No-Press Tofu for the WIN!

I love cooking with tofu, and the most amazing thing about this organic super firm tofu is that no pressing is required! Since Nasoya’s tofu is pre-pressed and vacuum sealed, you can use it right away: no waiting, draining, balancing a cutting board on top (my MO), or extra dirty dishes. It’s a convenient choice that can easily be prepared and enjoyed first thing in the morning.

I also made a demo recipe video you can watch on my Instagram page here:

What’s In This Gluten Free & Vegan Turmeric Tofu Breakfast Sandwich Recipe?

  • Nasoya Organic Super Firm Tofu: This tofu holds up better than any others I’ve tried, and is perfect for crumbling in this tofu scramble. Since it’s extra firm and pre-pressed, it doesn’t fall apart in the pan like other types of tofu can.
  • Olive Oil: for a little extra richness to the tofu
  • Turmeric: which gives this tofu a bright vibrant color, amazing flavor, and tons of added health benefits too!
  • Garlic Powder: for amazing flavor to this dish
  • Chili Powder: for a slightly smoky spice
  • Nutritional Yeast: not to be confused with baker’s yeast, nutritional yeast has a delicious cheesey and nutty flavor, and a flaky texture. It’s a great savory addition to tofu, stirred into soup or stews, and is excellent sprinkled over popcorn.
  • English Muffins: or any breakfast-sandwich vehicle of you choice. You can use bagels, toast, or even crumpets if you’re fancy. If you are gluten free, make sure you use a product that is certified gluten free.
  • Roasted Red Pepper: Gives this sandwich a bright fresh flavor, and pairs perfectly with the tofu.
  • Sprouts: I love to load ’em on! I used alfalfa sprouts, which give this breakfast sandwich the perfect crunch. Plus, spouts are a healthy way to add nutrition into your breakfasts.
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

How Do You Cook Tofu, Anyway?

While tofu may seem intimidating if you haven’t tried it, it’s actually a convenient and healthy protein option that easily takes on flavor and can be incorporated into a wide variety of simple meals: from sandwiches and salads to stir-frys and noodle dishes. By quickly seasoning tofu using your favorite sauces or spices, it becomes a flavorful, tasty addition to any meal. I sauteed mine with turmeric, chili powder, garlic powder, and nutritional yeast, which tasted delicious on top of an english muffin. If you are looking for new ways to prep tofu, Nasoya has a great Tofu Tips page on their site too!

Where Can You Buy Nasoya Organic Super Firm Tofu?

Because of it’s popularity, you can find Nasoya super firm tofu in the refrigerated produce section of almost any grocery store. They have it at my local Stop & Shop and Hannaford stores (for all you fellow New Englandahhhs). Aside from their tofu I’d recommend their shirataki noodles too, they are absolutely delish!
