Tofu Fried Rice


Before you tell me you don’t like tofu, you can substitute out your favorite protein if tofu isn’t your fancy. I would candor that it’s worth a try. Most people don’t like tofu because of how it was prepared for them one time. Let’s give it a shot. You might surprise yourself. 
Prep Time: 30-45 minutes
Yield: 4-6 servings
4 cups Calrose Rice or sushi rice – you can make this with long grain white as well
2 blocks of Organic Extra Firm Tofu
Organic Tamari or Soy Sauce
1/4 bundle of Cilantro
1/4 cup peanuts
2 TBSP Sesame oil
Sesame Seeds
4 Eggs
3 TBSP lime juice

Prep Rice
Make rice according to instructions. I would estimate doing this about 30 minutes prior to starting the other prep items.

Steps 1-4 Tofu Fried RiceTofu prep: Lay a hand towel on the cutting board to cover it completely. Remove tofu from packets and place on cutting board. Slice into 3rds and lay the 6 pieces flat on the cutting board. Place another clean hand towel over the tofu and cover with a baking sheet or another cutting board. Place a heavy items on top for 15 minutes. This will expel water from the tofu allowing it to absorb the sauce better later.

Fried Rice Prep - Cilantro and Peanuts

Cut up peanuts and cilantro and set aside.

Prep sauce for tofu: 2 TBSP tamari, 1 TSP Sriracha, 1 TSP Sesame oil. Mix in a separate bowl.

Once the tofu has been prepped, slice individual tofu slices into squares. Add 1 tbsp sesame oil to a non-stick pan and heat. Add tofu. Pour sauce over the tofu and toss in the pan. Heat for 5-7 minutes on medium high.

Prepped Tofu & Sesame Seeds

Remove tofu and set aside. Scramble eggs in same pan (make sure to add some non-stick spray).

In a separate non-stick or stainless steel pan, add 2 TBSP sesame oil, cooked rice, and Tamari to taste. Slowly add in eggs, cilantro and sesame seeds to the mix. Continue to toss and mix in the pan gently on medium heat. Add tofu last.
