Tofu doesn’t have a great taste by itself, but mixing it with other ingredients gives it a yummy flavor. If you cook the quinoa in advance, (I always have a big container of cooked quinoa in my fridge) it makes this an easy, complete breakfast meal.
Mash the tofu with a fork, and mix the mashed tofu and the quinoa in the pan.
Heat it while mixing it for 5 minutes until it is brown and crispy.
Add cinnamon while you’re heating it.
In the meantime, weigh 6 oz. of fruit and mix it in a small bowl with 1 cup of yogurt.
Place the tofu mix on a plate and top it with the yogurt and fruit.
If you don’t like to mix cold and warm food together, (I love it!) then place the yogurt and the fruit next to the tofu mix instead of on top. If you are short on time in the morning and want to shorten the preparation time, mix the tofu and quinoa in a bowl the night before and leave it in the fridge. Do the same with the fruit and yogurt so it is ready in the morning.
8 ounces tofu
1 cup cooked rice
6 ounces frozen berries, thawed
1 cup yogurt
Clean sweetener (optional)
The rice can be replaced by cooked millet or quinoa. Berries can be replaced with any other fruit.
Spray a pan with cooking spray. In the meantime, measure 8 ounces tofu and cut it into small cubes.
Place the tofu in the pan and add cinnamon and clean sweetener (optional).
Measure one cup of cooked rice (no salt. I always keep a container of cooked rice in my refrigerator) and heat it in a bowl in the microwave for 2 minutes. While it’s in the microwave, stir the tofu in the pan, and measure 1 cup of yogurt so it will be ready to add.
Take the bowl of rice out of the microwave and put it on the scale. Add the fruit. Then add the fried tofu and the yogurt. Mix it all together. The combination of the warm rice and tofu, the cold fruit and the yogurt creates a pink “pudding” mixture: The Bowl of Heaven.
