Easy Simple How to Make Fried Rice

The fine, long grains of jasmine rice with its delicate flavour are perfect for fried rice. Precook the rice at least 30 minutes, but preferably one day, before making fried rice and keep it uncovered in the fridge.

The key to preventing excessive clumping and sticking in the pan is to allow the rice to cool before using it. This process can quickly be done by spreading the rice on a sheet pan at room temperature or chilling it in the refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes. Chilling is my preferred method.

Homemade fried rice is a lot easier than you think—plus, there’s absolutely no better way to use up leftover rice!

How to Make Fried Rice?

Stir-fried dinners are always so wonderfully fast—they’re the OG one-pan dinner and they’re meant to be speedy. Fried rice is comforting and filling and it’s kinda-sorta healthy, too—particularly this vegetarian egg fried rice recipe! If it weren’t for the eggs, it’d be vegan, and if you sub GF tamari in place of the soy sauce, this recipe is also gluten-free. So many things! Here’s how to make the best fried rice ever:

  • Season the eggs. Whisk them with a bit of sesame oil, aminos and salt.
  • Cook the veggies! Stir-fry the carrots. A few minutes later, add the onions, and right at the end, add the garlic. Set them aside.
  • Cook the eggs. Quickly stir-fry / scramble the eggs in a bit of vegetable oil until they’re just set. Add them to your bowl of carrots and onions.
  • Heat a little vegetable oil and sesame oil, then fry the rice by spreading it in a solid, even layer in the hot pan. Let the rice fry undisturbed for a few minutes, then toss it around a bit and let it fry again. Repeat this about four times.
  • Bring it all together! Carrots, peas, eggs just add them frozen, they’ll warm up as you incorporate them—green onions, plus a little more coconut aminos and soy sauce. If it still needs salt, add to taste and then it’s time to eat!
