Fried rice is an easy-to-make dish found in many Asian cuisines. I often cook fried rice when I have leftover rice from the day before, or when I’m short of time. What I love about fried rice is that it can be different every time as you can add any of your favourite ingredients to the dish. Whenever I cook rice, I never fail to use EVOO. Whether it is adding 2-3 tablespoons to the cooked rice or frying rice with EVOO, I love how the rice absorbs the flavor and fragrance of the oil, making it fluffier and tastier!
Start the preparation of your healthier fried rice by dicing the onion and the spring onions into fine pieces. Then, move on to the tofu, and dice it into 2 to 2.5 cm size pieces.
In a large pot or medium-sized wok, over medium heat, add Timperio EVOO and the sliced onions. Cook it until it gets softened, but before it turns brown.
Over medium heat, add tofu and fry it until it starts to turn golden (about 2 minutes). Stir occasionally.
Let the ingredients continue cooking, and push them in one side of pot. Crack the egg in, breaking up the yolk, and cook it for 1 to 1-5 min.
When egg is almost set, stir, and add rice in. Continue frying over high heat until all the ingredients are well mixed (about 5 minutes).
Add spring onions and seasoning. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and 1 teaspoon of Timperio chili-pepper flavored extra virgin olive oil to add a dash of healthy hear to your fried rice.
