How to make scrambled Tofu.
You will first drain all the water from the tofu. Place it between two clean towels or paper towels and squeeze out the water.
Cut the tofu in cubed sizes and transfer in a medium bowl. Mash it with a fork or spoon and add your flavorings such as turmeric, black pepper, cardamom, and nutritional yeast. Mix well and let sit for two minutes for the tofu to absorb the flavors.
Heat one tablespoon of oil in a skillet and add your mashed tofu then fry it for about five minutes on medium-high heat until it starts to dry up.
Add your chopped onions, minced garlic, and bell peppers. Keep frying, add salt mix, and cook well for another five minutes.
