So tonight I didn’t feel much like cooking and after my super greens smoothie filled with spinach and watercress, I didn’t feel like a huge meal either. Growing up I remember having breakfast for dinner up to three times a week… and loved it!! I haven’t really done that in a while so I thought I’d give it a go.
Chorizo and Broccoli Scrambled Tofu
1 tsp. sesame oil (any oil would do)
1/2 cup broccoli florets
1/4 cup baby spinach
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. yellow onion
1/2 link vegan chorizo sausage
1/2 cup extra firm tofu, crumbled
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
Sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds
1 tsp. Earth Balance butter
Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet; add the broccoli and spinach and heat, on medium-low until the oil is absorbed. Add 1/4 cup water and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the water has evaporated, about 5-7 minutes depending on the size of broccoli. Add the onion and sausage and cook for 4-5 minutes until the onions are softened and the sausage is heated throughout. Add in the crumbled tofu and season with salt and pepper. Heat for 2-3 minutes until sizzling and heated throughout.
Sprinkle on the nutritional yeast and stir to combine.
Spoon onto a plate, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds (hopefully you have some left after you made your sushi the other night ;) ) and top with 1 tsp. Earth Balance butter.
This was a great dinner!! If you’ve never tried scrambled tofu it is a must!! The texture is so similar to that of egg it is insane. The chorizo I could have done without, but hey, it’s on sale and I love to try new things!! Enjoy!!
