  • 1/4 cup Fresh Cilantro chopped

  • 1/4 teaspoon Tumeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Salt(Kala Namak) optional

  • Roughly mash tofu in a bowl. Season with Tumeric and a little salt and pepper.

  • Add a little oil to skillet and cook tofu undisturbed for 5 minutes. Stir and continue to cook, stirring occasionally for another 5 minutes. Add black salt (optional).
  • Return potatoes, chorizo, and vegetables to skillet. Stir to combine and cook until heated through approximately 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat. Stir in cilantro.
  • Serve topped with avocado slices. Add vegan sour cream if desired.


FOR MORE FLAVOR: Optional add-ins include fresh or Rotel tomatoes, black or pinto beans or even a little vegan Mexican cheese blend!
*SALT: Any type of salt is okay, but I prefer to use Kala Namak salt because it tastes like real eggs.
**TUMERIC: If you’re not a turmeric lover or you’re not used to its flavor, add only 1/8 tsp of turmeric powder, then try the scramble and add more if needed.
***SERVING: This recipe yields 11 grams of protein for each serving.
