You only need 7 ingredients to make this simple vegan fried rice and it’s ready in 15 or 20 minutes. Sometimes I add other veggies.


  • 3/4 cup Basmati rice (150 g)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 chopped carrot
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas (35 g)
  • 2.7 oz firm tofu (75 g)
  • ⅛ tsp turmeric powder
  • Sea salt (optional)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari


  1. Cook the rice according to package directions. I recommend you to cook it the day before.
  2. Heat oil in a wok or skillet and sauté the chopped carrot over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add the peas and cook for another 3 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Use a fork to crumble the tofu into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Cook the tofu in the wok/skillet with a little bit of oil for about 5 minutes. Add the turmeric powder and some salt (optional) and stir. Set aside.
  5. Add more oil and cook the rice for 2 minutes, add the veggies, tofu and tamari or soy sauce and cook for 3 minutes more.
