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
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- (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)
- 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.
- 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.
- Finally, add in your tofu and mango, fold everything in together.
- Top with Green Onions and Extra Siracha. Serve.
