This Take-out Style Fried Rice is packed with colorful veggies like carrots, peas, and onions, and happens to be totally vegan and gluten-free. The ideal fast weeknight dinner.
I love fried rice, but when you order it in, it can come loaded with processed oils, sugars, and often eggs. So I made this quick and easy fried rice recipe to mimic your favorite Chinese take-out, without the mystery ingredients.
Ingredients for Take-Out Style Fried Rice
Here’s what you need for this veggie-packed fried rice:
Oil. You can use avocado or another neutral-flavored oil.
Veggies. I make this fried rice with onions, peas, and carrots.
Rice. Make sure to use day-old cooked rice, which is dryer and will crisp up in the skillet.
Tamari. This is gluten-free soy sauce. You can use regular soy sauce if you’re not avoiding gluten.
Sesame oil. This has a strong flavor, so a little goes a long way.
Oyster or mushroom sauce. Make sure it’s vegetarian!
Storing Leftover Fried Rice
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days. You can reheat it on the stove or in the microwave to serve.
