This tofu fried rice recipe is a vegan alternative to egg fried rice which I used to love in my pre-vegan days. I mash the tofu and use it instead of the egg and it works really well.

It’s so quick and easy to make too, I usually always have the ingredients in the house which means I quite frequently rustle it up when I haven’t been shopping.

I use the Cauldron tofu in this recipe as I find it works well even though I prefer the Tofoo Co tofu for other recipes. I also got to try out my new tofu press that the people over at Tofuture send to me. I’ve never owned a tofu press, although I sometimes use some kitchen roll and something heavy, but it just never works very well. I was actually surprised at just how well the tofu press worked, you can see how much water came out of it in just two hours in the video at the bottom of the page. It’s a great product plus it’s dishwasher and safe and BPA free. You can also use it for marinating tofu. It makes a huge difference and stops it being so soggy, you can still make this recipe without one though. Just make sure to cook the tofu for a bit longer to cook off the extra moisture.
