Fried Rice, Vegan

You will love this recipe, it’s full of veggies plus you can put anything in it really. I think what makes fried rice, fried rice is the sauce -delicious- it gives an extra something to the rice… –That’s my opinion!


  • 2 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp Sriracha sauce (optional)
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated finely
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 200 g / 7 oz firm or extra firm  tofu
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tbsp cornflour (optional)
  • 4-6 tsp neutral tasting oil 
  • 200 g / 7 oz  broccoli, chopped into equal size pieces
  • 100 g / 3.5 oz sugar snap peas 
  • 1 carrot, sliced thinly
  • 1 ear of corn, kernels shaved off with a sharp knife
  • 2 spring onions, sliced thinly
  • 3-4 cups  rice


  1. Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl, set aside.
  2. If using tofu, cube it and place it in a medium size bowl. Pour 2 tbsp of soy sauce (or tamari) over it. Mix well, allow it to marinate for 30 minutes or so, spooning the soy sauce over the exposed pieces now and then.
  3. If you intend to fry (rather than bake) your tofu, you could give it a light dusting (a small sieve or teas strainer is good for that) of cornstarch / cornflour just before frying.
  4. Heat up a large wok. Add 2 tsp of oil and allow it to get hot (almost smoking).
  5. Heat up a small frying pan. Add 2 tsp of oil and allow it to get hot. Pan fry the tofu until lightly charred on all sides. Alternatively, bake it in a 200° C / 390° F oven for about 20 minutes.
  6. Once the oil is hot, add the chopped kale or broccoli and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  7. After 2 minutes, push the veggies to the side of the wok and add another 2 tsp of oil. Allow it to heat up and follow it up with sugar snap peas, carrots, corn kernels and sliced spring onions. Stir-fry for another 2 minutes.
  8. Now toss in the cold rice and stir-fry until reheated.
  9. Stir in the sauce and baked or fried tofu cubes.
  10. Divide between two bowls and dress with extra Sriracha if you enjoy things a bit more spicy.

In this recipe, I didn’t put the sriracha but if you like your dish with a little bit of a twist I -def- recommend adding it. I did it the first time and it was very good. I think this recipe is best to make when you have leftover rice, you just need lots of vegetables and it’ll be good!
