Looking for a quick, but healthy mid-week meal?
Well look no further. This humble bowl of Vegan "egg" fried rice, is the perfect weekday meal. Why? Well it's super easy-to-make, packed with protein, and extremely flavourful.
I'm sure after you've made this "egg" fried rice once, you'll be making it again, at least once a week.
See below for the full recipe and step-by-step cooking video.
3 tbl Minced Pimentos (or finely diced)
1 Tbl Sesame oil
2 Blocks of Extra Firm Silken Tofu, drained and mashed
2 Cup Peas and Carrots (I used frozen)
Seasoned Sesame-soy sauce (link below for the recipe)
1/4- 1/2 tsp Turmeric
4 Cups Cooked Rice (I used basmati rice)
Heat a pan or wok on medium heat, coat with sesame oil, heat, then toss in pimentos.
Saute for a minute until fragrant, add mashed tofu, and cook for approximately 5 minutes, while stirring in-between.
Add peas and carrots, cook for another 2 minutes, then add your cooked rice. Stir to combine.
Add your seasoned Sesame soy sauce and Turmeric, mix until rice is properly coated, allow to cook for another 2 to 5 minutes, stirring in-between. Season with salt. Remove from heat and serve.
Serve with a garnish of fresh chive, peppers or sirarcha.
