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.

Easy Vegan Fried Rice

Yesterday, I had the joy of catering a vegan lunch for a group of students from a university in Jamaica. I served them hot dogs, BBQ Soy Curls Sliders topped with coleslaw and the menu was a huge hit. I plan to replicate the BBQ soy curls and coleslaw recipes to share with my readers because I made them without a recipe.

I have been doing facebook live videos, where you can see me in my kitchen prepare recipes that are included here on my website, so please check them out and also like my page Healthier Steps, thank you!

    This was really good! I was looking for an easy, pantry-friendly vegan fried rice. I substituted the peppers for broccoli only because I didn’t have peppers. This was easy, delicious, and healthy. It will definitely be a weekly addition to our menu. Thank you!

    I just made this tonight and my family loved it! I was in a dark place with the healthy food I was making making me regret my life choices until I stumbled across your website. I knew healthy food could taste good and this proved it. I tweaked it a bit by adding fresh pineapple and tofu that I marinated over night with liquid aminos, orange juice, ginger and orange zest. I also omitted the oil. OMG!!! I’m definitely making again. Thank you for resuscitating my healthy lifestyle goals!!!

    Hi, I loved this quick recipe! It didn’t say when to add the frozen peas so I added them shortly after the carrots.

    Yummy. I served with breaded barbeque tofu and barbe-fried chicken for those who do not like tofu.
