  • ¼ cup vegetable stock or water
  • 1 block of silken tofu or regular tofu
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes diced
  • 2 cups leaf spinach
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder


  • Heat ¼ cup of vegetable stock in a large skillet. Add diced onions. Cook for about 3-5 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add chopped peppers. Stir to combine and cook an additional two minutes.
  • Push onions and peppers to the side of the skillet. Drain water from the block of tofu. Add the whole block of tofu to the skillet. Using a spatula break the tofu up into small chunks. Starting with cutting it into thin pieces, and then breaking it up into bite size pieces.
  • Add the turmeric, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine. Add chopped tomatoes, and spinach. Cover and steam the spinach for 5 minutes. Remove lid, stir to combine, and serve!



Note: Nutrition facts are an estimate.
  • Silken tofu does not require pressing. It is delicate, so handle with care.
  • If you prefer a "harder" scramble, use regular firm tofu. 
  • Be sure to drain any water from your tofu before adding it to the skillet. Some silken tofu comes in water, some does not, so it depends on the type that you have.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.  Reheat in the microwave or on the skillet.
  • If you have it add a ¼ tsp of kala namak, black salt. It will give your scramble an egg-y flavor.
  • Add 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor.
