This tasty scrambled turmeric tofu recipe is a fantastic vegan alternative to scrambled eggs. Tofu provides a good dose of the important bone-building minerals, calcium and phosphorus. It also contains high levels of isoflavones, a type of phyto-oestrogen associated with improving menopausal symptoms and lowering the risk of osteoporosis. Always choose organic tofu that’s free from genetically modified soybeans.

Serves: 2



  • 250g organic firm tofu
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp sweet paprika
  • Pinch sea salt & pepper
  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes
