How to make veggie fried rice

Making veggie fried rice is simple and stress-free. Once you have your pre-made and chilled white rice, it will only take all of 15-20 minutes to assemble.

For this recipe or any fried rice recipe, you will need to have pre-made and chilled rice. This works great for leftovers, or if you make the rice earlier in the day or the day before. You want the rice to be chilled so that once it’s being cooked it won’t turn to mush.

To start, prepare your veggies by dicing the onions, carrots and celery. For this recipe I used frozen peas and corn, you can use all frozen recipes if you desire or all fresh. It’s really up to you.

Preheat a large sauté pan over medium/low heat and add in your ghee. I love using ghee because I believe it adds an amazing flavor, however you can use EVOO or even regular butter.

Once the pan is preheated, add in the onion and garlic. Allow these to simmer while mixing occasionally for a few minutes. Then, add in the carrots and celery. Again, allow these to simmer for a few minutes to get nice and soft.

Next, add in the frozen peas and corn and mix until the ingredients are well combined. Using your spatula, make a whole in the center of the pan by pushing all the veggies to the side. Then, crack both eggs in the center and whisk until they are scrambled. Mix in the veggies with the eggs.

After you have completed those steps, add in the chilled white rice and mix until the veggies are well combined. Drizzle in the soy sauce and sesame seed oil and mix once again.

Season the fried rice next and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. That’s it! Remove the fried rice from the heat and serve warm. Top it off with sesame seeds and freshly chopped green onion and enjoy!
