tomatoes chopped
  • ½ avocado sliced

Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl, combine the turmeric, black salt, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, vegetable bullion and water. Whisk together until there are no more lumps. If you have a blender, then put these ingredients into a blender, as you’ll want these ingredients to blend together and become a smooth liquid with no lumps. Set aside.
  • Next, dry the blocks of tofu with paper towels to get the extra moisture out.
  • Crumble the two blocks of tofu into a bowl by breaking up the tofu with your fingers.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper onto the tofu.
  • Heat a medium-sized frying pan to high heat. Dump in all of the crumbled tofu and the sauce mixture. You won’t need oil in the pan, since the tofu already has so much moisture, the oil isn’t necessary.
  • Stir to combine in the pan, and let the pan get hot enough so that the watery tofu mixture starts bubbling/simmering.
  • Continue to stir the tofu scramble and occasionally let it sit in the pan for another 10 minutes. During this time, the water will evaporate and the coloring will become more egg-like.
  • After 10 minutes, the tofu scramble will be done, and you can either serve it straight on a plate with some toast, or add the spinach and tomatoes into the pan at this time and sauté for another 5 minutes.
  • Serve and Enjoy!

Notes

You can replace the garlic powder with 1-2 cloves of minced garlic, if you want a more intense garlic flavor. Just make sure to sauté the minced garlic in a pan with 1 tbs. of oil before adding the crumbled tofu. You want the garlic to brown and become fragrant.
