The Turmeric Train Continues... Savoury Style!!

Hi there friendly friends and welcome back to what seems to be the theme of the past week or so- TURMERIC!!

I have been absolutely loving this spice lately- and, oh my goodness, why has no one ever told me how utterly amazing the mango/turmeric combo is?? I mean I whipped up a creamy dreamy green mango smoothie the other day and added a few dashes of the golden spice and voila! Soooo delicious!! What is that!?!
 Simply 1 frozen banana, 1 massive handful frozen zucchini chunks, 5 chunks frozen spinach, 1 handful frozen mango, 3 scoops greek yoghurt, 3/4 cup rolled oats soaked in 1 cup almond milk and a splash of water for 5-10mins until absorbed, 2 big dashes of turmeric- water to whaz up and voila! Beautiful!!

But today, I actually have a savoury recipe for you for once! Yep and it involves the words scramble, breakfast and burrito... I think you'll be a fan:
This, my friends, is the spicy turmeric tofu scramble and garlic sauteed veggie breakfast burrito! Yasss!!

It's super filling, filled with all the good protein, fibre from the veggies and wholegrain wraps, all those incredible nutrients our body thrives on and all those anti-inflammatory properties I'm always raving on about with the turmeric and other spices!!
So, without further a-do, here is the simple-pimple, whip up in 15-minutes, recipe for you!

Tofu scramble breakfast veggie burrito:

Tofu scramble:
1/2 block tofu (125g) crumbled up in a bowl
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 dashes cayenne pepper
1/2 clove of garlic
1/2 medium zucchini sliced long
2 mushrooms, sliced
5 cherry tomatoes sliced in half lengthways
a handful of sliced capsicum
a handful of sliced onion
1 clove of garlic
 1 wholemeal wrap
2 tablespoons hommus

1. To make the tofu scramble place the spices in a small bowl and add 1 tablespoon of water- stir to combine
2. Mix spice blend through crumbled tofu and place in a frypan over medium heat
 3. Stir often to prevent the tofu sticking and if it does stick simply add a few splashes of water- continue cooking for 5-10mins or until tofu has slightly browned and is a bright golden colour! Set aside
4. Place the veggies and garlic in the same fry pan over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally until the veggies turn from this:
to this:
Nice and golden brown and tender!
5. Remove from heat and set aside
6. Warm up tortilla in either the microwave for 10 seconds or the hot [an for 10-20 seconds and the spread with hommus.
7. Layer on the spinach, then the veg:
8. And finally the spicy tofu scramble (be sure not to overfill because it will make it extremely difficult to wrap up and toast- plus the leftovers on the side taste just as good on their own!!)
9. Fold up the wrap and then place in a sandwich press for a few minutes until golden brown and crispy:
10. ENJOY!!

Happy, happy days- so delicious and exactly what the doctor ordered for a beautifully hearty and satisfying meal with ALL the benefits of healthy eating tasting like a super delish lunch burrito!

Your turn:
What's your favourite way to eat tofu scramble? I do love a scramble on hommus 'buttered' toast with some sauteed mushrooms and tomatoes and baked beans for the ultimate vegan brekky!
Favourite things to put in a wrap?
Fav way to use tofu in general? I used to put it in my smoothies all the time (silken) but now-a-days I love to bake it and have it with stir-fried veggies and rice!! So good!!

I hope you all have a lovely day, have a play around with tofu because it really can do so many things, be kind to yourself and others and as always; EAT SOMETHING DELICIOUS!! Bye for now friends! :D
