Tofu Curry Kale Scramble with Breakfast Potatoes


So, I know I have been complaining lately about eating too many sandwiches and starches and not enough vegetables, but this is perhaps the tastiest, starchiest, sandwichiest breakfast I've had in a long time.  We made this for brunch on a Sunday, and it stayed with me all day.  The filling is a tofu scramble, AND it has kale.  So yeah, greens, baby!




Just look at all that kale.  Of course, you don't have to have this scramble in a sandwich.  It would go great with toast, or fruit, or potatoes.


Tofu Curry Kale Scramble

Ingredients

  • 3 cups chopped kale
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 package firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 cloves garlic, diced small
  • 1 pinch salt + 1 tsp
  • 1 1/2 tbs curry powder
  • 1 tbs powdered ginger
  • juice from 1 lemon
  1. In a large saute pan, heat up olive oil on medium heat.
  2. Add onion, green pepper, a pinch of salt, and garlic and saute for 5 minutes.
  3. Crumble in tofu.
  4. Add in water, lemon juice, salt and spices.
  5. Cook down on medium for 15 minutes.




As you can see, I haven't been able to stop eating these Chao slices since our Whole Foods started carrying them.  I toasted some bread, put jam on the inside, then the slices.  It was an incredible combination.  Of course, this meal wasn't complete without potatoes.




Oven Roasted Breakfast Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 3 cups small red and yukon potatoes
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried coriander
  • 1/2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (F).
  2. Chop potatoes into bite size pieces.
  3. Toss the remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. Spread onto baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Serve hot!


Basil thinks I should stop roasting potatoes and feed her already.  We are so happy that she has her appetite back, but now she's taken to inhaling her food in a few minutes and laying around her bowl as if we didn't just feed her.  It's pretty hilarious.  We still miss Bodhi so much, but we get a lot of joy and comfort from Bazie.  As we never expected her to be an only child, we are discussing getting her a sibling.  We are waiting until after we finish traveling for the holidays, and we're still not sure we are ready, but we want to do what's best for her.  I'll keep you posted.


Did someone just shake my food bag??



Ok, back to breakfast!  This was delicious, right down to the last bite.  

Do you make tofu scramble often?  Do you like it alone, or in a wrap, or in a sandwich?  Let me know!
