    1. Heat butter in a nonstick skillet over a medium-high flame.
    2. Add a quarter of diced onions, stir fry for about a minute, until soft.
    3. Add a 20-ounce bag of hash browns, stir occasionally, until lightly browned. I used frozen store-bought hash browns. It does not need to thaw out completely.
    4. Add half a teaspoon of salt and stir to combine.

    9. Add 2 diced green onions, stir fry until translucent and fragrant.
    10. Meanwhile, take out 1 block of tofu from the package. Use cotton cloth or paper-towel to pat-dry the excess water. Put tofu in a bowl and proceed to crumble it with your fingers. Make sure the entire block of tofu is crumbled, no large chunks.
    11. Add the drained crumbled tofu to the onion mixture in the pan. Add a quarter (1/4) teaspoon of salt, 2 to 3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast, 1 teaspoon of turmeric, and stir well to combine everything.
    12. Cook on high heat for about 4-6 minutes. Taste for flavor. If satisfied, create some space in the pan for spinach by scooping aside the tofu mixture.
    13. In the same pan on MED- HI Heat, add frozen spinach and pour over the spinach around 1 teaspoon of oil. Season the spinach by adding some salt, green onions, and sauté spinach till wilted.
    14. Stir to combine the tofu and spinach and remove from the heat.
