  • The intricate carbohydrates found in brown rice play a critical role in providing a gradual and sustained release of energy.
  • Unlike simple carbohydrates that may increase ketone production, the steady energy from complex carbohydrates helps the body avoid breaking down fats for energy, reducing the chances of excessive ketone production.
  • Moreover, the plant-based proteins in tofu contribute to the overall balance of macronutrients, promoting fullness and supporting muscle health.
  • Vegan fried rice helps maintain stable blood sugar levels by consuming complex carbohydrates, preventing the body from consuming ketone energy production.
  • It can be precious for individuals who want to manage their ketone levels and support a balanced and sustainable energy supply.


Ingredients for 4 servings:

  • 1 cup tofu
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup carrots (finely diced)


  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp organic brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 2 chili
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 204°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with non-stick spray.
  2. Wrap the tofu in a clean and absorbent towel. Put something heavy (like a cast iron skillet) on top of it to press out the liquid.
  3. Once preheated oven, cut the tofu into 1/4-inch cubes and place them on the baking sheet. Bake for 26-30 minutes until the edges turn golden brown. The longer you bake it, the firmer and crispier it becomes. If you want softer tofu, remove it from the oven around the 26-28 minute mark. If you like crispy tofu, bake it for the full 30 minutes. Set it aside.
  4. While the tofu is baking, cook the rice. Boil 12 cups of water in a large pot, then add the rinsed rice and stir. Boil it uncovered for 30 minutes, strain it for 10 seconds, and return it to the pot. Cover it with a lid and let it steam for 10 minutes.
  5. While the rice and tofu are cooking, prepare the sauce. Mix all the ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Taste it and adjust the flavor as needed by adding more tamari or soy sauce for saltiness, peanut butter for creaminess, brown sugar for sweetness, or chili garlic sauce for heat.
  6. Once the tofu is done baking, add it directly to the sauce and let it marinate for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Heat a large metal or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Use a slotted spoon to scoop the tofu into the pan, leaving most of the sauce behind. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it becomes deep golden brown on all sides. Lower the heat if it’s browning too quickly. Remove it from the pan and set it aside.
  8. Add garlic, green onion, peas, and carrots to the same pan. Sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, and season it with 1 tablespoon of tamari or soy sauce.
  9. Add the cooked rice, tofu, and remaining sauce to the pan. Stir and cook over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.
  10. Serve immediately with extra chili garlic sauce or sriracha for heat (optional). You can also garnish it with crushed salted, roasted peanuts or cashews. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
