Basmati Rice with Scrambled Tofu

This recipe is so simple and easy that you won't believe you never tried it before. It's something a cook all the time, either as to use the leftover of rice or tofu or from scratch. Anyway, if you haven't tried this before give it a go, I can guarantee it will become one of your regular dishes.

1 cup of basmati rice
1 onion chopped
3 cloves of garlic smashed
2 cups of water
300g tofu
Parsley and lemon seasoning
4 tbsp olive oil
Black pepper

1 - Wash the basmati rice and drain all the water
2 - While the water is boiling on a medium size pan fry half of the onion and the garlic on 2 tbsp of olive oil until tender. Add the rice and stir for a few minutes.
3 - Pour the boiling water and the salt and close the lid.
4 - It will take 10 minutes for the rice to be cooked and during this time if needed pour a bit more of water
5 - On a small pan fry the rest of the onions on the remaining olive oil until tender
6 - Crumble the tofu and add to the pan.
7 - Add the seasoning and stir for about 7 to 10 minutes
8 - When the rice is ready mix it with the tofu and serve while still hot
