  • Summary

    Learn how to make vegetable fried rice—it’s a simple and satisfying dinner! This vegetarian recipe features extra vegetables and brown rice. Recipe yields 2 large or 3 moderate servings (I think you could double it if you have a large enough skillet, but you might not get as much caramelization on the edges of the veggies and rice).

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 teaspoons + 2 tablespoons avocado oil or safflower oil, divided
    • 2 eggs, scrambled
    • 1 small white onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
    • 2 medium carrots, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
    • 2 cups additional veggies, cut into very small pieces for quick cooking (see photos for size reference; options include snow peas, asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, bell pepper, and/or fresh or frozen peas—no need to thaw first)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt, more to taste
    • 1 tablespoon grated or finely minced fresh ginger
    • 2 large cloves garlic, pressed or minced
    • Pinch of red pepper flakes
    • 2 cups cooked brown rice (*see notes!)
    • 1 cup greens (optional), such as spinach, baby kale or tatsoi
    • 3 green onions, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce**
    • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    • Chili-garlic sauce or sriracha, for serving (optional)
