Last spring, I fell in love with Trader Joe’s Japanese Style Frozen Fried Rice. Convenient, inexpensive & full of healthy ingredients.
I also love how the Trader Joe’s website allows you to search for product by category.
- Just click on the category that you’re looking for and you’ll see all their products listed by subcategory: Cakes, drinks, Grains, Cooking Supplies, Etc. 4 Full pages of “Vegan” products! 🙂 We like that !!!
For quick and easy ‘Vegan’ fried Tofu:
1 Package of Super Firm Tofu, drained and pressed ( I used paper towels to soak up more liquid)
Oil for frying
2 Cups of Panko style Bread Crumbs
3 Tbs. of Ground Flax Seed mixed with 9 Tbs. of Water
Garlic Powder, Sea Salt & Crushed Red Pepper
Remove as much liquid from the tofu as possible and cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
Mix 1 tsp. each Garlic Powder, Sea Salt & Red Pepper into the Flax/Water mixture.
Heat oil to medium high heat in a fry pan. Oil should be about the same height as the
Dip batches of tofu cubes in the Egg Substitute ( Flax and Water).
Transfer cubes to a shallow bowl filled with the Panko. Coat each cube pressing the
bread crumbs into the tofo. Carefully drop tofu cubes into the oil. Brown both sides and
remove from oil onto paper towels or wire rack to drain. Sprinkle with additional salt
to taste (I didn’t need any more on mine).
For fresh veggie rice, saute vegetables until softening and add in 1 -2 bags of frozen Trader Joe’s Japanese style Fried Rice. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until fried rice is warm. Stir in fried tofu before serving. Tastes great reheated as well 🙂
For more great ‘vegan’ substitution ideas like these ‘flax eggs’ for your recipes please check out the ‘Substitutions’ page at anunrefinedvegan.com.
This is definitely a meal on its own but would pair up with egg rolls, some Miso soup, any light side dish.
Or just eat more and more of the rice alone like I did…….. 🙂
Healthy Fun Food!
Enjoy homemade healthy food. It’s good for your body. It’s good for your family.
