This is perfect breakfast for the weekend or quick midweek dinner. It comes together in a matter of minutes and packed with so many nutrients. Using turmeric not only gives tofu it distinguished look that resembles scrambled eggs but boost this dish with anti-inflammatory goodness. Herbs add so much flavor and cayenne that kick that just lifts everything.

    I like to serve mine on top of wilted greens, but if you are not a fan another fun idea would serve it with baked beans and mushrooms  Full English breakfast style. I like to add almond milk to the scramble just to make it creamier but that’s optional, what is not optional creaminess factor is an avocado just sliced like I have here or mashed with lime juice is soooo delicious, so I highly recommend adding this element.
