Level: Easy

This feel good recipe is an especially good option if you like breakfast-for-dinner, or for a weekend breakfast.

Heat a medium sauté pan over medium high heat. When hot, add the oil to the pan along with the bell pepper, shallots, and chili. Sauté until the peppers begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute longer.

Crumble the tofu into the pan and mix with a rubber spatula to combine. Add the cayenne, turmeric, cumin, coriander, and salt, and cook for an additional 4 minutes, stirring often to distribute the spices evenly. Stir in the black beans and cook for another 2 minutes, or until the beans are heated through. Sprinkle with the cilantro and serve.
