Gluten Freedom: Tofu Scramble

This month, we are exploring recipes that are no only Gluten Free, but high in heart healthy nutrients. The top 5 heart healthy foods are: blueberries, salmon, soy protein, spinach and oatmeal, so that seems like a good place to start.

Tofu Scramble: 1 yellow onion, diced, 1/2 green bell pepper, diced, 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1 block firm tofu, drained pressed, 2 Tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 Tbsp soy sauce, 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast. Slice the tofu into approximately one inch cubes. Then, using either your hands or a fork, crumble it slightly. Saute onion, pepper and crumbled tofu in oil for 3-5 minutes, stirring often. Add remaining ingredients, reduce heat to medium and allow to cook 5-7 more minutes, stirring frequently and adding more oil if needed.
