Make this vegan, gluten-free savory Turmeric Tofu Scramble with Greens recipe, filled with hearty greens, mushrooms and fabulous spices, as a plant-based alternative to scrambled eggs. You can get this breakfast tofu dish on the table in under 20 minutes.

  1. Remove tofu from package, and press it by wrapping it in paper towels and placing it between two plates with something heavy on top for 5 minutes, to allow extra liquid to drain off tofu. (Alternatively, you can use a tofu press—learn more here.)
  2. Place tofu in a bowl and separate it with your hands to achieve a crumbly texture. Mix in nutritional yeast, turmeric, smoked paprika, black pepper, salt (optional), and plant-based milk.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet and sauté green onions, garlic, and mushrooms for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add crumbled tofu, chopped greens, and sun-dried tomatoes and sauté just until greens start to wilt (about 2 minutes). Serve immediately. May serve with sliced avocados, if desired.
  5. Makes 6 servings (about ¾ cup each)
