Vegan Fried Rice

Pair this fried rice recipe with our Black Pepper Tofu recipe for a delicious meal.

The combo of tofu and beans will create a protein packed meal to help keep you feeling satisfied. 

To prepare the rice, cook it up according to the package directions.  In a separate bowl, scramble up the tofu with a fork until it resembles eggs.  In a large wok or pot, saute your onions, peppers, ginger, garlic, carrots, and tofu in a tablespoon of olive oil.  Once the rice is all cooked, slowly add it to the vegetable mixture and continue to cook.  If you need more oil, toss in another tablespoon.  Stir fry the rice until it appears crispy.  Add soy sauce and then add the seasoning to taste.  Mix in the bean sprouts and add in cilantro and scallions for garnish.

Top off with some sriracha or hot sauce for an extra kick to enhance this dish. I love this on those easy Friday nights with a cozy blanket and a movie binge after a long week.  Have you thought about throwing tofu into your fried rice? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

    Hi there,
    So glad I found your website. I am just wondering how many servings are in your recipes? I am doing the chili right now and I pan to do the rice very soon.
    Thanks, Joce
