Spicy Salsa! Tofu Scramble

What you need: 

1/2 a small red onion
3/4 cup salsa
12 oz. extra firm tofu
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
olive oil (2 tablespoons or so)

What you do: 

Chop the onion up and throw into a pan with the olive oil. Saute over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
In a medium bowl, mix salsa, tofu, and turmeric. Pour mixture into pan with onion and saute for about 5-10 minutes, depending on how browned you like your tofu.
I really like this recipe because it's super-simple and super-yummy! I eat this more than anything else!

Preparation Time: 
5 minutes
Cooking Time: 


;)b  This so good and quick to make.  I added sauteed garlic as well. At the the end I topped with cilantro and onions.  I wasn't sure it was going to taste good with corn tortillas but I like it!  I just had some and it was tasty.


I'm eating this now and I have to say: This. Is. Fantastic~!  :)>>>

I added a couple of other good-smelling-but-unknown spicy spices (I was curious :oh:) and a bit of ketchup. As I said, it's fantastic, but I'm going to have to turn on a fan in a few because it's getting a little hot in here. The hotness shan't stop me though!  :>


This is my first time making scramble tofu, so good. Better than the one I had in restaurant.
Even my egg loving roommate liked it, too bad she could only eat a spoonful since I used hot salsa and she can't take heat.
She even asked for the recipe  ;)



I didn't use onion because the salsa already had enough .... at least for me.

I added some nutritional yeast.

Super quick and easy to make.

Thank You!

My stomach was satisfied!



I have made this the past two weekends! It's so yummy. I just used my own homemade salsa, which gave it a great taste. Thanks for posting! ;)b


yum!! i made a few alteration... much less onion (because i'm not a huge fan), curry powder instead of plain tumeric. i also added 1/2 tsp of goya seasoning and some basil. i ate this while my family was eating an egg/potato/bacon caserole and i didn't feel like i was missing out at all. they said it smeled really good too. quite tastey!


This was really simple and pretty good.  I only used about 2tsp of oil and 1/2 tsp of curry powder instead of tumeric ( I don't have any) but it turned out good and I will more than likely make again.


Are you supposed to squeeze all the water out of the tofu before you mix it with the other ingredients or just toss it in as is? :-[ I don't know things...


This was very simple and tasted really, really good in our breakfast burritos. Just put some of the tofu, along with 'sour cream' and hot Boca breakfast links, in a warm flour tortilla and it was delicious.


Oh my goodness!  This was so freakin good!  We were just going to have it one day, but ended up making two mornings in a row!  It doesn't look very filling, but we ate it with some toast and it was EXTREMELY filling!  My SO, who normally eats a lot of food, couldn't finish!  Well, at least now we have some leftovers for tomorrow morning!  VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY good!  I printed it out and put it in my cookbook, so I could constantly have it on hand. 

Oh, just a tip.  Try it with the Habanero and Lime salsa from TJ's.  I really liked it with that while my SO liked it with pace.
