  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the bell pepper, jalapeño, and red onion. Season with salt. Sauté for 2 minutes, until the vegetables start to sweat.
  2. Crumble the tofu into the pan and stir to break up. Add the turmeric, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper and stir to combine. Make sure the turmeric evenly coats the tofu to give it an egg-like color.
  3. Serve hot with cilantro, sliced avocado, and lime wedges.
  4. Enjoy!
