  • 1 Frying Pan


  • 1 block silken firm tofu
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast 2
  • 2 tsp olive oil


  • Remove the tofu from the package and drain the excess liquid. Then, wrap the tofu in some paper towels. Place a heavy pan on top of the tofu for roughly 10 minutes to squeeze out any excess water.
  • Cut the tofu into 1-inch cubes.
  • On medium high heat, add the olive oil to a large pan. Wait until the oil is hot, then add in the tofu. Quickly crumble it up using a spatula.
  • Stir the tofu for 5 minutes until all the tofu moisture has evaporated. Then add in all the seasonings (garlic powder, black pepper, turmeric powder, paprika, sea salt, nutritional yeast).
  • Keep frying until reaching the desired crispiness. Remove from heat.
  • Enjoy the tofu scramble over toasted whole wheat bread with your vegetable of choice!
