How to make this scramble (how to prepare it)

  • Preheat the oven to 400F (200C). Prepare a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  • Wrap the tofu in a kitchen cloth and press it with something heavy on top to remove as much liquid as possible.
  • In the meantime, add the onion and cauliflower to a large mixing bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 3 tablespoons of masala spice blend and season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
  • Transfer the vegetables onto the lined baking sheet and place into the hot oven to bake for 20 minutes.
  • Add the kale to the mixing bowl and toss with another tablespoon of olive oil and masala spice, and season with salt and pepper. Massage with your hands to coat the kale in the oil and spice mixture.
  • At the 20 minute mark, give the cauliflower and onion a stir and add the kale to one end of the baking sheet. Bake for a further 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, preheat a large skillet to medium-high heat.
  • Place the tofu in a bowl and use a fork to tear it apart. Add the olives, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and masala spice blend, season with salt, and pepper; and add half the parsley.
  • Once the pan is hot, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and cook the tofu for about 5 minutes, or until browned and dry.
  • To serve, place the vegetable mixture on serving plates and top with tofu scramble. Garnish with the remaining parsley and serve immediately.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container, in the refrigerator, for up to 2 days.
