Tofu Scramble
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-4
  • 1 block firm tofu (make sure it's organic)
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp olive oil (I only used 1 Tbsp)
  • ½ tsp Tamari Soy Sauce (Tamari is gluten-free, but regular soy sauce is not)
  • ⅛ tsp turmeric
  • 1 red onion (I didn't use a full onion. Use however much you like.)
  • ½ red bell pepper
  • ⅛ tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp umeboshi vinegar (I didn't use this.)
  • dash of black pepper
  1. Press tofu to remove excess water and then crumble into small pieces.
  2. Chop onion and pepper. (I sliced the onion and red pepper with one of my new knives I got for Christmas from the Kuhn Rikon Essential Paring Knife Set. I used the orange one, the nearly straight blade of the sheep’s foot paring knife which is designed for small jobs like mincing, peeling and trimming. Slick-ness!)
  3. Heat oil.
  4. Add tofu, Tamari, and turmeric.
  5. Saute for a few minutes.
  6. Add vegetables, paprika, vinegar and black pepper to the tofu.
  7. Cook for 5 minutes or until the mixture thoroughly heats and flavors blend.
