  • 1 tsp Essential Olive Oil
  • 225g pack The Tofoo Co Smoked Tofu, crumbled into large pieces
  • 1 tsp garlic paste or purée
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric
  • 115g pack baby spinach
  • 2 large slices bread
  • 1 red chilli, thinly sliced
  • 100g watercress
  • 1 Essential Avocado, sliced

  1. Heat ½ tsp oil in a nonstick frying pan. Add the tofu, garlic paste or purée, turmeric and seasoning and cook over a medium heat, stirring often, for 2-3 minutes, until the tofu is golden. Remove from the pan and set aside. Tip the spinach into the same pan, and cook briefly over a high heat to wilt, then season.

  3. Drizzle the remaining oil over the hot toast, then top with the scrambled tofu and spinach mixture. Scatter with the chilli. Toss the watercress and avocado with the lemon juice and some seasoning and serve alongside.
