Turmeric Scrambled Tofu

From Meatless Monday contributor, The Red, White and Green

Protein-packed, this hearty heart-healthy breakfast has turmeric – an anti-inflammatory which helps ward off Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis and cancer.

serves 2

1 tablespoon olive oil
12 onion, chopped
1 14 oz. package of firm or extra firm organic tofu
1 12 tablespoons curry powder (contains turmeric)
pinch of salt

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.

Add onions and cook 1-2 minutes until soft and translucent.

In the meantime, remove tofu from package and drain off any excess water (no need to press tofu; just blot lightly with a towel).

Crumble the block of tofu into the skillet with your hands, leaving some larger pieces for texture.

Add curry powder to skillet. With a wooden spoon, gently “scramble” tofu as you would eggs, until mixture is evenly yellow in color.

Turn heat down to medium low and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes, scrambling occasionally.

Add salt to taste.
