Fried rice make-over

This is a simple rice dish that I am submitting to this month’s Monthly mingle event hosted at cooking and me. This event was started by Meeta.

2 cups brown rice cooked in water with about 2 tbsp buttery spread (I used smart balance), salt and pepper (veg broth would have been amazing but did not have any on hand)
1 pack extra-firm tofu, cut into small pieces and fried (I used only about 5-6 tbsp oil)
1 1/2 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
1 bunch scallions (green and the white parts)
1 tbsp chilli-garlic paste
a good dash of soy sauce
salt and pepper

Stir-fry the veggies with a bit of oil (carrots in first, then add the rest of the veggies). Season with salt and pepper.
Add the tofu, the chilli-garlic paste, soy sauce. Mix well
Stir the rice in, check seasoning. Heat it through and serve!
