Tofu Scramble: 21 Day Fix Approved

You absolutely.. without a doubt.. HAVE to make this Tofu Scramble. I don't care if you're following the 21 Day Fix or not. I don't care if you're vegan/vegetarian or not. I don't care if you hate tofu. You're trying this recipe.

Step 1 Collect the ingredients.

+ Firm Tofu (non-GMO)
+ Red Bell Pepper
+ Garlic
+ Red Onion
+ Spinach
+ Nutritional Yeast
+ Turmeric
+ Garlic Salt
+ Vegetable Broth
+ Bragg's Liquid Aminos

Step 2 Start your engines*
Note *This step is optional

Step 3 Chop up one clove of garlic

Chopping up garlic just HAS to be the most fun. I love smashing it with the knife, and then peeling off it's skin. WHOA. That sounded way creepier than I intended it to... anywho.. you know you love it too. Don't lie.  Chop it into small pieces while your pan is heating on low/medium heat. 

Step 3 Time to get acquainted with Mr. Onion

Ain't he a beaut?!

Chop the onion up so that it will fill about 1/2 of your green container.

Then, spray your pan with coconut oil cooking spray.. 

Now it's time to marry the onions and the garlic together on low/medium heat. Don't be like me and throw them in on medium/high heat. The garlic will start to burn and you'll have to start over. Oops.. Wasn't me. Lets just say I have experience in setting off my smoke detector.. but it's okay. I promise you it will all work out just fine.

Step 4 Get your trusty, low-sodium veggie broth out and put a little-teeny-tiny-splash of broth in with the garlic and onion to help them along.

Keep stirring the garlic and onion around so it doesn't stick to the pan. Again.. you learn things in the kitchen. Things you can't seem to forget.

Step 5 Gather the nutritional yeast, garlic salt, and turmeric together

So.. now you're going to put 3 TBS nutritional yeast, 1 tsp turmeric, 2 pinches of garlic salt, and 3 TBS water into your magic bullet or blender... and blend that puppy up until it's mixed thoroughly.

Yep.. I really did just say that.. Yellow, the color of.. egg yolks, folks.

Moving along.

Step 6 Get your tofu ready..

Cut it into a nice little square so that it measures out to be 1 red container.

THEN -- this step is pretty important.. but of course I didn't take a picture of it, so I hope you're still reading along..

Sandwich the tofu between two paper towels and squish the tofu down as much as you can to get all the water out of it. When using firm tofu, it's nice because it has less water content, but you still need to squish the water out of it. Repeat this process if necessary. 

Now comes the fun part.

Step 7 Crumble the tofu into the pan so it looks like scrambled eggs.

Yes.. I AM aware of how un-appetizing this looks at this very moment in time, but have faith. I promise you I'll deliver..

Results that is.

Not the actual tofu scramble to your doorstep.
That might be kind of difficult.
Really awesome.
But really difficult.

Step 8 Add the spinach and your red bell pepper at the very end of the cooking process

Add these two ingredients at the end so they maintain most of their nutrients. The longer you cook vegetables, the more it depletes their nutrients. 

The spinach and the bell pepper combined should measure out to one-half of a green container.

Step 9 Put it in a bowl.. or plate.. whichever you prefer

Once the spinach is wilted a bit, it's time to plate your food up. Or in my case, bowl it up. 

Step 10 Top with some liquid aminos (Bragg's or Coconut Aminos are my go-tos!)

Bam! You're all done! Eat up and enjoy :) I know you will!
