Makes 4 Servings

  • tofu, extra firm (light or low-fat when possible) (14-16 ounces)
  • garlic, minced (1 clove)
  • onion, diced (1/2 cup)
  • green pepper, diced (1/2 cup)

  • cumin powder (1 teaspoon)
  • black pepper (3/4 teaspoon)
  • salt (1 teaspoon)


  1. Add 1/4 cup water to large sauté pan. Once heated, add onion.

  2. When the aroma releases from the onion and it starts to become translucent, add garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, add peppers and mushrooms and add 1/4 cup water if vegetables are sticking to the pan. Cook for about 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

  3. Crumble tofu with hands and add to pan along with turmeric, mixing well. Add cumin powder, pepper, and salt, and cook for another 4-6 minutes until everything is cooked through.
