Easy Vegan Mexican Rice and Tofu

I love dishes that everyone in my family will eat, as I am sure everyone else does! I have a 6-year old that is crazy picky. But this vegan Mexican tofu and rice dish he will eat. It’s a fairly quick and easy meal which is another added bonus.

I loathe coming up with the meal plan every week. Anyone else? It can be such a headache sometimes. I like to rotate through beans, lentils, pasta, tofu and mock meat for dinners. My kids are weird about lentils, I am not really sure why they take on any flavor you wish, but they look “funny” according to them. But they will pretty much always eat tofu.

So this is a dish I like to throw into the dinner rotation.

The longest part about this meal is cooking the rice, which isn’t even that long. But just know you need that twenty minutes of cooked rice to throw it all together. The rice is cooked with flavor to spice it up a bit, not the spicy sense.

What do you need to make this vegan Mexican rice and tofu?

  • garlic
  • oil
  • onion
  • rice
  • salt and pepper
  • vegetable broth
  • tofu
  • diced tomatoes with green chilis
  • corn (canned or frozen)
  • chili, cumin, oregano
  • salsa (your fav)

How do you make this?

Start by adding all your rice ingredients into a rice cooker, stir and cook accordingly.

While your rice is cooking get a large skillet on the stove. Take your tofu and either crumble it or cut into bite-sized pieces and add to the skillet. Add the remaining “main dish” ingredients and stir. Cook this on medium-low heat while the rice is cooking, stir as needed.

Once the rice is done add it to the skillet and stir until combined if it gets drier than you want to add more salsa.

You can eat this as is, in a tortilla, with chips whatever sounds tasty to you.

Optional add ons; guacamole, vegan sour cream, lettuce, more salsa, olives, whatever you like with your Mexican dishes.
