This was my breakfast this morning and it was quite delightful - I will be having this again tomorrow morning. I was inspired by this recipe and did my own twist. I didn't take pictures because I made this before work this morning and didn't really have time since I was getting ready between the steps.
I really like sauteed spinach so I used that for some greens and left the beans out. I changed up the spices today as well but will be trying the above spices in tomorrow's version. This makes one large serving or 2 smaller servings. This was my post workout meal so I ate the whole thing :D
- 1 T oil
- 1/4 c chopped onion
- 1 clove of garlic
- half medium tomato, chopped into large chunks
- 3/4 c sliced mushrooms (I used cremini)
- half bell pepper, any color, chopped into bite size chunks
- 1/4 pkg of extra firm tofu, crumbled
- large handful of spinach
- 1/4 tsp tumeric
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp cumin powder
- 1/4 tsp coriander powder
Heat a pan to medium heat, add the oil and put onions and garlic in the pan. While the onions are browning prep the tofu: cut the amount off that you're using and pat and press with a paper towel. You can put a heavy plate or dish if you want it drier.
Lower the heat if needed; my pans hold heat very well so I often have to lower the heat to low-medium. Once the onions start browning add the mushrooms, tomatoes, and peppers, and crumble the tofu into the pan. Add salt and pepper, stir and cover with a lid. Let it steam for 3-4 minutes and then add spinach. Give it another stir and cover with lid for 1-2 minutes to wilt the spinach.
Add the spices, stir, and let cook for a minute so everything can marry and become tasty. Serve with toast or whatever you would normally eat with scramby eggs*. (*Cable Guy reference)
This was super filling and kept me full for more than 3 hours until my first break at work.
