Ingredients

For the scrambled tofu

For the breakfast platter

Instructions

  • Bring a large non-stick skillet to a medium heat with canola oil. Crumble the block of tofu with your fingers and spread it evenly across the skillet. For the best browning, you want the tofu to have the most skillet contact possible. So don't overcrowd.
  • Let the tofu sit undisturbed on the skillet for about 4 minutes, until it's nice and toasty brown, and then stir the tofu. If it looks like it's getting too dark, lower the heat slightly. Let the tofu sit for another four minutes without moving, so that it can brown on that side as well.
  • Once it's nice and brown, sprinkle the following spices across the tofu: paprika, onion powder, cumin, ancho chili powder, and kala namak. Stir to evenly distribute the spices, and break up the tofu a little, so that it's evenly coated. (If the spices aren't sticking, add a small splash of water.)
  • Once the spices are evenly incorporated, add the nutritional yeast flakes, and incorporate it into the dish.
  • Serve with refried beans, breakfast potatoes, warmed tortillas, guacamole, and cilantro for garnish (optional).

Notes

*Super firm tofu in vacuum packaging doesn't need to be pressed before using. If you use water-packed tofu instead, you'll need to press it before starting this recipe.
**Kala namak can be found in Indian grocery stores or online. It's a sulfurous salt that adds an eggy flavor. If you don't like eggy flavors, use regular table salt instead.
