Fried rice is always a winner. It’s easy to make and it tastes so good, that you always want more. Normally fried rice is made with egg, but I used tofu instead. If you’d ask me, I think it’s even tastier.
For the rice I used a mixture of white and black rice, but you can use any rice you like. You can add more or other vegetables, but I chose red bell pepper and peas. I think these 2 go so well with fried rice and also just because it looks so nice with the beautiful dark purple coloured rice. Now who’s in for some colourful goodness?!
1 cup rice (cooked)
75 gr tofu
1/2 bell pepper (chopped)
1/2 cup peas
1/2 onion (chopped)
2 tbsp peanuts (chopped)
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1/8 tsp turmeric
salt/pepper (to taste)
-Cook the rice as described on the pack.
-Crumble the tofu together with a bit of olive oil and the turmeric and salt in a frying pan and fry this for about 5 min on high fire.
-Add the onion and fry again for about 5-10 minutes.
-Add the bell pepper, the spring onion, the peanuts, the soy sauce, the sesame oil and the coriander and fry for about 2 minutes.
-Mix in the rice and put salt and pepper to taste. Fry for about 5 minutes.
-Serve and sprinkle some extra peanuts and spring onion on top.
