  • Start by cooking rice according to the pckage. If cooking the same day place in freezer to cool on a plate while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Otherwise, leftover rice works perfectly for this recipe.

  • Stir in 1 tablespoon of soy sauce to tofu. Cook tofu until it's dried out and becomes a crumbly texture and then take off the heat and set aside. 
  • In the same pan the tofu was cooked add teaspoon olive oil and cook onions, carrots, and garlic on medium heat until onions translucent and carrot soften. 
  • Add tofu, frozen peas, and rice and stir to combine.
  • Add remaining soy sauce along with green onions and continue to cook. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve with a bit of siracha.

Pups Notes

  • You may want to add more soy sauce in the end, just remember with soy sauce it has a strong taste so it's always best to start small and and slowly add more till you get to the desired taste.
