lime rice with smoked tofu

My super aromatic quick easy healthy lime rice with smoked tofu is on our table at least once a week I usually make twice the amount of rice when I cook rice for dishes like my tahini veggies or my butternut apricot curry, so we can have a delicious fried rice the next day.

Careful: You always want to put leftover rice in the fridge asap, otherwise a bacteria called bacillus cereus can become a problem. When using the leftover rice, you want to make sure it’s thoroughly heated.
