Fried Rice with Scallions, Edamame, and Tofu

Based on all the sweets I've been posting about, I figured it was about time to give you guys a little something for actual dinner... not that cake isn't a great dinner idea "life is short eat dessert first!"

This is another Ellie recipe from The Food You Crave (can you tell I'm loving this book?). You can find it on page 176. SO GOOD! In my usual style I added some shrimp so it's not vegetarian anymore, but this would be super tasty even without the shrimp :)


Fried Rice with Scallions, Edamame, and Tofu
recipe from The Food You Crave by Ellie Krieger

1 Tbs plus 1 tsp canola oil
2 large garlic cloves minced
4 scallions
1 Tbs minced fresh ginger
4 cups cooked brown rice
3/4 cup seeded and finely diced red bell pepper
3/4 cup frozen shelled edamame, cooked according to package directions
1/2 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) corn kernals
6 oz firm tofu cut into 1/4 inch cubes
2 large eggs beaten
3 Tbs low-sodium soy sauce

Heat oil, add garlic, scallions, ginger and cook until aromatic. Add rice, bell pepper, edamame, corn, and tofu and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Make a well in center and scramble eggs (I did the eggs in another pan). Stir to mix and add soy sauce. Serve hot.

John thought there wasn't enough flavor to the sauce. I may add some red pepper flakes to spice it up a bit next time.
