Tofu Scramble with Spinach
Tofu scramble with spinach - so nutritious and a perfect protein boost for breakfast for vegetarians and vegans. I love spinach, so eating it for breakfast in that classic vegan dish - tofu scramble - is only natural.

One reviewer suggested adding extra soy sauce into the mix to make this spinach and tofu scramble a bit more flavorful.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch spinach, rinsed
  • 1 pound firm or extra firm tofu, well pressed and crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Sautee tomatoes, garlic and mushrooms in olive oil for 2 to 3 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium low and add spinach, crumbled tofu, soy sauce and lemon juice. Cover and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Sprinkle with a dash of salt and pepper before serving.

Makes two servings.

Excellent dish, Guest Dwayne

This is a simple dish to make, and it is so delicious. I didn't have soy sauce so I substituted a little balsamic vinegar. And, I added some sliced tofurky sausage. I will definitely make it again!
