Black bean Scramble

This makes a great weekend breakfast. It’s delicious served with warm tortillas burrito-style, or on toasted sourdough, and it’s packed with healthy proteins. Look for Kala Namak aka Indian Black salt which gives tofu scramble an eggy flavour. Alternatively, this recipe works just as well with two beaten eggs, lightly scrambled after adding the beans. Serves 2.
