Easy Vegan Fried Rice

Why bother to have takeout when you can prepare this delicious Easy Vegan Fried Rice recipe at home in a heartbeat? It goes well with my Cauliflower Nuggets recipe or my General Tso’s Tofu recipe.

I have 2 videos of me preparing the fried rice, the first one I did live on Facebook and the second one is the Tasty style overhead video.

I used Bragg liquid aminos as the soy sauce alternative but you can substitute with coconut aminos (soy-free) or tamari (wheat-free) Also, you can substitute your favorite veggies in this dish or the brown rice for quinoa or cauliflower rice.
