This tasty sauce has all the flavours in it, and that just gives your rice dish a different twist.
Cook the rice according to the instructions on the packet.
Chop the onion finely. Cut the pepper and carrots into very small cubes.
Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and carrot and fry for a few minutes. Then add the red pepper and peas. And fry until they start to soften (5-7 minutes). Add a little teriyaki sauce to the vegetables as they fry.
Meanwhile, dice the tofu.
When the vegetables are cooked, remove from the pan and set aside.
In the same frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil over medium-high heat and fry the tofu until golden brown.
Turn down the heat a little and let the pan cool slightly. Next, add 2 tablespoons of teriyaki wok sauce to the fried tofu and fry briefly so that the tofu gets colour.
Then add the vegetables and unpolished rice to the tofu. Pour the remaining teriyaki sauce over the rice and vegetables. Stir everything well and let it heat up for a few minutes.
Finely chop the spring onion and garnish the rice with it.
