Quinoa Fried Rice

A few weeks ago, I threw together a few ingredients to make a “Quinoa Fried Rice” of sorts and, since then, have dubbed it my favorite thing to make each week.

It’s SO easy to make in bulk on Sunday to allow for several meals throughout the week. It’s ALSO #MeatlessMonday friendly for all you fad fans.

Ingredients: 

  • Nasoya Organic Firm Tofu (cut in cubes)
  • 5-7 eggs/egg-whites
  • brown rice or quinoa
  • one head of cabbage
  • chopped onions
  • minced garlic
  • soy sauce
  • Sriracha (duh)
  • any other veggies you want to throw in (frozen veggies work too!)

Directions: 

  1. Drizzle some olive oil in a pan. Throw in the garlic and onion until it browns. Add the cubed tofu.
  2. Add in the chopped veggies. Drizzle some soy sauce and Sriracha on top.
  3. In a separate pan, scramble eggs. Add soy sauce.
  4. In a separate pot (or rice cooker), make the rice. (I chose quinoa for this instead of the brown rice pictured above).
  5. When all is done, mix it together. Drizzle with additional soy sauce and Sriracha.

Notes: 

  • You use a lot of pans. Get over it.
  • You get to use a lot of Tupperware too. Because it makes a TON of food.
  • I’m a fan of tofu. Nasoya’s Firm Tofu is my favorite so far. It’s easy to cut without being too wiggly.
  • This definitely satisfies my fried rice craving without sacrificing any taste.

The best part about Nasoya Tofu is that it is naturally rich in protein and antioxidants. It’s organic and Non-GMO Project verified as well as gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian/vegan friendly! What’s not to love?
