Before you start

Tofu press | Powerful blender | Baking tray | Frying pan

Prepare the tofu and cook the plant-based sausages

  • Press the firm tofu using a tofu press or place it between two clean tea towels, lay it on a plate and put a weight on top
  • Leave for a few minutes to drain off any liquid and firm up
  • Put the sausages on the baking tray and cook in the oven for 20 minutes
  • Blitz the silken tofu in the blender until smooth
  • Peel and grate the garlic
  • Trim and thinly slice the spring onions
  • Wash, dry and roughly chop the spinach
  • Crumble the pressed tofu into small pieces

Fry the onion and garlic

  • Heat the olive oil in the frying pan over a medium heat
  • Add some of the spring onions (saving a tablespoon of the green parts for garnish) and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds
  • Add the garlic and stir for a further 30 seconds
  • Turn the heat down, add the turmeric, black salt (if using) and soy sauce and stir to combine
  • Take the pan off the heat

Make the scramble

  • Take the sausages out of the oven and carefully cut them into small 1cm chunks
  • Put the pan back on the hob over a medium heat, add the sausage pieces and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring, until the sausage starts to crisp up
  • Turn the heat down, add the blended silken tofu and stir until the silken tofu has taken on the colour of the turmeric and started to bubble
  • Crumble the firm tofu into the pan and fold it with the other ingredients for 2 minutes until it's completely warmed through
  • Add the spinach and fold it into the sausage scramble
  • Taste and season to perfection with salt and pepper

Serve & enjoy!

  • Toast the bread
  • Serve the scramble on the toast and garnish with the remaining spring onion
