Fried Rice ~ An Inauthentic but Delicious Recipe

This recipe is not very authentic, but it is delicious and it has a Cuban twist! (Recipe for one)

Arroz Frito

1/2 Cup Uncooked Rice (If brown, use Trader Joe’s quick cook  basmati)
1 Clove Garlic
Olive Oil
1/5 Block Tofu
Canola Oil
A drop of Trader Joe’s Veggie Broth
1/2 tsp Just Mayo (very important)
Kala Namak
Goya Garlic Powder


Follow Your Heart Vegan Egg
Soy sauce
Earth Balance
Sesame Oil


Cook rice according to package instructions. Include the clove of garlic, scored, and a circle or two of olive oil. Cook rice as far in advance as you can and put it in the fridge. Fried rice works best with old, dry rice.


Mince tofu into pan, add rest of egg ingredients and mix and mince thoroughly. Cook on medium-low heat and then let sit on low.

Sauce and finish

In pan, combine cooked rice, soy sauce to taste, 2-3 tablespoons of Earth Balance, and 1-2 drops of sesame oil (toasted preferred). Mix and heat. Then add in eggs, carrots and onions and mix again. Turn off heat and mix in scallions. Done!
