  • 2 1/2 tbsp tamari
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (optional) or 3 tbsp vegetable stock if not using oil
  • 1 cup white onion, small dice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup peppers, diced (red, orange etc.)
  • 1 cup baby spinach

  1. First, gather and prepare your mix ins like herbs and veggies
  2. To prepare the scramble, in a bowl, crumble the tofu, add the tamari and set aside.

*Black salt is a sulfur rich salt that despite its name is greyer in color. Black salt is popular in Indian cooking, and once used has a very distinct sulphuric aroma. For eggless cuisine, this salt is quite popular for scrambles and frittatas.
