  • Begin by squeezing the firm tofu slab with your hands or wrap it all up with paper kitchen towel & place a heavy weight on the tofu slab. You may keep it that way for at least 30 mins to squeeze all the moisture out.
  • Scramble the tofu with the help of a fork or your hand. Keep aside.
  • Next, heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add oil, when hot release the onions & saute until slightly translucent.
  • Next add all the veggies except the cilantro & scallions. Saute for 2-3 mins & then add the tofu seasoning mix (turmeric,nutritional yeast, paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin powder, salt) and mix well.
  • Now, add the cilantro & the scallions and mix very well. It's time to add the scrambled tofu.
  • Mix well until the tofu is well coated with the seasoning & the veggies.  Saute for 2-3 mins.
  • Switch off the flame & squeeze lemon juice. Garnish with more cilantro & scallion and serve hot. Enjoy!


  1. Use extra firm or firm tofu for this recipe.
