I'm always looking for a good tofu recipe and I like the way the turmeric makes this look like real eggs. Try this, you just may like it!!!

Instead of the first 5 steps I wrapped the tofu in paper towels then placed a heavy plate on it to release the liquid. then cut it up. I skipped the chives. The fresh herbs were just wonderful.Thanks for a great way to enjoy tofu!
