Hello there, friends! Did you watch my latest video? My recipe for veggie fried rice is the perfect way to use up some of those fridge essentials. Feel free to use your favorite veggies and nuts (or whatever is on hand). Make the rice ahead of time and this recipe comes together in well under 30 minutes. Let me know what you think.
Veggie Fried Rice
2 C cooked brown rice
2 C diced veggies; onions, asparagus, corn, bell pepper, carrots, broccoli etc.
1/4 C tamari, soy sauce, bragg’s aminos or coconut aminos
1 14 oz firm tofu; drained & dice to 1 inch cubes
1/4 C nuts; cashews, peanuts or almonds work best
2 tsp sesame oil (optional)
Drain and press your tofu (optional) before dicing. Place tofu in a large bowl and add 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce and set aside to marinate. In a large skillet, warm on medium heat with a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add your vegetables and saute for a few minutes until soft. Add in your nuts for a few minutes until they start to get some color. Add in your rice and toss together. Press down gently with the back of your spoon for another couple of minutes. Gently toss in the tofu and soy sauce along with an additional 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until everything is warmed through. Drizzle in the sesame oil if using and serve. Enjoy!
