Crock Pot Tofu Scramble

With our schedules being so busy it's nice to start the day by having breakfast ready and waiting when you wake up.  Although the weather hasn't tapered off, sometimes having warm comforting foods is just what is needed to set a positive tone for the remainder of the day.  Crock Pot recipes aren't only for fall or winter and they aren't just for soups, chili's or stews.  You can make any recipe imaginable using the crock pot and it allows for a wholesome meal while freeing up your time.

Crock Pot Tofu Scramble

1 package extra firm tofu, drained and crumbled
1/4 c. water
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1/2 organic bell pepper, chopped
1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 c. nondairy cheddar cheese, shredded

At night, before going to bed, lightly spray crock pot with oil.  Combine all ingredients except cheese and gently stir to mix spices throughout.  Set crock pot on low and cook for 8 hours.  When you wake up, drain excess water, add cheese and replace lid for a minute, this will allow for the cheese to melt.  Gently stir mixture and serve.  Serves 3-4

* You can get creative and add tomatoes, beans or faux meats.  These would be added the night before along with all that other ingredients.
