  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 color bell pepper, cut into 1/8 strips
  • 2 ounce sliced mushrooms
  • 1 block (16 ounces) firm tofu, drained and cubed
  • 1/4 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder ~ optional for some heat
  • sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped


In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the pepper and mushrooms, and cook for about 4 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally.

Increase the heat to high and cook for 2 minutes, stirring until any liquid in the pan evaporates. Add the tofu, scallions, curry powder, turmeric, salt and pepper to taste. Reduce the heat to low, and cook for about 4 minutes, or until heated through.

Stir in the parsley.
