  • 1/2 350 g block extra firm tofu 175 g
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup minced onion or shallot about 1/2 small
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper minced
  • 3/4 cup frozen pea corn and carrot mixture
  • 1 cup minced spinach or kale leaves
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked leftover brown rice
  • 1 tbsp reduced sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 6 tsp hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 48 wonton wrappers
  • Oil in atomizer
  • Pinch each salt and pepper
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • Green onions to serve


  • Cut the tofu into very small pieces (the size of a pea). Place on a baking sheet lined with a kitchen towel or paper towels and top with more towels. Press down with another baking sheet and heavy items. Allow to sit for 20 minutes to press out the excess liquid.
  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Meanwhile, to a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute until fragrant, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the bell pepper, frozen corn, carrot and pea mixture, spinach, leftover rice, pressed tofu, soy, hoisin, sesame and a pinch of pepper, if desired. Saute and stir until everything is coated in the sauce.
  • Taste and season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
  • Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, spray two mini muffin tins with olive oil (48 mini muffin holders total). Press a wonton wrapper into each hole. Spray with more olive oil and add a pinch each of salt and pepper to the wonton wrappers.
  • Add the beaten eggs to the rice mixture and toss until everything is combined.
  • Fill the wonton cups with the fried rice mixture.
  • Bake for 10 minutes until the wontons are golden brown and the egg and rice filling is set.
  • Garnish with green onions, if desired. Enjoy!
