1/2 onion, diced
2 small carrots, diced (or 1 large)
1/4 apple, diced
1/2 package lite firm tofu, pressed in towel for at least 10 minutes and diced and/ or crumbled
generous sprinkle garam masala spice blend(i used penzey’s punjabi)
1/4 to 1/2 inch fresh ginger root, peeled and grated with microplane

Heat oil (about 1/2 to 1 tbsp.) in nonstick or cast iron pan on medium. Add diced onion and carrots and begin to soften. Add apple. A minute or two later, throw in your tofu and distribute evenly over pan. Season generously with garam masala, ginger, lemon pepper, and salt. As tofu begins to brown, throw in your spinach and finally nutritional yeast, folding into other ingredients. When it starts to brown lightly, remove from heat and enjoy!
