Breakfast Scramble

As I scrambled this morning to get ready for work, my stomach rumbled, I decided I was hungry and thought of a deliciously healthy item that takes only minutes to prepare - Scrambled Tofu.  Not only is this a vegan dish, but you can boost this morning helping of protein by adding fresh vegetables along with oodles of flavor by adding some spice. 

Here is my special recipe just for you:

1 pound extra-firm tofu, drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup chopped colorful peppers (optional)
1 tsp ginger/garlic paste
1 tbsp oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp curry powder for flavor
Chopped cilantro to garnish

Preheat a pan over medium high heat. Saute the onion, tomato and peppers in oil until partially cooked, then add the ginger/garlic paste. Break the tofu apart into pieces and allow to cook with lid for some 3-4 minutes, stirring often. Add spices and cook for another minute. Garnish with cilantro.  Eat as is or with bread.
Play around with the choice of vegetables, you could add spinach or broccoli or peas and carrots, corn, beans, whatever takes your fancy.  Couple this with an orange and you are golden.
