Vegetable Fried Rice ~ A Quick Dish That Appeals To The Whole Family


This is by far one of my favorite side dishes to feed my kids. It is one of the only ways I can get them to load up on their veggies and give them a bit of protein all at once!

My kids could eat fruit all day long but they always, always snub their veggies unless I dish them up with a heaping helping of carbs mixed in. This vegetable fried rice also makes a wonderful main dish with a little bit of shrimp or teriyaki chicken mixed in.

Have you ever made fried rice? What’s your favourite flavour preference?

  1. 4 cups cooked rice
  2. 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  3. 3/4 cup frozen peas
  4. 1 large carrot, diced
  5. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  6. 2-3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  7. 3 eggs, beaten
  8. 2 Tablespoons butter
  9. salt & pepper to taste
  1. Once rice is cooked, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add peas, carrots and onion powder and cook until vegetables are slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add rice and soy sauce, and cook stirring often, for an additional 5 minutes.
  2. Push rice mixture to the sides of the pan to create a hole in the center of the pan. Melt butter in the center of the pan then add eggs, cooking until scrambled. Once eggs are cooked, stir eggs with the rice mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
