Veggie and Tofu Fried Rice

After watching them add a pound of butter while making fried rice last weekend at hibachi, I wanted to find a healthy oil-free option that was still full of flavor. I cooked brown basmati rice in the rice cooker with miso broth which added a lot of asian flavor without tons of added calories. I sauteed a bag of frozen asian stir fry vegetables with 2/3 block of extra firm tofu (crumbled), and chopped kale. The crumbled tofu acts as the scrambled egg in the fried rice and gives it the same texture as egg. Using a nonstick wok worked really well because I could saute all of the veggies and tofu without having to use oil, and added minced garlic and ginger for flavor. I topped it off with low sodium soy sauce and it was exactly what I had in mind.
