Tofu Fried Rice

This quick Thai Tofu Fried Rice is a hearty, delicious and flavorful recipe with a mix of fresh vegetables and simple Thai spices.

So, my favorite solution to any hunger pangs that needs to include healthy ingredients is a light stir fry and this Quick Thai Tofu Fried Rice fits the bill.

As easy as it sounds, it’s equally easy to make and extremely flavorful.

*** Since I wanted to keep it LIGHT & VEGETARIAN ***
I’m NOT using Fish Sauce or Oyster Sauce (as used in traditional Thai recipes).

Always use cooked cold rice for any Stir-Fry as it helps keeps the rice texture and breaks less.

Once the ingredients are ready, you simply start by stir-frying the vegetables first.

Then follow the rest of the instructions below to achieve a Restaurant Style – Quick Thai Tofu Fried Rice.
