Scrambled Eggs ~ Western Style!

As a runner, one of my favorite breakfast meals is scrambled egg whites with spinach, onions and mushrooms with a few spices to add some zing! It's a power meal for me. My hubby, though, tries to stay completely away from animal protein so the recipe can be substituted using tofu in place of the eggs.

Ingredients

1 16-ounce package firm tofu (OR four eggs beaten)

1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup diced white onion

3/4 cup finely chopped red pepper

1/2 cup finely chopped jalapeño pepper (or other pepper of your choice)

1/4 tsp coriander


1/2 tsp cumin


1/2 tsp of fresh minced garlic OR 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Ground black pepper and kosher salt to taste

1 1/4 tsp ground turmeric


3 TBSP chopped green onions (about 2)

1/2 cup each of sliced mushrooms and spinach ( optional)

cheddar cheese or cheese substitute ( just a pinch!!)

1/2 avocado, sliced

Directions

Remove the tofu from its package and place tofu between 2 plates. Press to remove excess moisture. Place tofu in a medium bowl and mash well using a fork so you get a crumbly consistency. (If using eggs, gently beat 4 eggs together in medium bowl until yolks are broken up and mixed well).

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and peppers and cook until soft, 3-4 minutes. Stir if needed to prevent sticking.

Sprinkle vegetables with the coriander, cumin, garlic and salt and continue cooking until just incorporated and fragrant, 1 minute or so. Pour in the mashed tofu or egg mixture and add the turmeric along with 2 tablespoons water (eliminate water if using eggs), and cook until the mixture is warmed completely, 1-2 minutes. Remove from pan; garnish tofu/egg scramble with green onion and sliced avocado.

This is a great breakfast, and you can change it up with whatever ingredients you have on hand: mushrooms, pinto or black beans, cheese or cheese substitute, even salsa!

Remember, Folks, food determines how we feel and heal!
