A healthier version of fried rice with just veggies. While this recipe only uses peas and carrots - for a picky family - you can use any veggie you fancy. Pea pods would be awesome!

Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Vegetable Fried Rice

1/2 cup Peas And Carrots
3 cup Rice, White, Long-grain, Regular, Cooked
1 tbsp(14 g) Vegetable Oil, Canola
1 serving Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 clove Garlic
0.5 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
3 tbsp Sauce, Teriyaki, Ready-to-serve
1 large Egg, Whole

Recipe Directions for Homemade Vegetable Fried Rice

  1. Heat oils in a large frying pan. I used a mix of oils because olive oil cooks away too quickly, but tastes good, while canola has the staying power to fry. Add chopped onions and minced garlic and cook until slightly browned.

  2. Add teriyaki sauce. Scramble the egg in a separate bowl, then stir into pan. Feel free to add pepper to taste.

  3. Make sure peas and carrots (or whatever veggies you're using) are already cooked through before adding to frying pan. They can be added before or after rice, but I want the flavor to cook into the veggies first for a minute or two.

  4. Begin to stir in pre-cooked rice. I find that the texture is better if I cook the rice earlier and refrigerate it an hour or so beforehand. Stir continuously until the teriyaki sauce works its way into the rice. I add a little more sauce at this point if the flavor is too weak.

  5. Let the rice cook for a minute before stirring it up - this will give it a nice pan-fried texture - but not crispy. Do this a few times, but watch it so it doesn't get dry or burnt.

  6. Voila! Easy fried rice! If you want to add chicken, I like to fry cook it in a separate pan with onions, garlic and oil, and then drizzle Iron Chef General Tso sauce once it begins to brown. It adds a nice additional flavor to the fried rice.
