Basic Tofu Scramble

You can easily modify this dish and add or subtract whatever you want.  Add in some fried potatoes for more body.  Turn it Mexican with some salsa and serve with flour tortillas.


  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 block tofu
  • 2 tbsp oil or margarine
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast

Crumble the tofu in a bowl (use hands or a fork) or crumble later in the skillet using a spatula.

Next, heat the oil or margarine in a large skillet or frying pan and sautee the chopped onion, pepper to soften.  Add in the crumbled tofu and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Next, add the garlic powder, onion powder and soy sauce and reduce the heat down to medium. Allow your tofu to cook 5-7 more minutes, stirring frequently and adding a bit more oil if needed. Finally, add the nutritional yeast and stir to combine well and make sure that your tofu is well coated.
