  1. On a cutting board or in a large bowl, crumble the tofu into small bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a small bowl, add the milk, nutritional yeast, turmeric, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Set aside
  3. In a large pan on medium-high heat, warm the olive oil, then add the crumbled tofu and cook, stirring frequently while further breaking it up with a wooden spoon or spatula, for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the milk and spice mixture to the pan, stir to mix into the tofu, and continue to cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the liquid mixture has cooked into the tofu and the tofu looks scrambled.
  5. Once cooked, remove from the heat, taste and season with additional salt and pepper as needed.
  6. Serve immediately on its own, with toast or allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
