Vegan Fried rice

When I was a kid, who am I kidding up until I was a good 18 years old I was an extremely picky eater. When we ate out I ate the same exact thing with no variation. So, when it came to Asian style food I was just as picky and my goto was always Fried Rice, only.

Now I see all the glorious food I was missing out on. I still love a good fried rice but now I make my own restaurant-style vegan fried rice and it is SO tasty!

Not only is it tasty but it’s easy to make.

The key to good fried rice is to start with cold rice. I typically will make my rice the day before and just stick it in the fridge until I am ready to start making it.

You could also do this the morning of and it will have enough time to get nice and chilly.

You can play with the vegetable combinations. I always like peas, carrots, and onions in my fried rice.

I like this dish with a tasty tofu. The tofu is easy to make but can be a bit time consuming because good tofu just takes time.

If you are into mock meat this tastes GREAT with the addition of a Gardein “chicken” tenders chopped up.

My husband had to work late so I sent him a big bowl of this for dinner and I got a text from him exclaiming this meal was amazing with the addition of the tenders.

This won 5 stars all around in this household.
