This Spicy Tofu Scramble is your answer to a quick, no fuss meal! This high protein filling can be served inside a warm tortilla as this recipe suggests, but the leftovers also make a great protein source on top of your salad greens. The nutritional yeast provides a vegan source of Vitamin B12 which can be low in many plant based diets. The kale can easily be swapped out for spinach or collard greens. Bon Appetit!
