Raising Vegan Tip- Nutritional yeast is a complete protein and contains fiber. It is also an excellent source for vitamin B-12, along with many other essential vitamins. Use it as a topping to salads or pasta dishes, to substitute for cheese.
Drain and pat dry the extra firm tofu and set aside. In a small bowl mix nutritional yeast, turmeric, cumin, onion powder, black pepper and water. Saute garlic in a pan on medium heat. Add crumbled tofu (use your hands to crumble) into the pan and pour the spice mixture over the tofu. Mix to ensure the tofu is covered evenly with the mixture. Cook on medium stirring often for ~ 5 minutes to warm tofu evenly. Sprinkle parsley over and serve.
*If you prefer your scramble to be more “runny” simply skip the drying step of the tofu.
