|Vegan Mushroom Egg Fried Rice|
This is a great low waste or zero waste recipe if you make the tofu yourself (if so well done you). As it is can be easily adapted to feature a wide range of ingredients to meet your needs or budget.
Traditional egg fried rice incorporates seasoning such as soy soy, toasted sesame oil and five spice. Which I normally use but opted out of using because I didn't have to hand. So instead I used up a batch of frozen mushrooms which I had cooked earlier and preceded to cook the contents of my meal. I then crumbled a block of extra ft I'm . Tofu I use the ’ Tofoo’ brand’s Naked flavour.
I served my rice with baked sweet plantains and chilli sauce as it was would I have and I had quite a big portion.
