Scrambled Turmeric Tofu

I experimented with tofu many many times before I got it right; have had a love-hate relationship with it for awhile now, but I think I’ve mastered a few ways of preparing it.

I’ve found that scrambled is one of the easiest ways to cook it!

This dish is great served on a plate with vegetables, with toast, jam, or even in a potato sandwich!

🍁 Ingredients (3 servings) 🍁

  • 280 g/9.87 oz. “naked” tofuYou usually need to press tofu for at least 2 hours. This is why I like to use this brand; all you need to do is drain it! 
  • 1 small onion (optional) – they don’t show in the picture because I hadn’t any that day!
  • around 1 tbsp of Turmeric powder 
  • 6 button mushrooms
  • 2 tbsps of Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 1/4 tsp grounded all spice 
  • 1/4 tsp/a pinch of paprika 
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries (optional)

🌱 Preparation and Cooking step 👩‍🍳

  1. Place large pan on low heat and add olive oil.
  2. Dice the onion, start frying
  3. Cut mushrooms and fry in a separate pan with oil
  4. Scramble the tofu with your hands in a bowl. Add all spices to the tofu and mix with your hands
  5. Turn fire to medium heat and add tofu/onion mixture – you may need to add some oil according to how much onion you ended up with
  6. Turn heat to high, and mix well for around 4-5 minutes (until tofu turns golden).

👩‍🍳How to Serve 👩‍🍳

Serve hot in plate, sprinkle with some dried cranberries!

I like to have it either with a side of cooked baby spinach and tomatoes, or in a sandwich with mashed potatoes! It also tastes great with Wholewheat Tortillas.
