The preparation step-by-step with photos
Step 1: Crumble the tofu into small pieces and add the spices, soy sauce, and nutritional yeast. Mix to coat the tofu well and set aside for 10 minutes.
Step 2: Cook onions, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden, about 5 minutes.
Add the bell pepper and cook for two more minutes.
Step 3: Add the tofu and cook for about 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the tofu begins to dry out and crisp in spots.
Extra-firm tofu or firm tofu is the way to go.
Remove the tofu from the packaging and wrap it in a clean dish towel. Place the wrapped tofu between two cutting boards with a few cans on top. Leave to rest for about 15 minutes. You will notice the water dripping from the tofu. There are also tofu presses on the market if you prefer.
Use your hands to crumble the tofu into a bowl; mix with spices (ground turmeric will give your a golden hue). Mix until well-coated. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.
