Delicious Vegetarian Fried Rice is a great way to get grains and fresh vegetables into our diet. A healthy recipe with taste for all to enjoy! This dish is a great complement with many of the meat-textured grain foods, for example, meatballs, baked tofu sticks, or barbecued tofu. This is a great way to get brown rice, which contain more nutrients, into your meals. If possible, use leftover rice. Cold rice works better in stir-fries.
3 cups of brown rice (leftover rice is best)
½ cup of diced carrots (fresh or frozen)
½ cup of peas (fresh or frozen)
2 cups of broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)
½ cup snow peas
1 tsp. fresh garlic, chopped fine
1 tsp. garlic powder
3 tbsp. canola, peanut, or sesame oil
Add 2 scallions or 1 small onion, chopped, and/or ½ cup shredded cabbage
Add ½ cup of firm tofu
In a wok or large skillet, heat 2 tbsp. of oil on medium heat.
Add garlic and onions. Toss for 1 minute.
Add remaining vegetables and toss to get them coated. (Add more oil if needed.) Sprinkle garlic powder directly onto broccoli.
Add half of the tamari and toss. Cover and cook for about 3 minutes or until vegetables are crunchy. (Do not overcook.)
Pour into a serving dish, set aside, and return wok back to the stove.
Add remaining oil. Let it heat and add rice and remaining tamari. Toss continuously to prevent sticking.
Add vegetables back into pan, tossing and mixing well.
Mix until rice is thoroughly heated.
