High Protein, High Fiber Tofu Scramble

Hi, all long time no post.
I apologize for that school and work has been keeping me busy.
Hopefully I can get back to posting at least once a week, until the holiday season are over.

OK so this week I am posting a High Protein High Fiber Tofu Scramble.
This recipe came about when I started my job and thought I was going to be given more morning shifts then I really do get.
I do close mostly but last week I worked mornings most of the time I worked so this came in handy to eat before going in.

In this scramble there is:
  • Half a larger onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 ladles of beans (I had made them in my pressure cooker for another meal, but it's the equivalence of about 1 can of beans.)
  • 1/2 a cup of frozen corn
  • 1/2 a cup of frozen mixed veggies (lima beans, green beans, carrots, peas, and more corn is what I used)
  • 1 brick of tofu
  • 1 pepper
  • 1 medium sized potato.

The first thing you do is wash, dice and roast the potato, I did mine with a bit of balsamic on it.
After the potato was roasted I started sautéing everything.
First the onion and garlic.
When that seemed done I added the frozen veggies, I added these second to help crisp them up a bit, you can roast them as well for the same effect.
When that has a nice color to it, I added the fresh carrots and peppers and sautéed for about 5 minutes.
The add potato and crumble the tofu in.
Lastly I added the beans, for me the beans where seasoned greatly so that helped, season everything.
After adding all the I still added more seasoning.
Mainly Mrs Dash (it's s seasoning blend), fresh pepper, celery salt, chili powder, cumin, and turmeric.
Sauté for another 5 minutes and serve
