A Wholesome Breakfast in Under 20 Minutes

Breakfast, as you all know, is the most important meal of the day. In my opinion, if you start your day off with a good breakfast, the rest of the day is bound to go well, don't you agree? The usual routine of idly, dosa, upma becomes boring after some time and I wanted to have something different. That's when I decided to make myself some toast and scrambled tofu. So here's what I did.
Ingredients (Serves 1)
Tofu – ½ cup
Finely chopped onions – 3 tbsps
Finely chopped green chili – 1 tsp
Finely chopped ginger – ½ tsp
Turmeric powder – a pinch
Oil – 2 tsps
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Cilantro for garnish
Brown bread – 2 slices
Butter
Method
Crumble the tofu with a fork and keep ready. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the onions and sauté until they turn slightly brown. Add the chopped ginger, chili, and turmeric powder and sauté for a minute.  Add the crumbled tofu  and salt and mix well. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until the tofu loses a bit of its moisture. 
As the tofu cooks, toast and butter the bread and keep ready.
Turn off the heat, add the freshly ground black pepper and cilantro and enjoy it with the toast.
I also made some freshly squeezed orange juice to wash it all down. Have a wonderful day! Bon Appétit.
