Guest Recipe: Veganuary Fried Rice

Guest Recipe: Veganuary Fried Rice

This vegan fried rice is a great twist on a classic Chinese recipe – and perfect if you’re trying out Veganuary. This recipe uses roughly chopped tofu to create the same sort of consistency as egg, but it’s completely vegan!

B&M Top Tip: For best results, use a softer tofu, and cook the rice well in advance. The more time it has to dry before it’s added to the wok, the better; make it an hour or two before if you have the time. What's more, this mouth-watering recipe also uses gluten-free tamari soy sauce, so it’s safe for those with coeliac disease or a gluten intolerance too.

Ingredients

  • 150g basmati rice
  • 280g block of tofu (roughly chopped into small pieces)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 spring onion (chopped)
  • 75g tenderstem broccoli
  • 100g spring greens
  • 100g frozen peas
For the sauce
  • 1 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp gluten free tamari soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sriracha chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)

Method

  1. Cook the basmati rice as per pack instructions. Drain well and leave for 10-15 minutes before starting the rest of the recipe. The further in advance you can cook the rice and leave it to drain, the better (see above B&M Top Tip).
  2. Make the sauce by combining the peanut butter, soy sauce, sriracha, sesame seeds, sesame oil and garlic clove in a bowl and mixing well. Set aside.
  3. Add 1 tbsp sesame oil to a wok and heat until hot. Add the spring onion, tenderstem, spring greens and frozen peas to the wok and stir fry on a high heat for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Next add the tofu and mix through. Add the sauce and stir fry for a further 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add the rice, stir fry for a further 1-2 minutes and then serve straight away. Why not top with some extra spring onions, sesame seeds and sriracha?
