Healthy Vegan Breakfast Recipes to Start Your Day Right
Yield: 4 servings
1(14-ounce) block extra-firm tofu
1 tbsp tamari
2 tbsp olive oil
½ medium onion, diced
1 roma tomato, diced
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
½ cup spinach, roughly chopped
½ tsp ground turmeric
½ tsp ground cumin
Kosher salt and black pepper (to taste)
Cut the block of tofu in half. Pat both pieces dry and wrap in paper towels. Press the tofu by placing a cast-iron skillet or other heavy object on top of the wrapped tofu to remove excess moisture. Then cut into small blocks.
In a measuring cup or bowl, combine the soy sauce, turmeric, and cumin with 2 tablespoons water.
Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high. Add in the onions and cook until fragrant.
Add in the mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are lightly brown on both sides.
While the mushrooms are cooking, unwrap the tofu and season on all sides with salt and pepper.
Add the tofu blocks and cook until golden brown and crisp (about 6 minutes), flipping the tofu halfway through.
Lower the heat to medium. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, break up the tofu into chunks. Add the tomatoes, spinach, and the seasoning mixture. Cook, stirring and continuing to break up the tofu until the spinach is dark green and soft. Serve immediately.
