Veggie Fried Brown Rice

Fried rice is often a popular choice for anyone ordering Chinese takeout. Who could blame you? It’s cooked rice that has been fried together with classic veggies like, carrots, onions, peas, and garlic in butter and soy sauce. Then they add fluffy buttery scrambled eggs to it. Truly it’s amazing how rice can be transformed into a yummy comforting dish! Now, if you are vegan, and are thinking— Sounds good but it doesn’t fit my dietary lifestyle. No worries, we’ve got you covered!! Our VEGGIE FRIED BROWN RICE will please a vegan or non-vegan. Easily use the brand Just Egg, and your favorite brand of vegan butter and this dish is all set for a relaxing couch cuddling, movies watching, eating a delicious vegan meal kinda night! We’ve switched it up a bit by using brown rice to give this dish a little more of a healthy note. This recipe is perfect for using up leftover rice as it works best with day old rice. If you don’t have leftover rice just be sure to make a cup of rice the night before wanting to serve the Veggie Fried Brown Rice. Let the rice cool and store it in the refrigerator in a covered dish until ready to be used. So, get the movies ready and let’s get cooking!

  1. Wow, never thought that I’d be reading about a recipe for ‘healthy’ fried rice! And it looks simple enough that even I might manage it without having to call in assistance from my wife 🙂

    Now, if you could just work your way through a typical Chinese takeaway menu and come up with healthy versions for all of the meals I’d be very grateful!
