Tofu is an inexpensive, high-protein, low-fat food that deserves a place at your table. This easy scramble delivers 23% of your daily iron requirement on top of being a savory, hearty breakfast with a generous serving of vegetables on every plate. Since vegetarian sources of iron aren’t as well absorbed as meat sources, add a source of vitamin C like a bell pepper to maximize absorption.
Tofu and Veggie Sausage Scramble With Turmeric
- 12 ounces (340g) firm nigari tofu, drained
- 1/4 cup (22g) rolled oats
- 1 cup (110g) shredded carrot
- 2 medium scallions, chopped
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 4 Morningstar Farms Breakfast Veggie Sausages, chopped
- 1 cup (149g) cherry tomato, halved
- 2 cups (60g) baby spinach, chopped
Drain the tofu and wrap in a thick kitchen towel. Press out excess water by placing a heavy pot on top for about 10 minutes. Unwrap and crumble the tofu into a large bowl. Add the oats and stir. Add the carrots, scallions and turmeric and mix well.
Coat a large, non-stick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Add the chopped sausages. Stir for 30 seconds or so, then add the tofu mixture and stir. Scrape and stir until the tofu is browned in spots, about 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes and stir for a minute, until softened and heated through. Add the spinach and stir just until wilted, then serve.
