Original post…

When we need a quick, easy, and crowd pleasing weekday dinner, savory Veggie-packed Fried Rice is always a win.

Perfect by itself or along side other veggies or proteins, one of the reasons we love fried rice (besides the fact that it’s delicious!) is that it’s so versatile.

It uses up any vegetables and rice, and can be adapted to tastes, adding in favorite vegetables and any additional protein desired (tofu, chicken, egg).

Here’s the basics of what you’ll need:

some rice and/or cauliflower rice


green onions

yellow onions

gluten-free tamari or gluten-free soy sauce

and a touch of rice wine vinegar.

After that, you’ll need:

2-3 cups of chopped veggies such as carrots, broccoli, snow peas, spinach or other greens, mushrooms, or even mung bean sprouts.

My son loves his with egg, broccoli, snow peas and carrots. In this one, I also threw in some mushrooms and mung bean sprouts because I had some in the fridge.

A few bonus benefits… it only uses one pan!

So let’s make it!

All you do is saute some onion and garlic in a large saute pan, then add in your cauliflower rice if using and rice. Break up any pieces and cook until warm.

Add in your veggies and saute. (Some days, I switch it up and saute the vegetables right after the onion and toss in the rice last… it’s a very forgiving recipe!)

Then add in gluten-free tamari and rice wine vinegar and cook until warm and veggies tender enough.

And it heats up well the next day for lunch if you make a large enough quantity.

Super quick, easy and in time you have a warm, cozy meal or side dish!

I’ve also added instructions below for adding in a cup of cauliflower rice if you’re looking for some additional nutrients.

You can add the cauliflower rice at any ratio you like — I know people who like a 50/50 split of rice: cauli-rice but my family prefers just 1 cup cauliflower rice to 2 cups rice.

If you want to try the cauliflower rice, you can purchase the cauliflower rice already made (many places like trader joes sell it in bags) or you can make your own.

I’ve provided directions below but it’s super easy… you essentially just run cauliflower florets through a food processor until it’s pulsed into “rice”.

And when you make it, it’s still one pan and tastes amazing!

In fact, no one seems to notice the addition of 1 cup cauliflower rice. And my kids and husband are not big cauliflower fans… but they love this rice!

And you can’t see a difference. Below is the rice made with 1 cup cauliflower rice and it looks like fried rice to me!
