Hearty Vegan Breakfast Scramble

My kids and husband, though not vegetarian,  eat mostly vegetarian food at home, since I'm the one who does all the cooking. Some things are easy, being already meat-free, like pancakes. But sometimes the locals start craving some sausage and it's always a treat to come up with something that pleases everybody.

Perfectly hearty and warming for the colder winter days, this recipe is low fat and packed with protein and flavor. But be warned: you better get your fill on the first bowl, because there won't be leftovers for second helpings!

Serves 4

1 block extra firm tofu, drained and cubed
5 vegetarian breakfast sausage patties, cubed
1 firm roma tomato, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 tsp each cumin and chili powder
1 sprig cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet, heat some oil until it is very hot. Then add in the tofu and sausage, stirring occasionally, until browned all over. Add in the spices and cook 1 minute. Add in the tomatoes, green onions and cilantro, cook another 1-2 minutes.

Serve with salsa.
