  • medium size skillet


  • 16 oz organic firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion approximately 1/3 of medium onion
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper approximately 1/2 a medium red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup mixed greens including spinach
  • 1 tsp black salt
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  • Drain out the fluid from the Tofu container. Dry your tofu by lightly patting the tofu with a clean paper towel for a moist "egg" texture. If you prefer dry scramble, pat dry several times.
  • Place tofu in a large mixing bowl. Using a masher, mash the tofu into small bits to a fine scramble.
  • Finely mince the onion.
  • Slice the bell pepper in half. Remove seeds. Take half the bell peppers and dice in to small pieces.
  • Slice mixed greens into thin strips by rolling the greens and then slicing.
  • Add 1/4 cup of water into the skillet and bring to a boil.
  • Sautee the onions until translucent.
  • Add Mashed Tofu and then add all the spices.
  • After 7 minutes, add the bell peppers and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Lastly, add the mixed greens and stir around. Turn off the stove after 1 minute of stirring to avoid overcooking.
