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” tofu. You 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 👩🍳
- Place large pan on low heat and add olive oil.
- Dice the onion, start frying
- Cut mushrooms and fry in a separate pan with oil
- Scramble the tofu with your hands in a bowl. Add all spices to the tofu and mix with your hands
- 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
- 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.
