One thing that I look forward to most on the weekends is spending time my kitchen. Nothing is better to me than enjoying a lazy Sunday by whipping up a delicious meal or baking a new treat.

Have you tried this Instant Pot Chicken Fried Rice yet? It’s so easy to make and is a pressure cooker version of this fried rice recipe.

But once Monday rolls around, I’m all about easy foods that are ready in no time. I don’t mind doing light cooking, but spending over an hour or so on dinner is just not appealing to me. I would rather save that for the weekends!

And this vegetable fried rice is a breeze to whip up! It only took about a half hour to prepare, perfect for those busy weeknight meals! And if you love veg fried rice, this is sure to be a favorite in your house. You can skip the takeout and make your own, as I guarantee it will taste just as good.

The best part about this homemade fried rice is that you can customize it depending on your tastes. I love when fried rice is prepared with scrambled eggs, so I knew I had to incorporate that into this dish.

How to make Chinese fried rice

The prep work for this vegetable fried rice is so simple! Here are the basic steps to making homemade fried rice:

  1. Start by scrambling your eggs in a pan, then remove to a plate.
  2. Sauté your veggies, add in some cooked rice, and then stir in some seasonings and soy sauce.
  3. Once the rice mixture has simmered, top with the scrambled eggs and sesame seed oil.

How to reheat fried rice

This easy fried rice recipe makes roughly 4 servings, so you may wind up with leftovers. If that’s the case, I recommend reheating the veg fried rice in a skillet with a drizzle of sesame oil. Avoid reheating fried rice in the microwave since that makes the scrambled egg in it rubbery.

Can you freeze fried rice?

Yes! However, the scrambled egg in this homemade fried rice may change texture upon being frozen. If you know you’ll be freezing this easy fried rice recipe, I recommend freezing it without the scrambled egg. When reheating the rice, add the egg to the skillet then.

More tips for making simple fried rice

I prefer using cooked white rice in this recipe since that’s what our local Chinese restaurant uses. I’m sure you could use cooked brown rice if that’s what you prefer.

I use a frozen peas and carrots blend in this recipe. You should be able to find a similar blend in the freezer section of your local grocery store.

To make this vegetable fried rice a meal, add shrimp or diced chicken to bulk it up.
