Tofu Fried Rice

by Meghann on March 4, 2009

Who doesn’t love greasy chinese food?

Fried Rice is my particular favorite. I remember back in college I used to order from a particular chinese place simply because their combos came with fried rice rather then plain ole boring steam rice. Fried rice was always the better option. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dinner tonight takes a healthier approach on one my favorite classics.


To make my version of Fried Rice a bit healthier I made a few changes. I used short grain brown rice, steamed the vegetables rather then having them cook in oil, had a non-traditional sauce and used very little oil in the process. ๐Ÿ™‚


Tofu Fried Rice

  • 3/4 cup cooked Short Grain Brown Rice
  • Sesame Oil
  • 1 egg
  • Veggie mix of Broccoli, Cauliflower, & Carrot
  • Baked Tofu
  • 2 Tablespoons Country Bob Stir Fry Sauce
  • Sesame Seeds

I marinated a 1/2 block of Tofu in Soy Sauce and baked it in the oven at 400 for 30 minutes, turning once. On the stove top I lightly coated a wok with the sesame oil then cooked the egg in the hot pan. Once the egg was cooked I added the brown rice. In a separate pot I steamed the veggies then added them to the rice mix as well as the tofu. Once everything was mixed, I added the Stir fry sauce and let it all the flavors mend together for 5 minutes. When everything was finished I garnished with sesame seeds.


It was very easy to make and more then easy to eat. Yum! Exactly what I was looking for with non of the greasy feeling chinese take out usually gives me.

Dessert is a secret for now. I will explain it in the morning, but for now I will just leave you with this picture and the answer that yes, it was as good as it looks.:)


Thank you to everyone for you advice on my blister. I bought some Moleskin after work and am hoping to give it a shot on my run tomorrow morning.

I also want to give my sister a SHOUT OUT for setting a new PR and crossing over to the double digits today! Congrats Kelly for running your first 10 miles!!!! I’m also excited to announce that she will be joining Caitlin, Abbie (the person, not the puppy ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and I for the Croom Fools Run in April!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Blisters, Waffles and a New Race

March 4, 2009

Stupid blisters. Some of you may or may not remember the giant blister that exploded on my heel during my half on Sunday. It was one of those things that I mentally blocked from my mind during the race so I could finish the race in my goal time. Unfortunately, that has come back to more ยป
