If the tofu is pressed properly, The Perfect Pressed Tofu for Grilling, Baking, or Cooking in a Skillet, tofu takes on the flavors of whatever spices you use. In order to make the perfect scramble, not only do you need to press the tofu, but using a fork, you crumble it in a bowl. Then, add Turmeric and other spices. The Turmeric turns the tofu yellow just like eggs, but no worries, it tastes like tofu.
