  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 White Onion chopped,
  • a few pinches of salt
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced,
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 16-ounce package organic firm tofu, crumbled,
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt or black salt kala namak,
  • 4 cups spinach tightly packed, freshly ground black pepper.


  • In a large skillet, warm the oil over medium heat.
  • Saute the onions with a few pinches of salt and a splash of water, and cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until they become slightly translucent.
  • Mix in the crumbled tofu, nutritional yeast, and black salt. Cook, stirring often, for a few minutes, to warm the tofu. Then add the spinach and cook until it’s wilted.
  • Taste and season with salt and lots of black pepper.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy topped with your favorite hot sauce.
  • I like to add cilantro, some lime and even roasted peanuts


TEX-MEX SCRAMBLE VARIATION: Add in ¼ cup of salsa, 1 cup of black beans, and a handful of cilantro at the end of cooking.
NUTRITION TIP: Opt for the tex-mex if you’re bulking. It’s higher in calories and protein. And don’t stop at the spinach. You can use any other veggie too!
STORAGE TIP: Keeps in the refrigerator for 5 days in an airtight container.
