  • olive oil
  • 1 red onion
  • 4 small portobello mushrooms or 2 large
  • 2 to matoes
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 390 g firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 Tbsp non-dairy milk


  • slices of your favourite bread
  • selection of your favourite sauces


  • Heat some olive oil in a frying pan. Add finely chopped onion and fry gently until soft. When done, set aside in a bowl.
  • Add some more oil to the frying pan. Cut tomatoes in half and place cut-side down in the pan. Add mushrooms to the pan. Cook all together until tender, flipping the vegetables from time to time.
  • In the meantime prepare the tofu scramble. Drain the tofu. Place in another pan and mash with a fork into a scramble. Add the turmeric, garlic powder, nutritional yeast, dried thyme, salt and non-dairy milk. Mix well. Cook under medium heat, stirring often, until golden. Keep warm under low heat while you finish the rest.
  • Once the tomatoes and mushrooms are cooked, push them to the side of the pan to make space for the spinach. Add reserved onion and garlic to the pan, followed by the spinach. Cook until wilted.
  • Share the tofu scramble evenly between two plates. Add two tomato halves to each plate, alongside some mushrooms and spinach. Serve hot with some slices of your favourite bread toasted and sauces of your choice.
