  • 400 g firm tofu pressed and roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes (or to taste)
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast optional
  • 15 g fresh coriander finely chopped
  • Pinch sea salt


  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat.

  • Add the garlic, cook for a further minute, then add the chilli, turmeric and cumin powder. Stir.
  • Add the tofu. Break it down with a potato masher or with the back of a wooden spoon and mix well so that the onion mixture is well combined.
