VEGGIE “FRIED” RICE- Vegan, Gluten-Free & Oil-Free

Fried rice is something I never cooked, or even tried to cook. Not because I didn’t enjoy it, but because I didn’t believed a homemade fried rice could come close to the stuff you get in a restaurant. Now that I’ve gained confidence in my cooking ability and tried to create fried rice, I realize I was right. Homemade fried rice is not the same as the stuff you get in the restaurant…it’s WAY better!

Veggie “Fried” Rice

Salty, tangy and with a slight hint of spice this dish is the perfect combination of flavours and textures without the added fat, calories and preservatives that normally comes with fried rice.

  • 2 cup water
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 cup diced carrots

  • 1 tbsp vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos (or another gluten-free soy sauce alternative)
  • 2 tbsp gluten-free rice vinegar
  • sriracha, to taste
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds

Instructions:

  1. Bring the water to a boil, add rice, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the rice is soft. 
  2. Meanwhile, saute carrots, onion and garlic in the vegetable broth until the carrots are slightly soft.
  3. Add the Bragg Liquid Aminos, rice vinegar and sriracha and then the corn, peas and cooked rice.
