Tofu Fried Rice
This is a very quick and flavorful version of "fried" rice that I make often when I have leftover rice in my refrigerator. Any vegetable cut into bite-sized pieces may be used in the recipe, depending on what you have available at various times of the year. We like to use a hot pepper sauce over the top of this dish, such as Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce or A Taste of Thai Garlic Chili Pepper Sauce.
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 10 min
1 Drain the tofu well and press out any excess water. Cut into cubes.
2 Combine the next 7 ingredients in a shallow bowl with a tight fitting lid. Add the tofu cubes and shake well to mix. Shake occasionally over the next few minutes as you are preparing the vegetables.
3 Place the cabbage, vegetables and green onions in a large saute pan or wok with the vegetable broth. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables soften slightly, about 5 minutes or so. Add the tofu and marinade and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in the rice and cook until heated through.
Hints: I almost always have shredded cabbage in my refrigerator because I like to add it to soups, stews and rice dishes. And I usually have frozen brown rice in my freezer as the base for a fast meal, so this meal can go together quite quickly. This is great with snow peas, asparagus, broccolini, broccoli, carrots, or even bell peppers. Cut your chosen vegetable into bite-sized pieces so they cook fairly quickly.
