There are many variations on this theme, and here is a nice simple one. It’s quick, it’s nutritious, it’s filling, and it’s delicious. Oh, and a very solid protein content, too!
1/2 pound firm tofu (a little more than half a package)
1 TBLSP nutritional yeast flakes
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
Pinch of salt
Several grinds of black pepper
1 TBLSP chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 mushrooms, sliced
1 green onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
Soy sauce or tamari (optional)
- Drain the tofu. Put it into a small bowl and mash it with a fork. You want smallish chunks. You could also dice it up, but I like the texture of the fork-mashing better.
- Stir in the yeast, turmeric, salt, pepper, and parsley
- Heat the oil in a small frying pan. Add the mushrooms, onion, and garlic, and sauté until they’re soft and a little brown around the edges.
- Add the tofu, stir and cook for 2-3 minutes, just to heat it through. Slosh with a little soy sauce or tamari, if you like.
Makes about 2 cups.
