Tofu and Mushroom Omelette ★★★★★1 review

From Zoe's food journal.

Serves 4 | Prep time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 20 mins


  • 450g / 16oz of tofu
  • little bit of water
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (aka. nooch)
  • half a small onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • half a zucchini
  • mushrooms (as many as you want)
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • sprinkle of paprika
  • salt & pepper
  • optional herbs, spices and liquid smoke
  • optional vegan cheese


  1. Put 450g / 16oz of firm tofu (you can use a softer one and you won’t need as much water) in the food processor (a blender works fine too) and process it until it is starting to go crumbly.
  2. Add a little bit of water until it is like a very thick cream then add about a quarter cup of nutritional yeast (or ‘nooch’ as some call it!) and blend the mixture again (often I add vegan cheese if I have some handy).
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste, a teaspoon of turmeric and any other of your favourite spices or herbs- normally I would add a drop of liquid smoke but I couldn’t find it in my messy cupboard!
  4. Sauté some onion and 2 cloves of garlic with half a zucchini until soft. You can either roast your mushrooms or you could sauté them with the zucchini, garlic and onion.
  5. Pour the tofu mix into a cast iron pan (or any baking pan lined with baking paper) and then place the veggies on top and gently mix in. I sprinkled a little smoked paprika on top but any spice you like will work beautifully.
  6. I was in a rush for it to cook as my partner was almost home so I cranked the oven to 220C / 430F and it was ready in under 20 mins, as soon as it starts to brown it is ready!

    Great recipe, I did it in the frying pan but could have done with cooking it for longer.
