  • Drain the tofu and pat dry with a fresh dishtowel.
  • Put the tofu in a huge bowl and use a fork to mash it into irregularly shaped pieces.
  • Stir in the olive oil, turmeric powder, salt, and pepper.
  • In a non-stick pan, add garlic powder and cumin. Cook on a medium flame for a minute until it turns aromatic.
  • Mix in the tofu and increase the flame to a medium-high.
  • Cook for about 5-6 minutes, stir it occasionally until it is completely heated turning lightly brown.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately with toasted bread and top it with fresh parsley.

  • Pressing the tofu is very important as it allows the tofu to absorb more flavors and seasonings that are added. The more water you get out, the better-flavored tofu you get.
  • If you want a soft and minimal texture, use soft tofu. But if you want it to be firm and chewy, use extra-firm tofu. 
  • Tofu scramble also tastes great with all sorts of vegetables mixed in.
  • Omit oil if desired to make the tofu scramble oil-free.
  • If you're cooking it oil-free, use some water or vegetable stock instead.
