Messy Mouse's Scrambled Tofu

My thirteen-month-old daughter will eat just about anything. She especially likes brightly-colored foods, so she loved this multi-hued scrambled tofu. Even the spinach was gobbled down before she asked for more. The smoked sea salt isn't necessary if you can't find it, but it does add a nice dimension to the simple dish.

Messy Mouse's Scrambled Tofu

1 lb firm tofu, drained and mashed with a fork
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 of a red bell pepper, chopped
1-2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 cup baby spinach
1 Roma tomato, chopped
1 1/2 tsp fresh basil, minced
fresh ground pepper to taste
sprinkle of smoked sea salt (optional)

Heat oil in a skillet. Add tofu, garlic powder, onion powder, turmeric, and salt and stir well to combine. Scramble for 7-8 minutes, then stir in red bell pepper. Continue to scramble until the bell pepper begins to soften. Stir in nutritional yeast, spinach, and basil. Scramble for about 1 minute, until spinach wilts. Remove from heat and add pepper and smoked salt to taste.

Serve over a bed of fresh baby spinach with toast on the side.
