Tofu Scramble with Spinach, Peppers and Sausage

Here is my recipe for a tasty tofu scramble.

Scramble Tofu with Spinach, Peppers and Sausage

Serves 1 to 2

1 small potato (approximate 5 oz), peeled, rinsed, diced

4 oz block of tofu (1/4 of a 14 oz tub) firm or extra firm tofu

1 Tofurkey Kielbasa or Italian sausage, sliced into about ¼ “thick pieces

3 oz roasted red and yellow peppers (or just red) from a jar, finely chopped

4 tablespoons frozen chopped spinach, thawed (put it in a small bowl , like a ramekin, with warm water then drain in small colander when thawed or put in a small colander and run warm to hot water over it until thawed, a few minutes)

1 tablespoon store bought sofrito*

¼ teaspoon sazon goya con culantro y achiote (the orange packet)

1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

1- In a bowl place the tofu in between a few paper towels and press out excess water. Drain the water and then mash the tofu with a potato masher.

2- Heat a 9 to 10” non stick pan for 1 minute. Then heat the oil for 30 seconds to 1 minute. (When heating oil to make sure the oil is ready, flick a small sprinkle of water into pan with oil. If you hear a sizzle then it is ready. )

3- Add the potatoes to the pan and on a low to medium flame stir occasionally for 10 minutes.

4- Mix in the tofu and continue to stir occasional for 3 more minutes.

5- Mix in the peppers, sofrito and sazon. Continue to cook on a low to medium flame stirring occasional for 5 minutes.

6- Then mix in the spinach and sausage. Cook about 3 minutes more until the spinach is cooked and sausage is heated through.

Serving ideas- This can be a main meal for one saving leftovers for another meal. If you have leftovers store in a sealed container and reheat in the microwave about 1 minute and 30 to 40 seconds with the cover off. This can also serve two people with a side of toast for breakfast.

* Sofrito is a Spanish cooking sauce with a mixture of tomatoes, peppers, onion, cilantro and garlic. Goya makes this and can be found in supermarkets. There is Sofrito in the jar and in the frozen section. I used the one in the Jar for this recipe.
