30 mins


  • 2 cups of cooked brown rice
  • 4 tsp capers
  • 300g silken tofu, drained
  • 2 cups of fresh spinach or kale, chopped
  • Black pepper
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast – optional but so delicious
  • A dusting of cayenne pepper – optional

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Add a dash of water to a ceramic pan and turn the heat to medium-high. Once the water starts bubbling, add the rice and capers and warm up for a minute, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Stir in the tofu and break it up into a nice scramble, then add the spinach or kale and season with black pepper – stir in the cayenne pepper and nutritional yeast if you wish to include those.

Step 3

Stir in the lemon juice

Step 4

Keep adding water as needed to prevent from sticking to the pan.

Step 5

When everything is warm, pour onto plates and serve with a big green salad, sliced avocado and maybe some sauerkraut – delicious!
