Tasty Tumeric Breakfast Burrito Bowl

By Dani Taylor


2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1 (14-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, drained

½ teaspoon salt

black pepper to taste

1 ½ teaspoon onion powder

1 ½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon ground turmeric

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 cup finely diced red onion

2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped

½ teaspoon salt

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 cups chopped tomatoes

1 ½ teaspoons cumin

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 (15.5-ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, drained and rinsed

1 ½ cups cooked hash brown potatoes

1 avocado - peeled, pitted, and sliced

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste


  1. Preheat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil.

  2. Break the tofu apart over skillet 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 the 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.

  3. Add onion and garlic powders, turmeric, juice, and toss to coat. Cook 5 minutes more.

  4. Preheat a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil.

  5. Cook onion and jalapenos with a pinch of salt, stirring, until translucent, about 5 minutes.

  6. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  7. Add tomatoes, cumin, and remaining salt, and cook, stirring, until tomatoes become saucy, about 5 minutes.

  8. Add cilantro and lemon juice. Let cilantro wilt in.

  9. Add beans and heat through, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Taste for salt and seasoning.

  10. Spoon some pre-cooked hash browns into each bowl, followed by a scoop of beans and a scoop of the scramble.

  11. Top with avocado, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and a sprinkle of cilantro. Serve with hot sauce.
