Scrambled Tofu

This sandwich topping is tasty, cheap, and easy. I don't use tofu often because it's hard to marinate and becomes dry when fried. Scrambling to the rescue!

  1. Cut 1 pack of tofu (375g) in 8 cubes.
  2. Squeeze each block in your fist so the water drains.
  3. Crumble the tofu between your fingers and set aside.
  4. Cut 2 cloves of garlic and 2 onions into small pieces.
  5. Heat some oil and fry the onion and garlic.
  6. Add the crumbled tofu and bake for another 5 minutes.
  7. Add 1 tbsp tomato paste, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp curry powder, 1 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp smoked paprika powder and an optional ½ tsp salt.
  8. Thoroughly mix and heat for another minute.


  • Optional: add 100g baby spinach and heat until the spinach has shrunk.
  • Serving suggestion: make a base layer with a little bit of hummus, avocado and your favorite spicy sauce. Top off with some ketchup.
