Tofu in the morning? Sounds crazy, but this Morning Tofu Scramble is an incredible way to fuel up for the day!

The Morning Tofu Scramble takes the best a.m. power foods and tosses them up in an exciting blend of Italian seasoning, insanely nutritious turmeric, cumin and chili powder. Words don’t even do this meal justice, so you’ll have to try it to understand.

Black beans, bell pepper and kale are a fairly common combo, but pine nuts give this one that extra something special. More than 25 grams of protein is more than enough to nourish the body, and is shockingly all delivered in this dish with no meat at all!
