  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 scallion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 package firm tofu, very well drained
  • 1 tablespoon very finely chopped parsley


In a small bowl, mix together nutritional yeast, turmeric, cumin, paprika, water, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

Mist a frying pan with olive oil and place it over medium heat. Once hot, add scallion and garlic, and saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Crumble tofu into the pan, breaking it up with your fingers. Pour seasoning over tofu and mix well, trying to color as much tofu as possible. Cook for 2 minutes or until tofu is hot throughout.

Toss in parsley and continue to stir for another 1 to 2 minutes.

Once cooked, serve with favorite sides and toppings, such as sliced avocado, whole-grain crackers or toast, sliced tomato, bacon (regular or meat-free), salsa, and/or hot sauce.
