  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 tablespoons diced red bell pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed and left to sit for 10 minutes
  • 16 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained and crumbled into small pieces

  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 corn tortillas, options
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced, optional

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper and sauté until onion is translucent, about 2 minutes. Stir in garlic; sauté for 30 seconds. Add tofu, then turmeric, cumin, salt and cayenne. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes.

2. Place tortillas, if using, on a baking sheet and bake until warmed through, about 5 minutes. (Or wrap tortillas in a tea towel and heat in microwave for 45 seconds.)

3. Serve scramble with warm tortillas, sliced avocado and salsa, if desired.

Good to Know

Stick to extra-firm tofu; firm, medium-firm, soft, or silken will fall apart.
