Tofu Fried Rice

Tofu Fried Rice

A delicious, easy, and inexpensive meal or side dish. It's also very versatile. You can add almost anything to this and it will still taste awesome. Sometimes I will add 1/2 pound of pre-cooked, frozen and thawed mini shrimp from the grocery store when I'm not cooking for vegetarians. Since the shrimp are cold, I add them when I start to cook the rice. Anything recently cooked (like sauteed chicken) should go in when you add the soy sauce.

  1. Step 1

    Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. Step 2

    Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add tofu and saute until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    While the tofu is cooking, heat butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Pour beaten egg into the skillet; cook until egg is set, about 5 minutes. Chop egg into little pieces with a spatula; set aside.
  4. Step 4

    Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to a new, large saucepan over medium heat. Add rice, green onions, peas, and carrot; cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Stir in soy sauce, and add tofu and egg; cook until heated through, about 2 more minutes.
