This tofu scramble tastes so good, it may even sway you to go vegan. With flavors like cumin, coriander, onion, pepper, and cilantro mingling together, you get a surprise in every bite. The turmeric gives the tofu a yellow color so that it even looks like eggs. But, unlike with eggs, you can prepare this dish ahead of time and keep it in your fridge for days. Start cooking now, and get a little taste of the Southwest!
