“Fried” Rice Vegan Recipe | High Carb Low Fat

vegan fried rice recipe

If you know me, you know that rice is my favorite food. I eat it almost every single day. Sometimes I eat it twice a day! I particularly love the taste of fried rice. However, I also love the feeling you get when you eat low fat vegan food! Eating a low fat meal makes you feel light and energized. Fried rice is traditionally made using a lot of oil and oil is the biggest source of dietary fat. That is why I use this alternative recipe to create delicious “fried” rice, without using any oil.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 cup corn kennels
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Tofu (optional)

Instructions:

1. Cook the rice and let it cool down afterwards. Once the rice has cooled down, transfer it from the cooking pot into a bowl and put it in the fridge to sit over night.

2. Add the chopped garlic, onion and diced carrots to a non-stick frying pan. Cook them over high heat for 2-3 minutes.

3. Add the peas and corn kennels and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

4. Add the rice and soy sauce. Stir it in properly and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the rice is hot. Do not overcook the rice.

5. Fry the tofu in a separate non-stick frying pan and add to the otherwise finished dish.

6. Enjoy your vegan no-fry “fried” rice!
