Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup chopped cauliflower
  • 1 large chopped carrot
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn

The Sauce

Instructions

  • Rinse the uncooked rice to remove excess starch. I do this in a mesh strainer. 
  • Cook the rice according to the package instructions, but leave a little time off so the rice is just slightly undercooked. For example, I cook it for about 12 minutes while the package says 15 minutes.
  • Once the rice is cooked, stick it in the fridge to cool a little (unless you don't mind sticky fried rice.) I usually prep the rice the day before.
  • Heat a large skillet to medium heat and toast the sesame seeds a bit (about 3 minutes or so, stirring a few times.)
  • Add the broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots to the skillet along with 2-3 tbsp of water. Cover and let the veggies cook through until fork tender, about 8 minutes.
  • In the meantime, mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Add the peas, corn, and rice to the skillet. Mix in the sauce.
  • Cook until the rice is tender and hot, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Garnish your veggie fried rice with additional sesame seeds, or green onions, or serve as is!
