Sesame ‘egg’ fried rice

3 Nov

When I say egg, I really mean ‘silken tofu’. Don’t you?

This is our interpretation of the greasy Chinese classic. Super quick when you’ve got leftover rice and entirely yummy.

‘Egg’ fried rice

  • 1.5 C cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 head broccoli
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 125g silken tofu, mashed with a fork
  • 1.5 tsp sesame oil
  • 2.5 TBSP tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 tsp mirin or lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2cm piece of ginger, grated

Mix ginger, garlic and liquids in a glass.

Throw broccoli into wok with a little bit of light vegetable oil, and cook for a minute or two. Add cooked rice, heat through, then throw in mashed tofu and spinach. Stir around for another minute or two, adding the sauce from the glass.

Done. Yes, done.
