Instructions

  1. To prepare Tofu Scramble: Heat safflower oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and sauté for a few minutes or until softened. Stir in red bell pepper and canned tomatoes. Sauté for about 2-3 minutes to heat thoroughly.
  2. Crumble tofu into mixture. Add in seasonings and toss to combine. Cook for about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile begin preparing Sweet Potato Hash: Heat safflower oil in another frying pan over medium-high heat. In a mixing bowl, quickly toss shredded potatoes with sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, all-spice, salt and pepper. Add sweet potato to frying pan and try to spread out as much as possible to make an even single layer. Allow to cook for about 5 minutes or until there is noticeable browning on the bottom side. Flip over potatoes to allow the other side to brown. Toss until most of potatoes are crispy and browned. Remove from heat.
