Kimchi Fried Rice w/ Teriyaki Wasabi Tofu

5 Servings at $3.10 per Serving

  • 1 Block X-Firm Tofu

  • 1 tsp wasabi paste

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

  • 1/4 c. teriyaki sauce

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

  • 1/2 cup diced onion

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger

  • 1 1/2 cups Napa cabbage Kimchi, chopped into small pieces

  • 3 cups cooked (long grain) brown rice (TIP: use day-old rice, it'll be more restaurant-like)

  • 2 tablespoons juice from Kimchi

  • 1 tablespoon Gochujang (or Sriracha)

  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic

  • low sodium soy sauce to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place tofu, teriyaki, cornstarch, and wasabi in a bowl and mix to coat. Spread evenly on a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 min, or until the teriyaki starts to caramelize. 

Bring a wok to medium heat, then add oil, onions and ginger.  Cook and caramelize the onion for 2 – 3 minutes until fragrant and the onion has turned brown and translucent.


Increase the heat to HIGH, then add Kimchi and mix everything together.  Cook for 1 – 2 minutes, then add the rice and cook for 1 – 2 minutes, ensuring that every grain is toasted and the Kimchi is well integrated into the rice.  Fold in the fresh garlic, cooked pork and egg.  Add Kimchi liquid and a little bit of soy sauce.  Ensure everything is well mixed.
