  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 10 oz button or cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 16 oz package firm or extra-firm tofu drained
  • 2 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 3/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil sliced into chiffonade
  • Optional hot sauce, diced avocado, diced tomato


  • Heat the oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the onions and a pinch of salt. Cook for about 4-6 minutes until softened.
  • Add the garlic to the pan and saute for 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and cook for 7 mins or until the moisture is released, cooked off and the mushrooms begin to brown.
  • While the mushrooms are cooking, in a medium bowl, crumble the tofu with your hands or fork, maintaining some larger chunks. Stir in the nutritional yeast, salt, black pepper, turmeric, cumin and smoked paprika until well combined.
  • Stir the crumbled tofu mixture and kale to the pan and cook for about 2-4 minutes until the tofu is heated through and the leafy greens have wilted. Stir in the basil.
  • Serve with hot sauce, avocado and diced tomatoes if desired.
