Tofu is amazing! However, not by itself. To me, the stuff straight out of the package is somewhat disgusting. It deserves to be baked, fried, broiled, sauteed and blackened.
I love garlic but when cooking with it there is a fine line between getting it crispy and burning it. Make sure to keep the heat at a medium-high temperature and be sure to keep stirring it when cooking.
I had some fresh basil and cilantro that on hand so I decided to toss it in the rice. The result was YUM!
