Vegetarian Fried Rice with Vegetables

Vegetarian Fried Rice


Vegetarian Fried rice with vegetables is delicious, but most of us do not make it at home. When it’s purchased out, it’s mostly rice and few vegetables! I decided it’s about time I cooked it at home and gave it a healthy makeover. My husband is on a restricted salt diet and I can accommodate him too. My goal is to make a version that is at least 50% vegetables and use healthier rice than the standard white rice.

Vegetarian Fried Rice


This fried rice was a hit. It did not have the oil sheen common in restaurant versions and the extra vegetables kept it light and a healthy diet habit choice. I would definitely make this again and I’m sure it will become one of my favorite healthy recipes; it’s quick, easy, and tasty, which are my criteria for a repeat meal!
