  • Summary

    Typically restaurant-style fried rice is made with eggs and a lot of oil. This vegan version only uses 2 tsp of oil, is egg-free and high in protein thanks to organic tofu and cashews. If you make the rice ahead of time, it comes together in no time for a quick and easy, healthy weeknight dinner.

    Ingredients

    • ½ cup vegetable stock
    • 2 tsp cornstarch
    • 1 tbsp soy sauce
    • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
    • 1 package organic extra-firm tofu, preferably pressed for 20-30 minutes
    • 1 red pepper, diced
    • 1 jalapeno, diced
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tsp curry powder
    • 6 scallions, green parts only, chopped
    • ¾ cup raw cashews
    • 2 cups cooked brown rice
    • cilantro for serving
