Recipe: Vegan Egg Fried Rice

Ingredients
  • 1 cup of cooked rice (We used Thai Jasmine rice. You can also use Basmati rice for a drier / less sticky rice; or the brown Jasmine rice for a more wholesome version.)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or 4 tbsp vegetable broth/water
  • 1 block firm tofu
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Thumb sized piece of ginger (optional)
  • 1 ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 ½ tsp black salt ‘kala namak’ (this "egg-flavoured" salt is essential to achieve the egg-y taste)
  • 1 ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (optional)
Mixed veg (you can use whatever you have) we used:
  • 2 tomatoes cubed
  • Half broccoli cut into small florets
  • ½ tin sweetcorn
  • ½ tin baby carrots (or finely chopped regular carrots)
  • ½ cup black eyed peas, soak overnight or for 12 hours ideally 
Method
  1. Fry the onion, garlic cloves and ginger in either the oil or vegetable broth (water also works fine) for 5 minutes until soft
  2. While this is cooking, chop your block of firm tofu into squares and then mash with either a potato masher or a fork until it resembles scramble!
  3. Add this to the pan, along with the turmeric, garlic powder, black salt, sea salt and black pepper (add more oil/broth if it has dried)
  4. Cook for 6-7 minutes until soft
  5. Add in the mixed veg - stir and cook for 5-6 minutes
  6. While this is cooking slowly add in the cooked rice
  7. Taste and add in an extra tsp of each of the seasonings if required
  8. Once it is all combined, it is ready to enjoy!
