Spicy Salsa! Tofu Scramble

What you need: 

1/2 a small red onion
3/4 cup salsa
12 oz. extra firm tofu
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
olive oil (2 tablespoons or so)

What you do: 

Chop the onion up and throw into a pan with the olive oil. Saute over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
In a medium bowl, mix salsa, tofu, and turmeric. Pour mixture into pan with onion and saute for about 5-10 minutes, depending on how browned you like your tofu.
I really like this recipe because it's super-simple and super-yummy! I eat this more than anything else!

Preparation Time: 
5 minutes
Cooking Time: 


When I make this, I also add some garlic and 1/2 a bag or so of frozen "pepper stir-fry", which is just onions and red, green and yellow peppers.  Makes it look really pretty.  This is so good that I've taken it to omni pot lucks and had everyone rave about the amazing "eggs">  Even after i tell them it's not eggs but tofu, they still want the recipe! ;)b


Yummy!  I didn't have any onion on hand so I used green onion and threw in some baby bella mushrooms.  Followed the rest of the recipe to the letter and it came out fantastic.  If you haven't made a tofu scramble before, don't panic when you first start cooking it because it will be slightly soupy -- the water will evaporate off.  I never liked eggs or scrambled eggs when I  used to eat eggs so I have never been fond of tofu scrambles until now.  It was quick and easy to make and tasted really good.  I will definitely use this recipe again.


I followed this recipe exactly and it turned out great. So easy. I usually put soy sauce in all my tofu scrambles but decided not to this time. I wanted to stick with the recipe and it was super good! I ate it with chopped cherub tomatoes and cayenne pepper for an extra kick. Very good. This might be my new favorite tofu scramble. Thanks! ;)b
