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. As a kid, I couldn’t stand cauliflower unless it was covered in cheese. Now, I add into like…everything…I just love the crisp and tender texture of cauliflower.
Unlike the original fried rice recipe, I’ll be making a special sauce for this veggie fried rice. This is primarily because I’ll be using miso paste, which is really thick so turning it into a sauce will help distribute those tasty flavors.
The sauce can be prepared ahead of time, along with the rice, to save some time in the kitchen. Fried rice also reheats well, so you can always make the entire dish on a Sunday to enjoy for lunch or dinner during the week. Time is precious, especially in the evening!
The awesome thing about veg fried rice is that you can easily customize it to your preferences!
- Throw in tofu for some added protein and deliciousness!
- If you don’t have miso paste, no worries – leave it out and add more soy sauce.
- You can make this recipe soy-free by using coconut aminos or liquid aminos.
- Feel free to substitute with any of your favorite vegetables.
- Add a pinch of chili flakes or a drizzle of chili oil for a spicy kick.Let’s have some Chinese!
