VEGAN MUSHROOM EGG FRIED RICE







Vegan Mushroom Egg Fried Rice


This is one of my favourite dishes of all time. It is fish free, meat free, egg free, dairy free and vegan.  It may come as a shock for most people to hear that there is a egg free and vegan alternative to mushroom or egg fried rice.  It should not be a shock, especially in 2017 when veganism and plant based eating has exploded.  As any dish can be adapted to be made into a plant based (vegan) dish.







This recipe includes my other favourite dish Tofu Scramble.  I have a simpler recipe here for Vegan scrambled eggs scroll down to the end of the post of my previous recipe Ful Medames (Fava beans) Two Ways here for more information.








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.
