  • How to Make Tofu Fried Rice:

    1. Place tofu in the freezer and allow to freeze overnight. Allow to thaw completely.
    2. The freezing process changes the texture to a more chewy texture without sacrificing flavour.
    3. Squeeze the water out by setting a weight on top of it.
    4. Cube into 1/2 inch blocks and toss into a ziplock bag with the marinade.
    5. Stir-fry the remaining ingredients.
    6. Throw in the marinated tofu.
    7. Use the marinade to flavor the rest of the ingredients.
    8. Toss the above with approximately 8 cups of cooked rice.
    9. Serve in rice bowels with garnishes available to each person's tastes.
