    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat a large, heavy pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil. Break tofu apart over pan into bite-size pieces, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then cook, stirring frequently with a thin metal spatula, until liquid cooks out and tofu browns, about 10 minutes. (If you notice liquid collecting in pan, increase heat to evaporate water). Be sure to get under the tofu when you stir, scraping the bottom of the pan where the good, crispy stuff is and keeping it from sticking.
    2. Add onion and garlic granules, turmeric, juice and remaining tablespoon oil and toss to coat. Cook 5 minutes more.
    3. Preheat a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oil. Cook onion and jalapenos with a pinch of salt, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes, Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, cumin and remaining salt; cook, stirring, until tomatoes become saucy, about 5 minutes. Add fresh coriander and lemon juice. Let coriander wilt in. Add beans and heat through, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Taste for salt and seasoning.
    4. Spoon some hash browns into each bowl, followed by a scoop of beans and a scoop of tofu scramble. Top with avocado, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and a sprinkle of fresh coriander. Serve with hot sauce.

    Yum! I finally know how to properly scramble tofu--and now have a great recipe for my vegan sister to enjoy at brunch.  -  28 Nov 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really tasty stuff. Tofu actually ended up looking like scrambled eggs, which was a nice surprise that would likely engage a wider breakfast audience. I had some leftovers of the bean portion of the meal which ended up tasting lovely with some rice the next day!  -  28 Dec 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    used red beans instead of black, added cayenne pepper after the fact, otherwise faithful to directions, very good  -  09 Dec 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
