(Not Your Normal) Fried Rice
Fried rice is traditionally greasy and egg covered. Ick.
We decided to try making a fried rice we could feel good about, one that wasn't so mutually unhealthy and damaging.
We used just onions and corn in ours for veggies (Alex can't stand peas for some reason), but they compliment the rice really nicely!
1 cup of cooked brown rice
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup corn
2 tablespoons soy sauce
4 ounces extra firm tofu, strained and crumbled
1-2 teaspoons coconut oil for frying
Add minced garlic, chopped onion and coconut oil in a large skillet or wok.
Sauté over medium heat until onions become translucent.
Add crumbled tofu and stir.
Stir in one tablespoon of soy sauce.
Turning the heat to medium-high, add the cooked rice, corn, and remaining soy sauce and stir to combine everything.
Cook for about 5 minutes, or until rice begins crackling.
Refrigerate leftovers. Enjoy!
