Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • ½ cup soy sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oleak or sriracha
  • 1 block (14 ounces) extra firm tofu, cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 16 ounces steamable jasmine rice, prepared according to package instructions
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 small white onion, peeled, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, deseeded, diced
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Kosher salt, as desired
  • ground black pepper, as desired
  • sliced scallions, for garnish


  • Large Bowl
  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, whisk together ¼ cup soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and sambal or sriracha. Then toss the tofu in the sauce until evenly coated. Set aside and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.

  • Step 2

    To install the griddle plate, position it flat on top of the heating element and gently press down until it clicks into place. Close the hood.

  • Step 3

    Turn dial to GRILL, set temperature to HI, and set time to 20 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating (preheating will take approx. 10-12 minutes).

  • Step 4

    Remove the tofu from the marinade. When unit beeps to signify it has preheated and ADD FOOD is displayed, open hood and add 1 tablespoon oil on the griddle. Place tofu on left side of griddle, then place pepper and onion on right side of griddle. Leave hood open and cook for about 10 minutes, tossing frequently until tofu is lightly browned on all sides.

  • Step 5

    When tofu is cooked, remove from griddle, and set aside. Add carrots and peas and toss with the vegetables until softened, about 5 minutes. Push the vegetables to the side of the griddle. Add 2 tablespoon oil on the griddle, then add the beaten eggs and cook stirring for about 1 minute. Toss the eggs and vegetables together until evenly combined, then push to the side of the griddle.

  • Step 6

    Add the remaining oil to the griddle, then add the rice. Cook for about 2 minutes, then toss and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Add soy sauce, tofu and toss the rice mixture with the vegetables and egg until evenly combined. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes. If time is running low, use the up arrow on the right side of the display to add more time.

  • Step 7

    Remove fried rice from the griddle, place on plate or serving platter and garnish with the scallions.
