Ingredients

  • 1 12- ounce package extra-firm tofu drained and cut into 1" cubes
  • ¾ cup brown rice
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • ¼ cup tamari soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • ½ cup vertically sliced onion
  • cup frozen peas
  • ½ cup thinly sliced carrot about 1 large carrot
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoon thinly sliced green onion

Instructions

  • Heat the oven. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Cook the rice. Add the rice and water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat, simmer for 35-40 minutes until rice is tender (check package directions for the ultimate cooking time as I've found it varies depending on the type of brown rice I'm using).
  • Bake the tofu. While the rice is cooking, line a baking sheet with parchment paper; place tofu on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes.
  • Make the sauce. Combine soy, vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, sugar and garlic in a small bowl; whisk together. Set aside.
  • Make the stir fry. When both tofu and rice are done, heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu, and cook for 4-5 minutes, browning on all sides. Add peas, onion and carrots, cook for 2 minutes. Add rice and egg, cook for 1 minute, stirring continually. Add tamari mixture and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Serve. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon of green onion. Serve immediately.
