I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Tofu & Edamame Fried Rice
...in your mind.

Tofu & Edamame Fried Rice

Serves 4 - I could eat this all day long...and if you’re not a tofu fan, this is the time to become one.


  • 1 pack Extra Firm Tofu
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 green onions, white & light green parts, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 cup frozen edamame beans
  • 2 cups pre-cooked cold rice - fresh rice will make it mushy and gross, and you don’t want that do you?
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame chili oil


  1. Slice tofu horizontally into 2 pieces (so you now have 2 square blocks)
  2. Place tofu blocks side by side on a triple layer of paper towels, with a triple layer on top
  3. Place something heavy like a pot or pan on top and leave about 10 minutes to drain, then cut tofu into 1 inch cubes
  4. Heat wok on high until almost smoking and add 1 tablespoon oil then tofu
  5. Cook until browned evenly all around - about 5 minutes and remove
  6. Add a little more oil and the garlic, ginger, green onions, red pepper and edamame
  7. Cook, stirring often about 5 minutes until everything has softened
  8. Add the rice, breaking it up with your fingers as it goes in
  9. Add soy and sesame chili oil - mix well
  10. Add tofu back in and mix gently so you don’t bust up the tofu
  11. Serve
