Tofu Fried Rice

Our Tofu Fried Rice starts out with diced tofu that is first baked, then marinated in a Sweet Peanut Soy Sauce and sautéed to seal in the flavors. Afterward, sautéed veggies and brown rice are added and tossed in the remaining sauce to combine and unify the ingredients. This healthful, savory plant-based dish is simple to make and will have your family raving!
