Garden Eggs And Tofu With Salsa
Serves: 3

Ingredients

  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 2 cups chopped Swiss chard or organic spinach
  • 1/2 medium tomato, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 teaspoons herbes de Provence (dried French herbs)
  • 1 cup firm tofu
  • 1/8 teaspoon curry powder, or more to taste
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup prepared salsa, low sodium
  • 1 ounce non-dairy mozzarella cheese substitute, grated
  • 6 sprouted grain tortillas, if desired

Directions

  1. In a large sauté pan, heat 1/8 cup water and water sauté the onion, zucchini, carrot, and Swiss chard for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the tomato, garlic, and herbs. 
  3. Cook, stirring for about 2 minutes, until the vegetables begin to soften.
  4. Squeeze water out of tofu and crumble.
  5. Scatter the tofu over the vegetables and sprinkle with curry powder.
  6. Mix with vegetables and cook over high heat until water is cooked away.
  7. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the eggs, mixing well so the vegetables and tofu bind with the eggs. 
  8. Continue stirring, until the eggs are cooked.
  9. Top with salsa and grated cheese substitute. 
  10. May be served on sprouted grain tortillas.
