Tofu Scramble 6 servings

While potatoes are roasting, get tofu prepped and cook when potatoes are 5 minutes from cooked

What you need:
1 extra firm tofu
1 tsp of olive oil
1 tsp turmeric
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 clove garlic minced
1 cup of mushrooms chopped
2 handful of kale
salt and pepper to taste
half an avocado (optional)
sirracha (optional)

What to do:
1.      Press tofu between paper towels and add pressure with books or pans till excess water has released into paper towels
2.      Place tofu into bowl and mash using a fork till consistency is equivalent to scramble eggs 3.      Add oil to a pan over medium heat and add tofu, turmeric, paprika, garlic, kale, mushrooms, salt and pepper
4.      Stir till seasoning is even and allow tofu to cook for about 5-7 minutes
5.      Plate hash and add tofu scramble on top, add sirracha and avocado if desired

My favorite way to prepare enough to eat for breakfast over the next few days, leftovers let the seasoning settle and allow them take on the flavor more. It’s the perfect thing to get your day going.
