  • 14 oz tofu firm
  • 1 red onion diced (small)
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Jalapeño pepper minced
  • 1 Tbsp Nutritional yeast optional
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1-2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp salt more or less to your taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Drain out as much water as possible from the tofu and crumble it with your fingers or use a fork and set aside.
  • Heat a pan or skillet to medium-high heat and sauté onion, bell peppers, and Jalapeno peppers for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the tofu, turmeric, salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast (if using) Use a wooden spoon or spatula to mix and crumble the tofu while cooking it and leave to cook for about 5 to 8 minutes or until tofu is well heated through and has absorbed all the flavors.
  • Serve hot


Be careful not to overcook tofu, as it will dry out and not taste very good. It’s best to have your scrambled tofu cooked to a moist, light, and fluffy texture just like scrambled eggs.
