scrambled tofu mixed with bell peppers and onions

Full of Flavorful Seasonings

Pressing firm tofu under a weighted plate guarantees that your scramble won’t become a watery mess. Since tofu (low-calorie, high-protein soybean curd) is known to absorb flavors, don’t be shy with your seasonings. The combination of earthy turmeric — a spice with great nutritional benefit — and soy sauce heightens the savory nature of tofu and is reminiscent of meat. For a more scrambled egg-like consistency, try using silken tofu instead of firm, or get extra-firm and use instead of ground meat.
