Tofu Scram & Avo Toast (And Why I Now Love Bread)

This is my go-to for lunch. Easy to make, full of protein and veggies. It’s great to clean out your fridge as well since you can really put whatever you want in it. Give it a go!

Tofu Scram & Avo Toast

Tofu Scram & Avo Toast


Ingredients

Scale

For Scram:

  • a block of firm tofu, drained
  • 2 tsp of olive oil
  • ¼ of an onion chopped
  • Veggies chopped (my go-to is mushrooms and peppers)
  • A handful of spinach
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Dash of salt, pepper, and red chili flakes 

For Toast:

  • 2 slices of fav bread (sourdough and Ezekiel are great options!)
  • ½ an avo
  • ½ a lemon
  • Dash of salt, pepper, and red chili flakes

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan drizzle the oil and add the chopped veggies and let it cook for 5 min. Add the tofu to the pan by crumbling it over the veggies and add the spices, salt, and pepper.
  2. Stir adding water (or more oil if not using a nonstick pan) if needed until the tofu is fully covered in the seasonings.
  3. While it’s cooking, place the toast in the toaster.
  4. Add the spinach a few minutes before serving to the scram to let it steam down.
  5. Once the toast is ready, mash on the avo, squeeze on some lemon, and season with the salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
  6. Plate the tofu scram and you are ready to eat!

Notes

adding tahini, a drizzle of oil, or pickled onions to the avo toast is a great way to change it up

add hot sauce to all of it if you are like me and just live off of hot sauce

A word on bread (a.k.a. why I now love bread) 

If you have fallen into diet traps before there may have been a moment when you feared bread. This may sound crazy at first, but think about if there is ever a time you stayed away from bread because you thought it would make you gain weight or it was just something that was bad to eat. Unless you are sensitive to bread, it actually has a lot of health benefits! I love whole grain/ sprouted bread like Ezekiel because they keep you full longer and have lots of protein.

I also love a good sourdough because it is a probiotic (yay healthy gut bacteria!) and is easy to digest. Whole wheat is full of fiber and B vitamins that are great for our health. I personally hired a dietician to get over fear foods and weed through all the diet culture I have picked up in the past 27 years. I would highly recommend seeing a professional if this is something you struggle with as well. Food is meant to be enjoyed and not feared. Happy eating!
