Bolognese-style Tofu

(Yields 5 serving; 135 kcal, 8.9g fat, 10.6g protein, 4.2g carb per serving)


  • 2 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 block extra-firm tofu, drained


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a latch baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix nutrition yeast, soy sauce, olive oil, chili powder, and garlic powder into a paste in a large bowl.
  3. Crumble the block of tofu into small pieces into bowl of seasoning. Mix tofu crumbles with seasoning, making sure it’s evenly coated.
  4. Spread tofu out evenly over baking sheet. Avoid large clumps of tofu to ensure it bakes evenly.
  5. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, stopping to stir tofu every 15 minutes or so.
  6. Keep an eye on tofu during the last 5-10 minutes to make sure it does not burn. Smaller crumbles will be a deeper brown that larger ones, but this adds texture so it’s okay.
  7. Add to pasta sauce, tacos, or any other dishes you might use crumbled beef in!
