Veggie Egg Fried Rice

This Veggie Egg Fried Rice will give you total takeout vibes!

A few weeks ago I opened my fridge door wanting something delicious and crave worthy to appear but my near empty fridge didn’t provide. Staring back at me were a couple of peppers, a half empty bottle of Just Egg, some celery and a single carrot. I was in desperate need of a trip to the grocery store but just wasn’t in the mood to leave the house.

Remembering we had a bit of rice left in the pantry, I got cooking. Surprisingly, with what felt like a lack of ingredients kicking around I created a dish that gave me the takeout vibes I was desperately in the mood for.

10 Easy Steps to Make Veggie Egg Fried Rice

  1. Make the rice & set aside.
  2. Chop all the veggies.
  3. Combine Just Egg, chili garlic sauce and black salt together then whisk and set aside.
  4. Melt some butter in a pan over medium heat.
  5. Cook the chopped veggies for 5 minutes in the melted butter.
  6. Form a space in the middle of the pan and add the egg.
  7. Let the egg cook for 2 minutes.
  8. Continue cooking the egg for 4 more minutes while scrambling to combine with the veggies.
  9. Add rice and soya sauce. Fry for 6 minutes.
  10. Plate & enjoy!

Equipment

  • 1 small pot
  • 1 large pan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup liquid Just Egg
  • 1 teaspoon black salt (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce such as Huy Fong Chili Garlic Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon vegan butter
  • 1/4 small onion finely diced
  • 2 stalks celery finely diced
  • 1 small carrot peeled, finely diced
  • 1 medium orange pepper finely diced
  • 1 medium yellow pepper finely diced
  • 1 medium green pepper finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon liquid aminos/soya sauce
  • salt + pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Rinse the rice a few times to get rid of some of the starch. Combine the rice and water, bring to a boil and reduce heat to low for ten minutes. Remove from heat and let sit while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the liquid egg, black salt and chili garlic sauce. Set aside.
  • Heat a large pan over medium heat. When hot add 1 tablespoon of the vegan butter. Once the butter is melted add the onion, celery, carrot, orange, yellow and green pepper. Cook 5 – 6 minutes until soft. Add salt and pepper then mix to combine.
  • Form a space in the center of the pan then add remaining teaspoon of butter. When butter is melted add egg. Let egg cook in the center for 2 minutes.
  • Begin slowly scrambling every 30 seconds combining the veggies and egg. Cook for 4 minutes longer.
  • Add rice and liquid aminos/soya sauce (your preference) to the pan and mix to combine. Fry the rice for 5 – 6 minutes. Add salt + pepper and mix to combine. Remove from heat and serve!

Notes

  • For a fluffier fried rice make the rice ahead and store it in the fridge until you are ready to cook the veggie egg fried rice!
