southwest tofu scramble

Whenever my family is looking for a healthy hearty brunch option, we often make a tofu scramble- loaded with protein & veggies, you won't even miss the eggs

  • 1 block firm tofu- drained & pressed
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 soy chorizo sausage- chopped
  • Any vegetables you have in your kitchen- chopped
  • 1 Tbs. cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • a dash of salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp. Tabasco hot sauce (optional)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)

1.While the tofu is being squeezed, chop up the vegetables you have on hand- for example, we used onion, carrot, broccoli, red bell pepper & mushrooms, since that's what we found in the fridge
2. In a skillet, heat the olive oil & sauté the chorizo about 1 minute
3. Add all the chopped vegetables to the skillet & sauté until tender
4. Crumble the tofu with your fingers into the pan & season with all the spices & Tabasco
5. When the mixture is seasoned to your liking, sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top & let it get a bit melty before plating it up!

 Serve with a side of salsa & your mom's favorite, generic, frozen hash brown patty- yumm! :)
