Vegan Spring Fried Rice is so easy to make and indulgently delicious, loaded with fresh peas, carrots, and asparagus!

Making fried rice is a great way to use up leftover brown rice. You could also substitute cooked quinoa or millet. I sauteed onions, garlic, spring onions, and ginger.

Then I added the veggies and cooked them for about 3 minutes. Rice was added with a bit of sesame oil, and voila! This delicious beauty was ready to be served. I served it with some soycurls, and my family enjoyed it. I didn’t make enough because it was all gone.
