This Healthy Vegan Fried Rice is the perfect weeknight dinner, packed with plant-based ingredients like edamame, sugar peas, and carrots!


This recipe was sponsored by Bob’s Red Mill, a brand I trust and use in my own kitchen! All opinions are my own!


I can’t believe it’s taken me over 4 years of blogging to post a healthy vegan fried rice recipe, because making an easy stir-fry is one of my go-to weeknight meal ideas! This recipe uses edamame, sugar peas, and carrots for the vegetables (along with a few other veggies!), but it would be super customizable with any other ingredients you have on hand. Some other veggies you could try could also include broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, or even asparagus!

To make this fried rice even healthier, I used Bob’s Red Mill brown + wild rice blend for added protein and fiber. I love using brown rice because it adds this subtle nuttiness to the fried rice! Bob’s has a huge selection of whole grains, including millet and quinoa, which would also be great for this recipe!

Another thing that would be super delicious, and would add a seasonal autumn twist, would be to add some roasted butternut squash or pumpkin! Speaking of which, I simply cannot believe that we’re almost at OCTOBER. What happened to September?! I feel like this month flew by at such a faster rate than the summer!

Fall always goes by so fast for me because it’s my favorite season. Between my birthday, my fiancé’s birthday, apple picking, pumpkin carving, fall hikes with my dog, September always goes by quickly! Still, it’s been a great fall season so far, and I can’t wait for the upcoming holidays! :)


For some seasonal autumn favorites, try my vegan pumpkin mac and cheese or this pumpkin apple stew!

Ingredients

Fried Rice

  • 1 1/2 Cups Wild + Brown Rice Blend dried
  • Water for cooking see package
  • Avocado Oil for cooking
  • 8 oz Sugar Peas
