Tofu Fried Rice

YIELD: 4 cups

Tofu Fried Rice


  • 1 package Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Extra Firm

  • 3 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar

  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil, divided

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger

  • 1/2 cup diced carrots

  • 1/2 cup sliced celery

  • 2 cups cooked rice

  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions, plus more for garnish


  1. Wrap tofu in a paper towel and let water drain, changing paper towels as needed. Do NOT press. After 5-10 minutes, unwrap and carefully cut tofu into cubes of desired size.
  2. While tofu is draining, make the sauce. In a medium bowl, mix soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil, then set aside.
  3. In a large non-stick pan, heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil over medium heat, then carefully add tofu cubes and fry until brown on all sides, adjusting heat as necessary.
  4. Remove tofu from pan, then drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  5. To the same pan, add 1 tbsp of vegetable oil, garlic, and ginger, then sauté a few minutes until fragrant.
  6. Add carrots and celery, then sauté for another minute or two.
  7. Add cooked rice and the sauce, then stir-fry to evenly combine and heat through.
  8. Add fried tofu cubes and green onions, then stir-fry to combine.
  9. Serve immediately, garnished with more green onions.



  • Leftover rice is great for this. Break up lumps of cold rice with a fork before adding to the pan.
  • Carrots and celery can be substituted with other veggies such as corn, peas, broccoli, etc.
  • Veggies that take longer to cook can be added first, while other veggies such as leafy greens can be added with the rice.
