Easy Tofu & Mushroom Scramble
w/ Sauteed Onions & Spinach. Topped w/ Cashew Yogurt & Black Salt
I have heard the rage of Himalayan Black Salt for a while. It's taken me a few months but I finally got my hands on it! There are a few different types of black salt but the one used for this recipe is also called Kala Namak; not to confuse it with Black Lava Salt which is a mixture of salt & activated charcoal.
Kala Namak is found in the mountains of India & has a egg-like flavor due to it's molecular structure of different sulfurous. Although high consumption of sulfurous could be toxic, there it's nothing to worry about since recipes call for small amounts.
Black salt does have many different benefits like high in iron, is an aid for indigestion, reduced heartburn, & help lower cholesterol levels by thinning the blood which makes it a good salt for low sodium diets.
This salt really adds so much to the Tofu Scramble! They hype is real!
1 Package of Firm Tofu
5 Cremini Mushrooms
1 Small Yellow Onions
2 Cup Spinach (Generous Handfuls)
2 Tbsp Cashew Yogurt for garnishing (from Foragers Plant-based Yogurt)
1 tsp Soy Sauce
½ tsp Turmeric
½ tsp Garlic Powder
⅛ tsp Cracked Black Pepper
⅛ tsp Himalayan Black Salt (This gives it an egg-like taste)
Optional: Sprinkle Chili Flakes for garnish
This step is optional but I prefer pressing tofu to get the moisture out.
Press the Tofu by wrapping it in a kitchen towel & place something heavy on top & set side for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut the onion into small cuts. In a skillet or pan, drizzle some avocado oil (or oil of your choice). Saute the onions until translucent. Cut mushrooms into thin strips & add to the pan. Saute for about 5 minutes then add spinach & soy sauce. Let the spinach cook down & then crumble in the tofu. Add the rest of the ingredients except the black salt & yogurt.
Cook down for about 15 minutes with occasional stirs.
Turn off the heat & sprinkle the black salt on top. Give it a light mix. Serve on toast or in a wrap! Add the Yogurt to give it a delicious creaminess to make it like a poached egg-like taste.
