If you need to cook the rice before this recipe, make sure it has cooled before making this recipe. Otherwise, the rice will stick together and you’ll have sticky fried rice.

I am a big rice-eater, so I prep rice often. This way, I always have a quick meal (or snack) when I need it. 

The “egg” in this fried rice is just a simple tofu scramble. Tofu scrambled eggs are quick and ready in less than 10 minutes, you can check out my Tofu Scramble Recipe here. The tofu scramble is an awesome addition to vegan breakfast, but can also be used in many other recipes, like this one.

Tofu and edamame add protein to this simple vegan dinner, and they both add some great texture and flavor too!
