- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- Yield: 1 serving 1x
- Category: entree
- Method: stove top
- Cuisine: vegan, japanese
- 1-2 scallions, sliced with white and green separated
- 1 cup cooked rice (225g)*
- 1 tbsp Vegan Japanese kewpie mayonnaise (15g)
- 1 tsp vegetarian oyster sauce (or soy sauce)
- ½ tsp mushroom stock powder
- ½ scant teaspoon garlic powder, optional
- salt & pepper, to taste
- 3-4 pieces of Vegan Tofu Karaage Fried 'Chicken', chopped into small pieces
- In a bowl, mix the Japanese mayonnaise and rice.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium high heat and fry white parts of the scallions for 30 seconds. Increase heat to high, add the rice and cook for about 1 minute. The key here is to break apart the rice by tossing it using a wooden paddle or spatula, instead of stirring or squishing it down. Drizzle in the soy sauce, salt and pepper. Toss the rice for another 15 seconds. Add in the karaage until heated through. Lastly, toss in the green part of the scallion and serve in a bowl. Enjoy!
