Vegetable Fried Rice

February 22, 2018Teresa

Vegetable Fried Rice is simply awesome. It’s the perfect way to enjoy Fried Rice with incredible flavor and lots of crunchy texture. This lovely recipe includes broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, carrots, mushrooms, corn, peas, leeks, onion and eggs. It’s seasoned with soy, hoisin and oyster sauces to really bring out spectacular Asian flavor. This is one of those throw-in-everything-but-the-kitchen-sink veggie recipes. And believe, you, me, it really works.

I made three different kinds of Fried Rice freezer meals back in early January. Sriracha Chicken Fried Rice, Beef Fried Rice and this wholesome recipe. They all turned out fantastic, but I have to admit this one was my favorite. It’s not gluten free if you use the Hoisin and oyster sauces (or if your soy sauce isn’t gluten free). But it is a whole lot healthier and so totally satisfying as a main dish or to take for lunches. I would put about 2-3 cups of the rice in containers and reheat in the microwave on high about 5 minutes and that was just right.

I have to admit my husband got me hooked on these meals. He enjoys those Tai-Pei frozen chicken dinners. However, I wanted the taste without any preservatives, sodium or high calories so I decided to make up my own freezer meals. While I ended up using about 8 cups of cold, cooked rice in the recipe, you can easily use more if you like that consistency better. Plus, this is a fantastic 30-minute recipe! Yes, that’s right–a 30 minute dinner. 🙂

I recommend making up the rice the day before so it’s well-chilled before using in the recipe. If there are other veggies you like, such as cauliflower, you can certainly add those. I really don’t recommend tomatoes, yellow squash or zucchini because they become too soupy when they cook down and don’t hold their shape. But this is certainly one of those recipes where you can be adventurous and tailor it to fit your family’s desires.

If you’re looking for a fantastic Meatless Mondays dish, I highly recommend Vegetable Fried Rice. It’s hearty, filling and amazing comfort food. It’s certainly a healthier option than take-out or freezer meals from your grocery store. This can be easily refrigerated for a week and used as leftovers for lunch or dinner. I couldn’t get enough of this amazing entree. I was sad when I pulled the last one out of my freezer. I guess it’s time to make another batch. 🙂

Add cold, pre-cooked rice. I used about 8 cups, but you can use up to 10 cups of pre-cooked rice, if preferred and to stretch the dish.

Add soy sauce. I used gluten free low sodium Tamari soy sauce. Because the sodium is so much lower than regular soy sauce, you will probably need to add additional salt and pepper when flavoring the dish.

Instructions
  1. Heat sesame oil in a very large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
  2. Add corn, peas, carrots, bell pepper, onions, broccoli, mushrooms, leeks and garlic.
  3. Stir-fry veggies until tender, about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Push vegetables to the side of the skillet and add beaten eggs.
  5. Scramble eggs then break into pieces while scrambling.
  6. Stir in to remaining veggie mixture.
  7. Add cooked rice, Tamari soy sauce, oyster sauce, if you’re using it and hoisin sauce.
  8. Stir well to combine ingredients.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: You can add a can of sliced water chestnuts and bamboo shoots, drained, if desired.

NOTE: I recommend you have all your veggies and meat cut and the whole recipe ready to go once you begin heating your oil. It cooks very fast and you need to have everything ready.

NOTE: Oyster sauce uses soy sauce in the ingredients. Most soy sauces are NOT gluten free (except Tamari). If you desire to keep this recipe gluten free, then omit the oyster sauce.

NOTE: You can also use 10 cups of prepared rice for this amount of meat and veggies. This yields about 12 servings.

NOTE: I make up large batches so I can have freezer meals. You can easily halve the recipe for a family of four.

NOTE: The time required to pre-cook or chill the rice is not included in this recipe.
