    Fry the garlic topping: in a pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add sliced garlic and fry until golden brown and crisp (~2-3 mins). Transfer fried garlic to a paper towel to drain.

    Cook the tofu: add tofu to the pot and pour over 2 tbsp soy sauce. Pan-fry until golden brown. Set aside.

  • 3

    Cook the vegetables: add remaining 1 tbsp oil to pot. Add onion and ginger and cook until onions are golden brown (~7 mins). Add minced garlic and cook 1-2 mins, or until fragrant.

    Cook the rice: add rice, water, vegetable bouillon, turmeric and remaining 2 tbsp soy sauce and stir to combine. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook for 35-40 mins, or until the rice grains have expanded and have begun to break down, the broth has thickened, and a porridge-like texture is achieved. Season with salt and pepper and stir in tofu. The porridge will thicken over time, so adjust water and seasoning as needed.
