About 15 years ago, Dr. Andrew Weil surprised Oprah audiences with a delicious and healthy tofu scramble. This recipe is adapted just a touch from his formula. And it is flexible. You can add herbs (like dried basil and oregano) or spices (like cumin and paprika), and even some nutritional yeast for flavor variations.
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • ½ cup minced yellow or white onion
  • ¼ cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound firm or extra-firm tofu (organic or non-GMO), drained and crumbled
  • ¾ cup sliced green onions (green parts only)
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce or wheat-free tamari (for gluten-free)
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Salsa, for serving (optional)
  • Warm corn tortillas, for serving (optional)
  1. Drain and crumble the tofu.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and red pepper and saute for 3 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic and saute 1 minute.
  3. Stir in the crumbled tofu. Then stir in the green onions, soy sauce, turmeric (if using), salt, and black pepper. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Serve with salsa and warm corn tortillas, if desired.
