  1. Press the excess water out of the tofu: Place tofu on a flat surface and lay a dry dishtowel on top of the tofu. Gently press down on the towel with your hands or a heavy book to remove any the water.
  2. In a pan over medium heat, sauté the garlic with optional vegetables and a little water. Crumble the tofu with your hands into the pan. Add the soy sauce, turmeric, and butter-flavored salt. Sauté the mixture until heated through and the tofu is evenly coated.
