  • 2 cups uncooked brown rice (or your choice of grains)

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

  • 1/2 large yellow onion, finely chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced

  • 2 carrots, finely chopped

  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari soy sauce

  • 3 green onions, finely sliced on the bias

  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric

  • 1 cup (3/4-inch cubes) savory tofu

  • 1 cup chopped kale

  • Gomashio, for topping (optional)


In a medium saucepan, bring brown rice, or your choice of grain, plus the appropriate amount of water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 25 to 30 minutes until tender. Drain any excess liquid, fluff with a fork, and set aside to cool.

In medium sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the yellow onion and sauté for about 8 minutes, or until translucent. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the carrots and cook approximately 2 minutes.

Pour in the soy sauce and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to evaporate, about 2 minutes. Add half the green onions and stir-fry for another 3 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle in the turmeric. Add the cooked rice or grains and sauté until warmed through. Add the tofu and warm through. Add the finely chopped kale or broccoli rabe and stir to coat and quickly warm through. Top with the remaining green onions, sprinkle with some gomashio, if desired, and serve immediately.
