½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon chili powder

1 jalapeño pepper, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
8 cherry tomatoes, halved

3. Heat oil in a large skillet, add jalapeños, and cook for 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for 2 more minutes.

4. With a fork or your hands, break up the tofu into small crumbles.

5. Add tofu to one side of the skillet and cook with the vegetables for about 5 minutes.

6. Add spices, stir, and cook for 5 more minutes.

7. Serve with salsa, cilantro, avocado, or toast.
