Tofu Scramble

Tofu is versatile and a great source of protein. This scramble can be made with any combination of veggies, herbs and cheeses. If you are an omnivore, you can give it even more flavor by adding an ounce or two of chorizo. Cooked with the ingredients below, it makes four servings of 170 calories and 15 grams of protein. If you are not trying to lose weight, use full fat tofu and cheese.

Heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Crumble the tofu and cook until turning brown. Stir in the black beans and heat. Add the cheese and stir until the tofu is coated. Add remaining ingredients and serve.
