Twenty Minute Vegan Dinner

  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 block tofu, I used silken
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch, optional
  • 1 bunch spinach, thoroughly rinsed
  • salt, pepper, red pepper flakes to taste
  1. For the rice, mix rice with 1 cup of water in a pot. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, cooking for a total of 15 minutes, or until fluffy.
  2. For the tofu, heat a pan, preferably cast iron, then add oil. Slice tofu into planks, then dry with a towel to remove excess water. Dust with cornstarch, optional. Fry on cast iron until golden, then flip and fry until golden on both sides. Remove from the pan, cube, and season with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes.
  3. For the spinach, rip the clean spinach into large pieces. Heat a pan, then add some oil, then add the spinach. Add some water and cook down until vibrant green.
  4. Serve and enjoy, don’t forget the spinach-broth!
