Easy Vegan Fried Rice (with tofu)

Easy Vegan Fried Rice

Sometimes one just needs some fried rice. It’s so satisfying and comforting. What’s better than regular ol’ egg fried rice? Easy vegan fried rice with tofu! I know what you’re thinking, “Eggactly!” 😛

The combination of garlic, nutritional yeast, soy sauce and spices makes for such a spicy tangy and delicious meal! This easy vegan fried rice is eggcelent! (I’m sorry, I couldn’t help myself!). 

If you are gluten-free make sure you use a gf soy sauce. I usually use Braggs.

Ingredients
  1. 1 tbsp oil
  2. 2 cloves garlic
  3. 1/2 block tofu
  4. 1/2 tsp turmeric
  5. 1/2 tsp cumin
  6. 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  7. salt, to taste
  8. 1/4 tsp chilli powder, or to taste
  9. 1.5 cup veggies (I used frozen carrots, peas, and carrots)

  11. 3 green onions, chopped
  12. 1-2 tbsp soy sauce (I used Braggs)
  13. hot sauce, to taste
Instructions
  1. Drain tofu (I usually do this by placing it between 2 plates, putting something heavy on top, and letting it sit for about 10-20 minutes and then draining the excess water).
  2. Wash and cook the rice (add the rice with about 3 cups of water and cook over medium-high until done). Set aside.
  3. Using a large frying pan or skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
  4. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  5. Crumble the tofu and add.
  6. Add all the spices and nutritional yeast and mix well (it should turn yellow).
  7. Add the veggies and mix again.
  8. Add the cooked rice and mix again - yes there is a lot of mixing :).
  9. Add the green onions, soy sauce/braggs and hot sauce.
  10. Mix again.
  11. Enjoy!
