  • 1 package extra firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon
  • dash of pepper

Serve with (optional):

  • toast
  • avocado slices
  • watermelon radish


  1. Drain and press your tofu.*
  2. Add your hemp seeds, water, nutritional yeast, salt, turmeric, lemon and pepper to a blender and blend on high until very smooth and creamy. (This works best with a high speed blender.) Set aside.
  3. Heat a skillet with olive oil over medium heat. Use your hands to crumble your tofu into the pan. Once crumbled, toss and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until everything is golden brown and warm.
  4. Take your tofu off the heat and toss it with your creamy hemp sauce until it is well coated.
  5. Serve with toast, avocado, and watermelon radish or eat plain.
  6. EAT UP.

Recipe Notes

*If you've never pressed tofu before, all you need to do is wrap it in a towel or layers of paper towels and set something heavy on top of it for a few minutes. This will help to release some of the water content and allow it to crisp up.
