It’s about time I share with you my all-time favorite way to eat vegetable fried rice.
Vegetable stir fried rice is a basic weeknight staple dish I make all the time just because it is so easy to whip together – it just so happens to be irresistibly tasty as well!
This really is the easiest of easy gluten-free stir fried rice recipes out there. Here is why:
- Uses ingredients you likely already have in your pantry and fridge. 6 Ingredients to be exact. // Balllerrrrr.
- No sesame oil, peanut oil, none of that nonsense.
- Frozen Veggies! Again, something you likely have hiding in the freezer!
This easy dish is perfect for when I’m craving fried rice but don’t feel like ordering it. Also, to this day I have not found a great gluten-free Chinese restaurant near me so it is easier to make this at home.
Using these oh-so-fabulous simple ingredients, you too can quickly whip together this comforting and filling dinner.
BONUS: Makes amazing leftovers! If there is any left over, that is.
I grew up loving vegetable fried rice – everything about it from little hunks of veggies to the tiny slices of scrambled egg. Heavennnnnnnnnn.
Finding a way to make this dish at home with simple ingredients was essential to me. I always have frozen peas, fresh carrots and eggs in my fridge.

Is this the most authentic vegetable fried rice recipe ever?
No. Does it taste freakin’ amazing and almost identical to restaurant fried rice? Absolutely!.
There are standard fried rice ingredients I never have on hand -Sesame Oil and Peanut Oil. What I DO have on hand? Butter and gluten-free soy sauce, of course.
For the oils I never have on hand (Our peanut allergy friends REALLY don’t need/want used in their fried rice anyways!) I use a little olive oil and butter.
TIP: Stirring in day-old white rice actually works the best!
This gluten free fried rice is for all of those people who need one of two things:
- Easy, quick dinner packed with veggies and protein.
- Vegetable fried rice free of gluten, dairy and peanuts (For all those allergy comrades of mine,we have your back!)
For whatever reason this simple recipe might appeal to you, I think we all can appreciate an easy dinner ready in 30 minutes using ingredients we already have on hand to satiate our vegetable stir fried rice craving.
