  • cup frozen veggies of choice (I used an organic carrot, pea, and corn mix)
  • 4 scallion stalks chopped
  • 1/4 -1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • Tb tamari (or soy sauce if not gf)
  • 5-7 oz package of firm pre-baked tofu cubed (or half package of tofu in water - see recipe notes)
  • 1/4 cup kimchi
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Add scallions and frozen veggies to a large pan with enough veggie broth to heat them. The amount of broth will vary depending on the size of your pan. You don't want too much, just enough to heat the veggies though and cook the scallions.
  2. Add brown rice and soy sauce. Continue adding a little veggie broth when needed.
  3. Add in tofu and cook until heated through. 
  4. Remove pan from heat, wait a few minutes, and then stir in kimchi.
  5. Top with toasted sesame seeds and serve!

Recipe Notes

*If you're cooking the tofu yourself, take a package of organic extra firm tofu in water, press out the water (I press for about 15 minutes), cube it into small bite-size pieces.  Place tofu in a bowl, add 2 TB soy sauce with a half tsp each of garlic powder and onion powder. Bake it for 15 minutes at 375 degrees F.
