Vegan tofu (not fried) rice


I made this yummy tofu rice stir fry last night and it was delish! Normally I fry the tofu but this time I baked it in the oven with a little tahini and it came out just as tasty. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups red rice (the more colourful your food, the better)
  • Firm tofu- 1 package 
  • Tahini- 2 tablespoons 
  • Broccoli- 1 cup chopped 
  • Mung bean sprouts- 1/2 cup
  • Mushrooms- 1/2 cup chopped 
  • Red cabbage- 1/2 cup chopped 
  • Pineapple chunks- 1/4 cup
  • Leek- 1/2 cup of half moons 
  • Red onion- 1/4 cup diced 
  • Garlic- 2 cloves minced
  • Tamari- 2 tablespoons 
  • Umeboshi plum paste- 1 tablespoon 
  • Spices: ginger, turmeric, pepper 

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 180C
  2. Press/pat dry tofu
  3. Cut tofu into cubes
  4. Spread a thin layer of tahini over tofu
  5. Bake tofu in oven for 20 minutes (you can use a little oil on pan to prevent sticking or use baking paper)
  6. While tofu is baking, chop your vegetables and stir fry with a bit of water
  7. Mix together tamari, umeboshi paste and spices and add to stir fry
  8. Add in rice, pineapple, and tofu
  9. Enjoy!
