Yin & Yang Turmeric Tofu



  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 hot paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • a bit of water to mix
  • 280g tofu (soft or firm)
  • 2 cups of kale
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 pepper


Heat 1/2 tsp olive oil in a pan or use 1kcal oil spray. Drain the tofu and crumble it onto a pan. Pour the spice mix over the tofu and fry on high heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to allow it to soak in the flavours and colours.

Tip: If you cook it a bit longer, you can even brown soft tofu and give it a slightly crispy exterior while it remains soft on the inside. It’s incredibly tasty.

Add chopped onion (if using) and pepper and fry for a few more minutes. You can add kale to the scramble or blanche it separately like I did. Just clean the pan (I used a wok this time), add a generous amount of kale plus a splash of water. 1-2 minutes is all you need to prepare the kale – you’ll be able to tell from the colour of the leaves as they’ll quickly turn into a vibrant shade of green.

This gorgeous and colourful dish will be ready in under 10 minutes. Enjoy!
