Mango Coconut Fried Rice

When I’m cooking for others, especially if it is a new recipe to me, I am far less adventurous.  So I didn’t change this recipe much from the original, but honestly it didn’t need changing.

I found it on the amazing blog We Are Not Martha! Original Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 C brown rice
  • 1/2 C Quinoa
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 3 mangos pealed, pitted and cubed
  • 1/4 C Siracha, plus more for seasoning
  • 1 Lime
  • 14 oz. extra-firm tofu
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 bell pepper chopped (of any color)
  • 1 large chopped carrot
  • 1 C frozen peas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4-6 green onions chopped

Directions

  1. Begin by marinating your tofu.  The longer you can do this, the better, I did mine for only about 4 hours because I didn’t have more time, but definitely try for overnight if you can.  In a blender, combine 1 pealed, pitted, and chopped mango, juice of 1 lime, and 1/4 C of Siracha.  Cube your Tofu, toss with marinade, and refrigerate for 4+ hours.
  2. Once finished marinating, bake the Tofu on 350F for 20 minutes (grease your pan, the tofu can stick a bit). Flip, then Bake for 20 more minutes.
  3. While your Tofu is baking, prepare the rest of your ingredients.  I popped the Quinoa, Rice and 1 can of coconut milk into a rice cooker and let it go to town.  But you can cook them stove top too as directed by the package, using the milk instead of water.
  4. (Time cooking your veggies with your finishing rice & tofu don’t start to cook your veggies until you’re about 5 or so minutes away from their completion – take this time to chop your veggies)
  5. Coat a LARGE (you’re going to have a lot of food!) pan/wok with olive oil over medium heat. Sautee the garlic for 1 minute.  Then add chopped Carrot and Bell Pepper and saute for about 5 minutes.
  6. Add in rice/quinoa and peas and fold together.  Create an open space in the middle of your woke/pan, crack the two eggs and scramble them loosely, then begin folding them in as they cook. Cook for a few minutes, stirring everything up.
  7. Finally, add in your tofu and mango, fold everything in together.
  8. Top with Green Onions and Extra Siracha. Serve.
