Inspired by “My Beef with Meat” by Rip Esselstyn

1 block extra firm tofu

1 small sweet onion, diced small

1 red bell pepper, diced small

2 tsp. low-sodium tamari

1 tsp. curry powder

¼ tsp. salt

1 tsp. garlic powder

½ tsp. turmeric

½ tsp. black pepper

½ cup chopped cilantro

¼ cup chopped chives

½ cup nutritional yeast

Over a fine metal sieve, squeeze as much liquid out of the tofu as possible.  Crumble tofu into small pieces.

Heat a large non-stick pan to medium heat.  Saute onion using just a small amount of water (if needed) for about 5 minutes.  Add bell pepper and sauté another 3 minutes.  Add in tamari and all spices and cook about 30 seconds.  Add crumbled tofu.  Cook about 3-5 minutes, then stir in chopped cilantro and chives.  Sprinkle the nutritional yeast over and stir to coat.  Serve!

Melon Breakfast Smoothie

I have more than 2 whole Galia melons to use up, so this morning I whipped up this delicious smoothie.  Galia melons are an heirloom variety similar to a honeydew, but sweeter and juicier.  They are delicious!

2 cups Galia melon (or honeydew)

1 overly-ripe banana

1/2 cup frozen mango

1 T hemp seeds

1 tsp. maca

Enjoy!
