Ingredients
  • 200 grams tofu
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (for color, optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. **Prep Vegetables and Tofu:** Chop the onion, bell pepper, and spinach. Crumble the tofu by hand or with a fork.
  2. **Cook Vegetables:** Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper, sautéing until slightly soft, about 5 minutes.
  3. **Add Tofu:** Introduce the crumbled tofu to the pan, mixing well. Sprinkle in the turmeric if using, for color, and stir until evenly distributed.
  4. **Season:** Drizzle soy sauce over the mixture, stirring to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let cook for another 5-10 minutes until everything is heated through and the flavors meld.
  5. **Finish with Spinach:** Add the chopped spinach, stirring until just wilted, about 2 minutes.
  6. **Serve:** Transfer to a plate and enjoy warm.
Note
  • Feel free to use any vegetables you have on hand. Bell peppers, spinach, and mushrooms make great additions.
  • Traditional Japanese seasonings like soy sauce and mirin can add a depth of flavor, but adjust according to your taste preferences.
  • Firm or extra-firm tofu is recommended for a texture closest to scrambled eggs.
