Description

Wondering what to fix for dinner? This Frozen Vegetable Fried Rice recipe is a lifesaver for those busy weeknights. It's a quick, easy, and incredibly versatile dish that's sure to become a staple in your meal rotation.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 - 3 cups frozen vegetable mix (or 1 10oz package)
  • 1 - 2 cups cooked rice (1 10oz frozen rice or microwavable rice pouches would also work)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup green onion

Optional Additions

  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Cooked chicken, shrimp or steak

Instructions

  1. Melt 2 tablespoon of butter over medium-high heat.
  2. Add your frozen vegetables to the hot pan and cover until the vegetables have thawed completely which can take 10 - 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in the cooked rice and 2 tablespoons soy sauce until blended.
  4. Push the rice and vegetables to one side of the pan and add 2 more tablespoons of butter to the empty side (we are making the scramble eggs).
  5. Once the butter has melted, add the beaten eggs, and gently stir them occasionally until almost set and firm (careful not to mix in the veggie and rice just yet!). 
  6. After the eggs have scrambled, not you can mix everything together, top with green onion and enjoy!

Notes

My favorite frozen vegetable blend is the Kirkland Premium Stir Fry Vegetables, but any blend will work! You can also substitute fresh vegetables.

I prefer white rice for this recipe, but cooked brown rice would work too.

If you are adding fresh garlic and ginger, add them to the pan with the frozen vegetables.
