Wild Blend Rice With Black Sesame Seed Pan Fried Tofu

There is nothing wrong with revisiting an old favorite-- rice and fried tofu, a heartfelt vegan classic.

Last week, a slew of Lundberg Family Farm rice varieties were on sale from jasmine to brown to short and long grain. I selected the Lundberg Wild Blend, a mix of long grain brown rice, sweet brown rice, wild rice, whole grain Wehani rice,  and whole grain black Japonica rice.

It was only right to make classic fried tofu alongside a beautiful, delicious compilation of rice.

Wild Blend Rice With Black Sesame Seed Pan Fried Tofu Ingredients and Preparation

1 cup Lundberg Farms Wild Blend (or any rice of your choosing)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 14 oz extra tofu block, pressed as close to dry as possible and cubed
1 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon Liquid Aminos
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup red onion

1 teaspoon black sesame seeds

Prepare wild rice according to package directions. Set aside.
Heat a skillet with generous olive oil drizzle.
In a bowl, hand toss cubed tofu with sesame oil, garlic, turmeric, cumin, coriander, liquid aminos, ginger, black pepper, and red onion. Let this marinate for a minute or two.
Cook tofu for a few minutes on each side. Serve hot with rice. Sprinkle black sesame seeds on top.
