Vegan 'Egg' Fried Rice

Using brown rice
I used some balanced Vegan Bak Kwa from Chinese New Year ;)
 
Using unpolished red rice
 
 
Fried rice is a simple dish of steamed rice stir-fried in a Chinese wok, usually mixed with ingredients like eggs, vegetables, and meat. This is a vegan variation which is eggless, and meatless of course.
 
Recently I blogged about the Vegan Tofu Scrambled 'Egg', today let me share with you how to incorporate the tofu scrambled 'egg' into a fried rice dish. I only eat unpolished whole-grain brown or red rice for better health, you may use white rice if you prefer. This recipe happens to be one of my all-time favourite fried rice because it is simple to make, healthy and delicious. And most importantly, no animals were harmed during the process.
 
Dietary: Vegetarian, Vegan.
