How to make easy fried rice

How to make easy fried rice


    2 1/2 cups cooked white rice
    1/2 tablespoon butter
    2 eggs, whisked
    2 1/2 cups frozen peas and carrots (can find a combination bag in the frozen food section of grocery store)
    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    1/4 teaspoon minced onion
    4-5 tablespoons soy sauce
    2-3 teaspoons seasame oil
    Salt and pepper, to taste


    Melt butter in a large skillet. Add eggs and cook until scrambled. Remove to plate.
    In the same skillet, add the minced garlic, onion powder, peas, and carrots. Saute for 5 minutes or until tender.
    Add rice and soy sauce to skillet, stirring to combine.
    Stir for an additional 7-10 minutes to fry the rice.
    Turn heat to low, add eggs and seasame oil. Stir to combine.
    Remove from heat.
    Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.


Be sure to taste the amount of soy sauce and seasame oil as you cook. I used a higher content of both, but you can increase/decrease to your liking.

Fried rice will keep refrigerated for up to five days.



This is a super easy recipe for fried rice that looks like you ordered it in a restaurant, but tastes so much better * is so much better for you. Use green peas and onions for a 'traditional' recipe. 1 bowl-full

1 egg, whisked

1/2    cup cooked brown rice

1 cup (or more) mixed veggies (bell peppers, onions, bean sprouts) chopped small

1 tsp. oil (I use EVOO and guess the amount)

toasted splash sesame oil (for flavour)

2 tsp. black bean sauce (guess the amount depending on your personal taste)


   - Preheat non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
   - Chop mixed veggies into small pieces (I like to use bell peppers, frozen green peas, green onions and bean sprouts).
    - Pour your oils into preheated pan (EVOO first because sesame oil will burn easily). Swirl to coat bottom of pan.
    - When oil is hot, add in vegetables and stir-fry until crisp-tender.
   - When veggies are crisp-tender, push to side of pan and add whisked egg to empty space, stirring constantly until scrambled and cooked through.
    - When egg is completely cooked, mix in with the veggies and stir all together.
    - Turn head to low and add in brown rice, stirring to combine.
    - Add black bean sauce and heat through. Serve hot from pan.
    This is a great, satisfying and healthy vegetarian meal!
