Easy Vegetable Stir-Fry Rice: This rice can be made vegan, vegetarian, or with any type of protein like shrimp, chicken, or tofu. This recipe is healthier and cleaner in ingredients.

Ingredients 

  • 1 tablespoon oil, sesame or any
  • ¼ finely diced onion
  • 1-2 finely diced garlic cloves
  • 1.5 cups brown/white rice, cooked the day before
  • ¼ cup frozen corn
  • cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 egg is optional
  • 1/2-1 tablespoon soy sauce, up to your liking

Instructions 

  • In a pan or a wok, Sauté your onions for a few minutes until translucent on medium-low. Add in your finely diced garlic and don’t let it burn just sauté it for 20 to 30 seconds.
  • Push your garlic and onion to the side and quickly scramble one egg. You can now add in your leftover cooked rice and your veggies.
  • Your rice must be leftover and cooked at least 1 to 3 days in advanced. Once you stirred in your veggies and cook them for about a minute you can add in your soy sauce of choice which will be to taste, I personally like less. Take it off the heat and garnish with some scallions and enjoy

Notes

I used avocado oil as I don’t like sesame oil but please feel free to use any oil you like. In the beginning when you’re sautéing your onions, you can also add some diced seasoned chicken, shrimp or tofu if you wish. Some minced ginger is also optional if you like it. Your rice must be cooked the night before as per the package directions or else it will be way too sticky and not the consistency we want in fried rice.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
