Ingredients

  • ¾ Cup chopped onions
  • 1 serrano chile, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons dried plum purée
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon tomato paste
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 Cups cooked brown basmati rice
  • 8 Ounces firm tofu, diced
  • ½ Cup diced California dried plums
  • ½ Cup peas
  • ½ Cup chopped scallions
  • ¼ Cup chopped roasted unsalted peanuts
  • ¼ julienned carrot
  • ¼ peeled, seeded cucumber, cut into thin half-moons

Directions

In a food processor or blender, process the onions and chiles to make a paste. In a small bowl, whisk together the dried plum purée, sugar, soy sauce, and tomato paste.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Add the onion mixture and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add the dried plum mixture, rice, and tofu; stir-fry until hot, about 5 minutes. Add the diced dried plums, peas, and scallions and stir-fry 2 minutes more. Transfer to a serving bowl or individual plates and garnish with peanuts, carrots, and cucumbers.

Fried Rice Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Fried Rice Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.

Fried Rice Wine Pairing

Tempranillo or other light Spanish red wine types with paella, even seafood paella. Various other wines depending on what rice is cooked with; see Pasta Recipes and other individual food types.
