Tips for the fried rice recipe

  • Be sure to cut your veggies into uniformly sized pieces so that they’ll cook at the same speed.
  • Make sure to use cold rice. Warm rice, just out of the rice cooker won’t fry well and will form clumps. Leftover refrigerated rice is perfect for this fried rice recipe.
  • Use high heat and keep an eye on the pan. This will help fry and brown the rice and veggies to crispy perfection. You want fried rice, not steamed rice!
  • Adjust the amount of sesame oil and soy sauce if you feel you need a kick of flavor at the end.
  • Omit the egg to make the fried rice 100% vegan.
  • Try using half butter, half oil instead of oil only. It tastes wonderful and the rice is perfectly fried every time.

What protein can we add to the vegetable fried rice?

This stir-fried rice could certainly be a meal on its own but besides eggs, you can add protein such as tofu, chicken, or shrimp to the fried rice.

How to keep the fried rice leftovers

You can keep the vegetable fried rice leftovers for 3 days in an airtight container on your refrigerator. Reheat in a skillet or microwave.

Can we use another rice?
