This recipe takes less that 15 minutes to make and contains an abundance of antioxidants and protein to keep you full and boost your immune system throughout the morning!  Kale, carrots, turmeric and garlic bring multiple nutrients to your body!  The great thing about a scramble is you can add whatever veggies you love best!

This is a great item to eat by itself or serve with sweet potato hash browns plant based breakfast patties or fresh smoothie.  

To deepen the color of the tofu scramble add a little more turmeric!

You can freeze tofu and these left overs if needed.

   

Health Benefits

Turmeric is one of the world's healthiest super foods!  Adding this spice into a dish that compliments it will add a number of health benefits!

  

The spice is known for boosting energy levels, boosting mobility, is an anti-inflammatory, is linked to lowering the risk of heart disease & cancer and is high in antioxidants!  Truly a super food spice indeed!

The main health benefit is curcumin but it's poorly absorbed into the body's bloodstream. A supplement that contains Bioperine helps to enhance the absorption of nutrients by 30% or more.  Adding a supplement may help boost your immunity.

Budget Tips

To save some money when purchasing tofu buy it in bulk or on sale and freeze the extra product you don't need right away.  Tofu freezes well and there a 100's of other recipes were you can use tofu.

Purchasing turmeric in the bulk section of a grocery store typically reduces  your cost by 20-30% when compared to buying a branded spice in a jar.

When you cook the tofu with turmeric the color will intensify with yellow resembling eggs.  However add more turmeric if you want more color to the dish.  You can use a little avocado oil or vegetable broth to saute the veggies.
