Savoury Scrambled Tofu

 I tried different scrambled tofu recipes in the past but this one is my favorite. This recipe comes from the cookbook reFresh. The authors of this cookbook own several restaurants called Fresh. If you're lucky enough to go to a Fresh restaurant you must try their Tofu Tacos on a salad (no wraps they have gluten). They are so awesome!!!!!


1 Tbsp olive oil
1/3 cup onion, chopped
1 tsp garlic, chopped
2 cups firm tofu, drained/pressed*
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
1 pinch turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cups mushrooms, chopped and sautéed (optional)


Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic then sauté until translucent. Crumble the tofu with your hands and add to the pan. Cook for 2 minutes. Combine the yeast, garlic powder, turmeric, salt and pepper into a small bowl and add just enough water to form a thin sauce. Whisk with a fork to remove all lumps. Pour mixture onto tofu and stir frequently. Add sauteed mushrooms and cook until liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat.
