Browning the rice adds flavor to this veggie fried rice dish; so let sit another minute or two if needed after adding rice. Use gluten free tamari and seasonings to make gluten free. If you can’t find baked tofu, press extra firm tofu with heavy can, lined between layers of paper towels in fridge for at least two hours. Cube tofu; spray with non-stick spray, pepper and salt; bake 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees until crispy. Serve with steamed broccoli, veggie potstickers or edamame.
