Vegan Breakfast Idea: Tofu Scramble with Fresh Spinach and Sweet Peppers
I actually prefer my tofu scramble over traditional scrambled eggs. It's a lot lighter than eggs, less fat, but more importantly, it doesn't have that funky egg smell.
This recipe serves 1 or 2. If you eat it all, then it has a total of 4 Weight Watchers Points Plus. If you share it with someone, you can count it as 2 points.
Here's what you'll need:
8 oz of medium firm tofu, drained
2 sweet peppers, sliced
1 bunch of fresh spinach, washed well and chopped coarsely
1 tsp curry powder (for color and taste)
salt and pepper
Garlic powder (optional)
Spray a nonstick pan with Pam (or the like). Saute your sliced peppers and spinach until they're softened. Put your tofu on a flat plate and gently break it up with a fork. Add the tofu to the pan and stir, getting it all nice and warm. Add the seasonings and the curry powder, stirring gently to mix thoroughly. NOTE: Because of tofu's texture, you don't want to aggressively "stir". Instead, gently turn it over on itself with a spatula. You may want to cover it and just steam it to get it nice and hot. I like adding a little hot sauce. Serve as you would scrambled eggs....with toast, fruit, coffee...etc. Enjoy!
I actually have these Orgreenic pans and love them. They truly are nonstick and work really well.
