Tofu bhurji

This tofu bhurji is my take on scrambled tofu with warm Indian spices. It’s great to eat at any time of day! I had mine for brunch along with multigrain toast, avocado, and a kale, pineapple, and ginger smoothie for a nutrient-packed meal! It’s super easy to make, so try it out! Let me know if you do, and if you post to Instagram use #plantbasedartist! I’d love to see your creations 🙂


1 teaspoon coconut oil (or cooking oil of choice)

1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds

1 teaspoon grated ginger

1/2 block tofu (7 oz)

1/4 cup diced tomatoes

1/4 cup diced bell peppers

1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder

1/4 teaspoon garam masala

1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
