4 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
1 tsp coconut sugar or maple syrup
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp rice vinegar
½ tbsp av avocado oil (or evoo)
For the Fried Rice:
1 tbsp dried basil

3 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 onion, chopped

Combine 2 cups jasmine rice with 4 cups water and 1 tbsp dried basil in a large pot or rice cooker. Bring to a boil, once reached, turn down heat to low and cover with a lid and cook until rice is cooked and fluffy.
Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Cut tofu into cubes and add to marinate and set aside.
In a skillet, heat ½ tbsp oil over medium high heat, add onion and garlic and cook for a minute or until just turning golden. Add the chopped bell peppers, carrots and broccoli and mix in. Cook for 5 minutes.
Add the tofu to the vegetables and reserve the sauce, cook for 3 minutes.
Add in the rice, and pour the sauce over. Mix in and cook for 3 minutes. Taste and adjust salt and spice. Add in cut basil leaves, mix in and turn off heat. Serve with sesame seeds and a squeeze of lime! I topped mine with avocado and pickled onions too.
