Summer Tofu Scramble

*summer scrambled tofu

Another crazy hard crossfit workout this morning!!! Thrusters and GHD sit-ups – SO GOOD. Came home on a mission to eat and had two lovely heirloom tomatoes on the counter that were screaming to be used. I chopped them up and remembered I had both basil and arugala pesto in the fridge. Seeing as I used all of my miso paste up making the pesto, I used what I had left of the miso and supplemented with the arugala pesto AND OH MY GODDESS…..YUMNESSSSS!!!!

Summer Tofu Scramble

1 package (15oz) firm tofu, crumbled

2T coconut oil

1c fresh summer tomatoes- heirlooms are best- medium dice

½ medium onion, small dice

1/4c nutritional yeast- more if desired!

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2t ground turmeric

1/2t salt

1/4t black pepper

—

2t miso

1T prepared arugala or basil pesto

2T water- more if needed

Mix the miso paste with the water and set aside.

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 diced tomatoes and the crumbled tofu and sauté over medium heat, stirring frequently for 2-3 minutes, coating the tofu with the onion mixture.

 Mix the miso paste into the scramble, 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.

Simple Tofu Scramble

*Simple Tofu Scramble

Super simple after an intense Crossfit workout: 300 double unders, 10 Cleans (#83 pounds), 50 front squats (#83 pounds), and 60 tricep dips….WOOOF! I finished and about 45 minutes after I WAS HUNGRY!!! I usually add lots of veggies into my scramble but today I was just feeling SIMPLE and it was SO delicious….the miso lends a “cheesiness” that was just yummy. I ate my greens on the side and had whole grain toast with coconut oil spread on top, and a side of my home made Kombucha and I did not want for anything…..FRICKEN YUM.

BREAKFAST BURRITO

Heat up a tortilla directly over a flame or on the electric burner- 15 seconds each side. Place the heated tortilla on a plate. On the lower third of the tortilla, spoon in a 1/2c of the tofu scramble, leaving about a ½ inch to an inch, free of filling. You can add slices of vegan cheese on top of the tofu if you wish. Now roll up the bottom, and then fold over the right and left sides of the tortilla. Roll the whole tortilla, creating a pocket of tofu scramble. Serve with hot sauce.
