A quick and easy fried rice for vegans! Works great when you have a few things around the house that you need to use up. Only the rice, soy sauce, and sesame oil are mandatory. Throw in whatever else you want - this is only my favorite way!

Cook's Note:

Scrambling an egg with soy sauce in the pan beforehand adds a wonderful texture if you're not vegan. Or you could try tossing in some diced chicken. Also, you may want to put in some more soy sauce.

I love fried rice and the recipe is perfect for me! I'm a vegetarian but I don't like egg in fried rice so I was pleased to come across this recipe! I added corn and green onions since that was what I had on hand but next time I plan on adding onions snap peas zucchini and sprouts. Read More

I am making this right now but the ratio of soy sauce to rice is very high. I've added the soy sauce without measuring but most likely used a tablespoons worth. Only used 1/4 onion and 1 very large mushroom. Read More

What a great recipe! For our vegan guests I added jalapeños red onions carrots and celery to the basics listed above. I also used only sesame oil and a little extra soy sauce. Adaptable flavorful a little time-consuming to prep all the veggies but a great dish. Thanks for the post. Read More

I added some celery and frozen peas. I suggest sautéing the veggies a little before adding the rice as the bell pepper was still a wee bit crunchy. It was a little too oily, probably my fault because I didn’t measure the oil. It was good though. DH liked it. I will make again. As someone else suggested be sure to use a NONSTICK pan or wok.

Very easy to make just be sure you have a big non stick pan to fry the rice in before you start. Read More

I was excited about making this...love all the veges in it. I was a little concerned about the amount of soy sauce mainly because I needed to quadruple the recipe. That meant a cup of Soy Sauce! This was too much. I'm thinking of going half. Next time I'll add soy sauce last and adjust it. Can't wait to try it again...all I could taste was soy sauce this time around. Read More
