Roasted Tofu and Veggie Fried Rice is a quick, go-to recipe that is packed with nutrients and flavor.
14 oz extra firm tofu, pressed and cubed
5 cups broccoli florets
5 carrots, sliced
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ onion, diced
3 cups cooked rice (white or brown)
3 large eggs
½ cup frozen peas
2–3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Spread out the broccoli and carrots on one baking sheet and the tofu on the other baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the veggies and 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the tofu and sprinkle salt and pepper on both. Toss to coat. Roast for 25-30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and the tofu is golden.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the rice and stir to combine. Create a hole in the center of the pan and add the eggs. Cook them as scrambled eggs in the center of the rice, then stir to combine. Add the roasted vegetables, tofu and peas and stir to combine. Remove from the heat.
- Drizzle the top with soy sauce and sesame oil and stir to combine.
