How to Make Tofu Fried Rice

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