Vegan egg fried rice

This is a super easy recipe to make your own vegan egg fried rice - a classic Chinese dish. Yes egg fried rice, one of the last frontiers of vegan cooking. Healthy, without cholesterol, quick to make and absolutely yummy! I was surprised myself how delicious it was.

I was wondering how to make egg fried rice as I wanted to emulate the taste of egg yet still keep the recipe super simple. Suddenly I had an epiphany! So I used silken tofu, turmeric and nutritional yeast instead of egg. I was so happy about the result! Then I drizzled some Sriracha sauce on top and I had a perfect Chinese dish that wasn't just delicious but also healthy. If you want it to be even more healthy then just use half of the oil, it should still taste very nice.

Add 3 tbsp of sesame oil to a wok pan and turn it to high heat. Then add finely chopped onion and red pepper and 2 tsp of minced garlic. Stir and sauté until the onion and pepper has softened.

Then add 300g of silken tofu (straight out of the pack, including the water) to the pan together with 4 tbsp of soy sauce (unsweetened), 2 tbsp nutritional yeast, 1 tsp of turmeric and some ground pepper. Mash up the tofu in the pan and mix it all together.

Finally add 1 cup of frozen peas, 250g of cooked rice, a few chopped spring onions and cook for another few minutes until the peas are defrosted and heated up.

Vegan pasta Bolognese - quick and easy

I used to love how my mum made pasta Bolognese when I was a child. Sometimes you just miss flavours you had as a child. So I made a vegan Bolognese version. It's very easy to make and takes less than half an hour to cook. It doesn't contain mushrooms like other vegan equivalents and is boasting with protein!
