This Easy Healthy Vegan Vegetable Fried Rice is made with tasty ingredients like miso paste and sesame seeds and plenty of vegetables. This recipe is totally egg-free and vegan.
This vegetable fried rice contains a TON of veggies – peas, corn, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower.
When you think of fried rice, you are probably thinking of dirty unhealthy oil-packed fried rice from your local Chinese restaurant.
That’s not the case here! This vegan fried rice is actually quite healthy. It’s loaded on veggies, I used brown rice, and it’s seasoned with gut-friendly miso.
You can have tasty food, that is made healthy. You don’t always need the tons of processed inflammatory oils, and other nasty stuff to get a good tasty meal.
How To Make Vegan Fried Rice:
The method is pretty darn simple. Everything is stir-fried in a pan, then you add the miso sauce to coat everything and season it. Serve and eat up!
The recipe is perfect as a side dish, to maybe accompany a piece of cooked tofu. Also, the fried rice is even better the next day, after the flavors have had a chance to mingle in the fridge.
