Recipe for Vegan Tofu Scramble

In a medium size frying pan, saute 1 to 2 cloves of garlic, 1 medium onion, or 2 or 3 medium size scallions (I prefer) in 1-1/2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Add 1 teaspoon of soy sauce or Braggs Amino's (what I use).
When garlic and onions are slightly browned, add 1/3 cup chopped carrots and 1/3 cup of chopped sweet potatoes (both chopped in small pieces) and (optional) any type mushroom (chopped) about 1/4 cup.
In the meantime, take a block of firm or extra firm tofu and drain and wrap in paper towels and squeeze out excess water.  Take off paper towel.
Then take half a block and with a fork start to crush the tofu until it looks like cottage cheese, then do the other half.
After the carrots and sweet potatoes cook and become somewhat tender, put all of the tofu in the frying pan.  Keep smushing it.  Mix it together with everything in the pan.  Add one or two tablespoons of tumeric to taste and then put on top spinach or kale and cover under greens become wilted.  Mix greens that are wilted on top in with the rest of the scramble.  You can add olives if you'd like more flavor.  You can also add grated vegan cheese at the end and cover and let it melt on top!  Delicious!

My friend and student Kaitlin Hines brought to my attention the desperate situation her husband is in up at Harlem Hospital Centers. There are Patient Care Associates, Transporters, and Janitors who are being told they don't need masks, which we all know is not true. Their lives are being put at risk because of the shortage of supplies... like everywhere. These people as we know are on the front lines. They are our soldiers. If we just do a little something to help them it would help keep them safe. These are "lower level employees" who are not being taken care of. I would like to raise a few hundred dollars to buy some masks. I do have a connection to buy masks. I know many of us are out of work now but If everyone just chips in $5.00 or more or less we can get these people masks for the next month. This is an Independent organizing method by Kaitlin and her husband to get items directly to lower level workers.
Please send to my paypal
I would like to get these masks to these workers as soon as possible
Thank You...Let's support each other!

Enjoying spring.

Zoom teaching.

Best wishes to everyone.
