Spicy Fried Veggie Rice

Who doesn’t love Chinese Fried Rice?

 

I love Chinese food, but we can’t all afford to get takeaways all the time, and our waistlines might not appreciate it either. So I created this super easy fried rice dish being inspired by other dishes I’d seen on Instagram.

 

TIP –Β Buy frozen vegetables like peas and sweetcorn, they’re cheaper, last way longer and taste exactly the same

 

Ingredients

  • Coconut oil/cooking oil
  • Brown Rice
  • 1 Onion (diced)
  • 1 Garlic Glove (grated)
  • 1 Red Pepper (diced)
  • 1 Courgette (half moons)
  • 1 Carrot (grated)
  • 5 Mushrooms (diced)
  • Frozen Sweetcorn
  • Frozen Peas
  • Frozen French Beans
  • Soy sauce/Tamari
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chilli Flakes
  • Paprika
  • Optional use of nut butter

 

I love to serve this with smashed avocado and sesame seeds and roasted cherry tomatoes.

 

This is such a super easy method and can be so quick, perfect for batch cooking for lunches too.

 

Method

  • Put rice on to cook
  • Fry off the garlic and onions and pepper in the oil of your choice
  • Add the courgette and mushrooms
  • Add the frozen vegetables and cook until completed defrosted
  • Add the spices and soy sauce
  • Then add the grated carrot (I leave this until last so it retains its vibrant colour
  • When the rice is done add it to the vegetables and stir in, taste and add flavour where needed
  • Plate up with Smashed avocado and sprinkle sesame seeds and roasted tomatoes on the top

So tasty and so fast to make. I love this and it has been a constant favourite of mine this year and my sister loved it too!
