Tofu Mushroom Scramble
with spinach and fruit salad

Active: 30 minTotal: 30 min

When we combine tofu with a bit of yellow-colored turmeric, no one will even know that you're eating tofu instead of eggs. Packed with veggies and enjoyed with a side of fruit, this is one of those meals you can make a bunch of different ways but always feel good about eating. Our paleo version uses eggs instead of tofu.

  • Onions - 1, diced
  • Mushrooms, brown - 1 lb, quartered
  • Roma tomatoes - 2, diced
  • Strawberries - 1/2 lb, sliced
  • Oranges - 2, segmented

The taste is a little bland. Good ingredients but can easily be watery if the tofu isn't given enough time to drain. Salt and pepper was a must fit this recipe.

I liked this a lot, however I did add hot sauce to it, due to it being a little bland for my husband and I. I might add curry the next time I make it to see if it spices it up a little.
