10 min 20 min 30 min 2


1/2 tsp Chili powder (for sauce)
1/2 tsp Cumin (for sauce)
1/2 tsp Garlic powder (for sauce)
2 cup Kale (loosely chopped)
2 tbsp Olive oil
1/2 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1/4 medium Red onion (thinly sliced)
1/2 tsp Sea salt (for sauce)
227 gm Tofu, silken, extra firm
1/4 tsp Turmeric, ground (optional, for sauce)


Pat tofu dry and roll in a clean, absorbent towel with something heavy on top, such as a cast iron skillet, for 15 minutes.

While tofu is draining, prepare sauce by adding dry spices to a small bowl and adding enough water to make a pourable sauce. Set aside.

Prep veggies and warm a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil and the onion and red pepper. Season with a pinch each salt and pepper and stir. Cook until softened - about 5 minutes.

Add kale, season with a bit more salt and pepper, and cover to steam for 2 minutes.

In the meantime, unwrap tofu and use a fork to crumble into bite-sized pieces.

Use a spatula to move the veggies to one side of the pan and add tofu. Sauté for 2 minutes, then add sauce, pouring it mostly over the tofu and a little over the veggies. Stir immediately, evenly distributing the sauce. Cook for another 5-7 minutes until tofu is slightly browned.

Serve immediately with the breakfast potatoes, toast or fruit. I like to add more flavor with salsa, hot sauce and/or fresh cilantro.
