Here is a quick vegan meal you can make at home. Taking some shortcuts (but not with your health) like buying the fried rice premade (Trader Joe’s vegan fried rice-which can be found in the frozen foods section-is divine and healthy) makes this dish even easier!
Fabulous Fried Rice and Veggies
One bag of Vegan fried rice from Trader Joe’s (contains carrots and peas)
Two tablespoons oil (use any oil you prefer based on taste and wanted/unwanted calorie consumption. I tend to use olive oil because it has the best flavor)
1tbs non-dairy butter (I like Earth Balance but there is also a selection of almond butters and hemp butters you can use)
Two garlic cloves, minced
One zucchini, chopped in cubes
½ of medium onion, chopped
2 cups fresh spinach (not frozen)
1 can white beans
1 half block of standard organic baked tofu (also at Trader Joe’s-available in teriyaki or regular, or by all means, bake your own)
Red pepper flakes, sea salt, and pepper to taste
In a wok or large skillet, add oil, garlic, onions and spinach and sauté until onions are golden brown. Add zucchini and tofu and continue to sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add 1 tbs non-dairy butter, rice and stir continuously until rice has softened. Add white beans, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper then cook on high heat for another 2-3 minutes.
