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:

- 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 & Chili Powder
- Nutritional Yeast: not to be confused with bread baking yeast, nutritional yeast has a cheesy nutty umami flavor which is great in all kinds of dishes – I even sprinkle it on fresh popped pop corn and WOW! Also great in soups and sauces of all kinds.
- 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.
Grow Sprouts Indoors for A Nutritious Crunch All Year Long!
I grow my own sprouts all year long on my kitchen counters… and believe me, it couldn’t be easier! All you need are some sprouting seeds (I like these alfalfa seeds, and these bean sprouts), wide-mouth mason jars, sprouting lids, and some tap water. An endless supply of sprouts will be at your culinary fingertips anytime.
I love grabbing a handful of alfalfa sprouts to add to a sandwich or a wrap, or adding a handful of bean sprouts to stir fries or ramen soup. I put together a list of all my favorite sprouting supplies – so you can enjoy fresh sprouts any time!
How Do You Cook Tofu?
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-fry’s 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!
How Do I Make This High Protein Tofu Breakfast Sandwich?
- In a frying pan, mash the tofu with a fork and begin to sauté over low heat.
- Add the olive oil, turmeric, chili powder, garlic powder, and nutritional yeast. Sauté on low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring well to combine. Taste, and add salt and pepper if desired.
- Toast the English muffins, and top each one with 1/2 cup of the tofu. Add a slice of roasted red pepper and top with sprouts. Mangia!
