Today’s filling breakfast is Esther the Wonder Pig’s Eggy Tofu Scramble with Sun-dried Tomatoes, Baby Spinach, Field Roast Maple Breakfast Sausages and Sourdough toast. The baby spinach can be omitted if you just want an eggy tofu scramble. If you are shopping at Trader Joe’s this weekend, check out the Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning blend. For a more eggy flavor, sprinkle Kala Namak as a finishing salt on your tofu scramble. Recipe courtesy of Chef Linda of Esther's Kitchen!

1 Tablespoon dairy-free, vegan butter
14 oz/397g package organic firm tofu, drained and not pressed
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
Dash ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup loosely measured sun-dried julienne cut sun-dried tomatoes from a store bought package
2 handfuls organic baby spinach
Field Roast Maple Breakfast Sausages, cooked to package directions
*ourdough toast with vegan butter
1. Break up the tofu in chunks with your fingers and add it to a glass mixing bowl. Add the nutritional yeast, turmeric, garlic powder, and black pepper. Gently stir with a silicone spatula.
2. Heat a non-stick sauté pan over medium heat. Melt the 1 Tablespoon of dairy-free butter in the pan. Add the tofu. The tofu will be runny in the beginning. The water will evaporate as it cooks. Sauté the tofu scramble on medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes and cook for another 4 minutes. Stir occasionally. Add the baby spinach and cook just until it begins to wilt.
For an eggy flavor, add Kala Namak salt at serving time.
4. The cooked tofu scramble can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 days.
