Tofu Scramble

Tips for cooking with firm tofu! When you scramble or stir-fry or grill your tofu, having it pressed before cooking prevents too much water coming out and brings out more texture and flavour. Place the slices of firm tofu on top of kitchen towel and another paper towel on top. Put a heavy object like a plate or book on top of that for about 30 minutes while you are preparing other ingredients. After that, you can marinade or add spices to it.


1 block of firm tofu
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 small onion sliced
1/2 cup chopped kale (any kind of vegetables)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp curry powder
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
salt and pepper to taste
a drizzle of sesame oil to finish

Press the tofu as above. Cook garlic and onion with coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. You can stir in any kind of vegetables here, mushrooms, capsicum, broccoli, tomato, etc. Add diced firm tofu and spices. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes until all ingredients are mixed together. You can smudge the tofu with the back of the wooden spoon to make more scramble, but I left them intact. Add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to the plate and top with fresh kale or herbs.
