Yellow Tofu

What you need: 

1/2 pound tofu, firm or soft (1 cup crumbled)
4 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon dried granulated onion
1 teaspoon dried granulated garlic
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon tamari
1 1/2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
freshly ground pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Crumble the tofu over the sink, squeezing out the excess water with your hands. Set it aside. In a medium-large skillet set to medium heat, add the oil and turmeric, and stir.
2. Add the other seasonings (salt, granulated onion and garlic, dill, tamari, nutritional yeast, and pepper) and stir well to combine with a heat proof spatula.
3. Add the tofu and mix it very well with the seasonings so that it’s thoroughly combined. Continue to cook, stirring often with the spatula, until the tofu becomes golden browned and slightly crusty (about 5-10 minutes).
Serve immediately. This is good with a hefty dose of hot sauce on it, too!
Here is a dish that I enjoy and make frequently for my daughter who regularly requests it (and who came up with the name). It’s very easy to make and full of antioxidants and B-vitamins from the turmeric and nutritional yeast. And, yes, very yellow.

lalamzo, have you seen this thread? You can review recipes from RHIW (and read other's reviews) here:;topicseen



I have RHIW but never made this recipe til i saw it here on vegweb. I love it and make it all the time. I've never used the dill and I've left out the nooch (I actually sort of prefer it without). And I like to saute some sliced squash or greens to mix in with the tofu. Yum!
