  • 2 c Any long grain White Rice cooked and refrigerated
  • 2 Vegan Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Vegan Margarine
  • 1 c Peas and Carrots defrosted
  • 1/4 Onion diced
  • 1-2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp Sesame Oil or more to taste
  • pinch Pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Salt or more to taste
  • 1 green onion diced


  • The night before you plan to make this recipe, I highly recommend cooking your rice and refrigerating it. It seems to fry up much better this way.
  • In a large saute pan, add a bit of oil along with diced onions and defrosted frozen peas and carrots. 
  • Meanwhile, in another pan, scramble your Vegan Eggs in skillet. Using a blender or Nutribullet creates a fluffier end product. Stir as little as possible, taking care that the pan is not too hot or it will stick. Oil is necessary to prevent this.
  • Add the rice to the veggies along with a tbsp of vegan margarine. Stir fry for a minute or two. 
  • Add the soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Stir fry until desired texture is reached. To get those somewhat browned, crispier edges, try to allow some time in between stirring.
  • Add in the Vegan Egg along with a drizzle of sesame oil to finish (if desired).
  • Garnish with scallions and a sprig of fresh parsley. Serve with my Vegan Orange Chicken recipe!
