Instructions
The Tofu
  1. Wrap the tofu in a kitchen cloth and put it under your mortar or another heavy object at hand. This is to press out as much liquid as possible. Leave it under pressure while you prepare the marinade.

  2. Mix together soy sauce, grated garlic and sugar in a bowl.

  3. Release the tofu from the cloth and cut it into cubes and put it into the marinade.

The Rice
  1. Slice down garlic, carrot, scallions and ginger into small pieces.

  2. In a large pan, heat up some of the neutral oil and add the sliced vegetables above.

  3. Add the rest of the oil and put in the rice. Quickly toss it around so that all the rice is coated with oil. That keeps it from burning in the bottom of the pan. Let the rice get a slightly golden color

  4. Push the rice to the sides of the pan and make a crater in the middle.

  5. Crack the eggs in the crater, gently whisk and let the egg cook for a couple of minutes.

  6. When the egg is getting firm, blend it with the rice and add the tofu and the green beans.

  7. Add sesame seeds sesame oil, soy sauce and hoisin sauce to taste. Season with salt and pepper.

  8. Break the top of the broccoli to small pieces and sprinkle over the rice. (Save the rest of the broccoli for another meal, for example our One Pot Vegetarian Meal with Pumpkin and Halloumi)

  9. Ready to serve.
