Vegan Fried Rice

Cooking with a Wok! I love it. And the more I do it the better I get. It’s really easy actually. Once you get the timing and temperature right you’ll be enjoying plenty of quick and healthy foods in no time! If you’re going to buy a wok be sure and do a little research. Depending on the type of wok you purchase you’ll want to know how to care for it. There is always the non-stick versions which work fine and are user friendly.

Tip: I find the older the rice the better. It’s a little drier and will absorb some of the liquids from the veggies without getting too sticky.

Vegan Fried Rice Ingredients-

  • 3 cups of day old rice or older. (1 1/2 cups un-cooked)
  • 1 onion
  • 2 small carrots

Try this with crispy tofu too!…

  1. cook rice according to package.
  2. chop onion carrots and bell pepper into bite size pieces. heat wok over high heat and drizzle with oil. toss veggies in hot wok. (it will just start to smoke when hot).
