An incredible source of vegan protein, the combo of quinoa and tofu in a quick scramble makes it fast, easy, and satisfying. Perfect for after a bog workout- also the turmeric promotes healing and recovery- it is also an anti-inflammatory food.
Tofu Quinoa Broccoli Scramble
1/2 package (7.5 oz) firm tofu, crumbled
2T coconut oil
1c steamed quinoa
2c steamed or sautéed broccoli, small dice, stems and florets (you can quickly sauté the broccoli prior to the scramble in the same pan and remove and add later)
½ medium onion, small dice
1/4c nutritional yeast- more if desired!
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2t ground turmeric
1/4t black pepper
1T prepared arugala or basil pesto
In a heated skillet or fry pan over medium high heat, heat up the oil and add the onion, garlic, turmeric, salt, black pepper and sauté until aromatic and golden.
Add the crumbled tofu and sauté over medium heat, stirring frequently for 2-3 minutes, coating the tofu with the onion mixture.
Add the quinoa and work the mixture with a wooden spoon to incorporate it all.
Mix in the diced broccoli just until heated through then add the pesto. Sprinkle in the nutritional yeast and mix until well incorporated.
Serve immediately with toast or in a breakfast tofu burrito, sprinkled with additional nutritional yeast.
I like mine with fermented hot sauce!!
