CyberParents’ Recipe Chinese Veggie Rice with tofuand optional mushrooms
|6 ounces hard tofu, cubed
2 tsp. mixed herb seasoning without salt
1 tsp. tamari soy sauce
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. canola oil
3 tsp. water
1.5 cups brown rice, cooked
1 cup chopped broccoli
3 cups chopped mushrooms.
Bottle of tamari soy sauce for the table.
Lettuce leaves if served cold.
|Squeeze all water from tofu between paper towels. Cut into 1/2" cubes.
Mix herb seasoning, 1 tsp. tamari soy sauce, black pepper, 1 tsp. canola oil, and water together, toss with tofu, and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Squeezing the tofu dry prepares it to soak up other seasonings.
Cook brown rice, rinse well, refrigerate. You are only refrigerating rice to make it easier to "crumble." If you are in a hurry, you can skip this step.
Sauté tofu until browned and remove to a refrigerator dish. Crumble about 3/4 cup of rice into same pan and sauté it. Add remaining rice, mix well, then mix with tofu.
Steam broccoli, red bell pepper, and yellow squash to desired doneness. Crispy is healthier! Mix with rice/tofu and refrigerate if serving cold.
Sauté mushrooms in canola oil until limp. Add soy sauce. Although this can be done the night before, reheat the mushrooms before serving
Serve hot or cold in bowls or on salad plate, allowing each person to add warm mushrooms and soy sauce to taste.
If served cold, line bowl or salad plate with lettuce leaves.
Tastes will vary depending upon herb seasoning used.
