1tbspwater(Just enough to mix the seasonings together into a "sauce")
In a large pan, saute the onions in vegetable broth for 5 minutes. Add the sliced mushrooms and diced red peppers. Cook for 10 minutes.
Push the cooked veggies to one side of the pan. Put the block of pressed and drained tofu on the other side of the pan and break it up into chunks using a wooden spatula. Saute for 2-3 minutes or until hot.
Put all of the seasonings into a small bowl and add just enough water to be able to whisk it together. Pour the mixture over the broken up tofu and toss until each piece is coated. Mix the veggies and tofu together.
Add the greens, cover the pan and cook for 5 minutes or until the greens have wilted. Serve hot, and top with green onions and hot sauce!
Pressing the tofu is a must, you have to drain the water out or you will end up with a squishy tofu scramble.
Use a tofu press instead of paper towels to quickly drain the water from the tofu with less mess.
When you break up the tofu, break it up into bigger and smaller chunks so there's a texture difference.
Try to add the spice mixture directly on the tofu, not the vegetables, so the tofu will absorb the turmeric powder for color and the other seasonings for flavor.
The turmeric is not for flavor, it's what gives the tofu scramble recipe it's vibrant yellow color. You can't taste it so don't skip it!
Use black salt to give your tofu scramble seasoning an egg-like flavor boost!
But if you don't use black salt, don't worry, it will still be delicious.
If you're using any vegetables that release a lot of water like mushrooms or spinach, make sure you drain the pan before you add the tofu or it will soak the liquid up and get mushy.
Store the leftover tofu scramble in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. You could also use the leftover tofu scramble as filling for breakfast burritos with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and hot sauce!
