Fried rice, take-out favorite, a lazy person’s best meal, and in our household it’s a staple. What can I say? It’s a great way to use up any left-over rice, you can customize with whatever mix-ins you want, and it’s so absolutely delicious! You could have it any time of the day, breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even as a hearty snack! It’s an entire meal in and of itself, it has protein, it has greens, and it has carbs! (It’s not super healthy, but I mean, what fried rice is?)
I wanted to make this dish because I used to eat this at a restaurant back home, and it was Sunday brunch favorite of mine. I would literally just eat that tofu fried rice as my meal, nothing else. Probably not the best meal I’ve had, but I couldn’t resist, it was so good. So I decided to try it out for myself, and surprise, surprise, It was so easy to make! What I did was use a Filipino favorite, garlic fried rice (sinangag), as a base, and added it sauteed tofu, spinach, soy sauce, and a bit of butter!
