Super Simple Suppers – Fried Rice

Welcome to Super Simple Suppers.  Every Thursday I share a vegan recipe that can be made with a simple kitchen.  I do all my cooking in a tiny apartment kitchen with just a few cupboards and minimal counter space.  There are times I wish it was bigger, but I like how it keeps me cleaning as I go so I never end up with a huge kitchen mess at the end of the day.

Today we are doing a vegan fried rice.  Quantities can be modified to your taste, this is just what I recommend.


  • 6 oz firm tofu crumbled
  • 1 tbsp oil (I use canola)
  • 1 cup cooked rice (I typically use a brown variety)
  • 1 small head broccoli chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • liberal sprinkling of soy sauce (you can also use Bragg Liquid Amino – 32 oz – Liquid for a low sodium option)

Heat oil in pan on medium heat.  Add tofu and cook till it starts to brown.  Add other ingredients with soy sauce to taste. Cook until broccoli gets to desired consistency.  Enjoy warm.

  1. I never thought to put cilantro in my fried rice! What a great flavor to add! And it also reminds me that I need to plant my cilantro this weekend so that I will have some to use :-)

    • I love cilantro :)

  2. Mmm, I’m going to have to try this! Though I’ll have to swap out something else for the cilantro, since I’m allergic. I love how simple it is. I often find not only is simple food cheaper and easier to prepare, it tastes better.

    • no!! you poor thing! It is probably fine without cilantro too. Throw something else in there with good flavor :)

      • Hehe, thanks for the sympathy. I’ve gotten used to subbing for cilantro (and cumin and coriander). Parsley usually works, but in this recipe, I’m thinking maybe some fresh ginger!

      • love fresh ginger too :)
