Recipe: Tofu Scramble

I was scrolling through some recipes and I came across this one. I had all of the ingredients (almost), so I decided to give it ago. I added a few extra veges to use up what had in the fridge.


500 Grams (14 Ounce) of Firm Tofu
3-4 Tablespoons of Tamari or Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons of Sesame Oil
¼ Cup of Nutritional Yeast (also known as Savoury Yeast)
¼ Teaspoon of Garlic Powder
¼ Teaspoon of Salt
¼ Teaspoon of Tumeric
½ Teaspoon Ground Cumin

1 Small Yellow Onion, diced
¼ a Cup of Red Capsicum, diced
5-6 Large Sun-Dried Tomatoes, chopped into small pieces (the kind that are lightly seasoned, packed in olive oil – don’t use the dry ones!)
2 Cups of Washed Baby Spinach
10 Mushrooms, sliced
Plus additional Sesame Oil, Soy Sauce and Nutritional Yeast (to taste)


Put Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil, Nutritional Yeast, Garlic Powder, Tumeric and Cumin in a large mixing bowl and combine.

Squeeze excess liquid out of Tofu and crumble into pieces. Add to the mixing bowl and coat thoroughly with sauce.

Pit a little vegetable oil in a large frying pan/wok and heat. Add Tofu mixture and fry for about 10 minutes.


The Marinated Tofu

Place cooked tofu in a clean bowl and add a little more oil to the pan and add the vegetables.


The Veges

Cook until tender, then add in the Tofu. Combine.

Taste and add Sesame Oil, Soy Sauce and Nutritional Yeast to taste.


Ready to eat!

Verdict: Not bad. I think there was too much soy sauce, which made it a little too strong in both colour and flavour. For some reason it had a bitter flavour.
