Scrambled Tofu with Garlic & Spinach

Easy vegan breakfast... recipe for one, so increase proportions as desired:

2 big handfuls of fresh spinach
1 large clove garlic thinly sliced
Olive oil spray
1/4 block of firm tofu

Spray pan w/ olive oil and saute garlic over medium heat until softened, but not browned. Toss freshly rinsed spinach in pan on top of garlic. Use the spatula to move the spinach about until it is completely wilted, then push it to the side of the pan. Crumble the tofu into the pan and add 1/2 tsp of tumeric and mix into the tofu as it heats up in the pan. Cook until the tofu is heated through and then mix the spinach from the side of the pan into the heated tofu mix. Serve!
There are many recipes for scrambled tofu... it is so easy that from this basic premise you can add anything you like... peppers, onions, mushrooms, and on and on...

Apple Walnut Dressing

Another amazing vinaigrette. You can't have too many. I found this in a recipe for a spinach-avocado salad, but then I couldn't find the site to give credit. So here it is anyway in all its awesome glory:

1/4 c apple cider vinegar
1 tbs agave nectar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp cumin
2 pinches cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 c walnut oil

Place all the ingredients in a jar and shake.
