Each week, Real Sustainable Habits highlights a tasty and unique, yet low-cost and easy to prepare vegetarian recipe. We post it on Friday so that you’ll have ample time over the weekend to gather the ingredients in preparation for Meatless Monday. One mission of Real Sustainable Habits is to help people who want to adopt a plant-centered, vegetarian, or vegan diet make that transition. Cutting out all meat one day each week is a great starting point for beginners.
This Week’s Recipe: Tofu and Black Bean Scramble
Tofu Scramble is one of our favorite breakfast meals because it’s very filling, a great source of protein to start your day, and can be made a variety of different ways. For this recipe, we’ll use an extra firm block of tofu, black beans, green peppers, corn, onions, and Mexican spices.
First, let’s gather our kitchen utensils:
- 2 Medium Skillets
- Potato Masher
Let’s cover the ingredients you’ll need:
- 1 block Extra Firm Tofu

- 1 Garlic Clove, crushed
- 4 tablespoons Olive Oil
- 2 tablespoons Chili Powder
- 2 tablespoons Curry Powder
- 1 tablespoon Ground Cumin
- 2 teaspoons Salt, or to taste
- 2 teaspoons Pepper, or to taste
Let’s step through how to make Tofu and Black Bean Scramble:
- In a medium skillet, mash the tofu with a potato masher. Stir in 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the curry powder and saute for 5 minutes or until the tofu starts to brown.
- In the other skillet, saute the onion, garlic, green peppers, and corn in the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil for 4 minutes.
