Recipe type: breakfast, brunch
Serves: 3
  • ½ large yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 6 white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp Hawaiin black salt (for sulfur/egg taste!)
  • ¼-1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 block of organic medium or soft tofu (about 350g)
  • ½ cup hummus of choice or this Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • Taters:
  • 4-5 russet potatoes, scrubbed clean then diced (into small ¼ inch cubes)
  • 1 tsp avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Extras:
  • Sliced tomato
  • Sliced avocado
  • Hot sauce
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425°F
  2. Coat the potatoes with avo oil, onion and garlic powder. Then lay them out on a parchment-covered (or silicone sheet-covered) pan, making sure they're barely touching each other (you may need 2 pans).
  3. Bake potatoes for 20-30 minutes, flipping half way. They should be golden on all sides.
  4. Oil-free sauté your onions: Bring pan to medium heat, throw onions on and let heat until they brown. Then add a bit of water to de-caramelize the pan. Do this until they are translucent (about 5 minutes, adding water if they stick).
  5. Add mushrooms, pepper and garlic. Let sauté a couple of minutes.
  6. Add the spices and a bit more water (about ¼ cup)
  7. Crumble the tofu with your hands (trying to get the tiniest crumbs possible) into the pan.
  8. Add the hummus.
  9. Mix it all together and let sauté for a couple more minutes.
  10. Serve it up with the potatoes, avocado, fresh tomato, and Sriracha hot sauce!
