How to make this vegan breakfast bowl

Roast the potatoes

Wash white potatoes, then boil them until almost fork-tender.

Drain the potatoes and cut them into 1” cubes. Season to your liking and arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.

Make the scramble

In the meantime, sauté onion and mushrooms in a splash of olive oil or water. Add silken tofu and break it down into small-ish pieces with a spatula.

Add garlic powder, salt, pepper, kala namak, turmeric, smoked paprika, and nutritional yeast. Stir until well combined without overworking the delicate tofu!

Cook until a light golden brown “skin” forms, then set aside.

Assemble the breakfast bowl

Wash the arugula and baby spinach and divide them between serving bowls. Top with roasted potatoes, scrambled tofu, fresh salsa, avocado, and a slice of toasted bread.

Enjoy immediately!

Meal prep

These breakfast bowls are great for meal prep or using up leftovers because they are really customizable!

Prepare the scrambled tofu in larger quantities to make these bowls in the morning, use pre-cooked grains or pre-roasted vegetables, and assemble on some fresh leafy greens in the morning.

Be sure to store the salsa or any sauce separately!
