Macros per serving (just egg patties):

217 cals - 13g fat - 6g carbs - 19g protein 

For 27g protein add two slices whole wheat toast for roughly 8g protein.



  • 350g extra firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk, canned (see notes)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp water
  • option to add kala namak



Slice your brick of tofu into 6 rectangular pieces, set aside. In a bowl add: coconut milk, nutritional yeast, turmeric powder, salt, water, and if using a pinch of kala namak. Whisk to combine. Add the tofu rectangles to a flat bottom pan and pour the marinade over it, covering all the pieces.

Best method: set in the fridge overnight to marinate.

Optional method: Bake right away in a small dish so the marinade can cook into the tofu as best as possible OR pan fry in the marinade, allowing the tofu to soak up all the liquids. Tofu is done once golden.

Baking method: Bake at 350 F for 16-18 minutes or until golden. Panfry on medium low for 2-3 minutes each side. Serve on buttered toast, a bagel, or in a breakfast bowl!
