Savoury Scrambled Tofu

 I tried different scrambled tofu recipes in the past but this is the only one that I have ever really liked. This recipe comes from the cookbook reFresh.


1 Tbsp olive oil
1/3 cup onion, chopped
1 tsp garlic, chopped
2 cups firm tofu, drained/pressed*
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
1 pinch turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cups mushrooms, chopped and sautéed (optional)


Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic then sauté until translucent. Crumble the tofu with your hands and add to the pan. Cook for 2 minutes. Combine the yeast, garlic powder, turmeric, salt and pepper into a small bowl and add just enough water to form a thin sauce. Whisk with a fork to remove all lumps. Pour mixture onto your tofu and stir frequently. Add your sautéed mushrooms and cook until liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat.
