Scrambled Tofu in a Jar Recipe

Just a few years ago, mason jars were only used for canning. Now, it’s super-trendy to serve food in a jar and for good reason; they’re environmentally friendly, portable and food can look very appetising when stacked or piled in a jar.

Serves: 4



  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 400g firm tofu, crumbled
  • 2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 × ¼ cup water
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1 large head broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  1. Heat frying pan on medium heat. Add onion and sauté until golden brown. Add tofu, spices and ¼ cup water and sauté́ for 1 min.
  2. Add peas, broccoli and soy sauce. Add another ¼ cup water and stir. Stir constantly until tofu and vegetables are heated through and fragrant.
  3. Add parsley and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve by dividing scrambled tofu mixture into jars.
