Tools You’ll Need

  • Wok or large skillet

  • Sharp knife

  • Mixing bowls

  • Sturdy spoon for stir-frying or a wok spatula

What to Serve With Fried Rice

  • Chicken Chow Mein

  • Chinese Dry-Fried Green Beans

  • Easy Orange Chicken
  • Sesame Chicken with Broccoli


  1. If using freshly cooked rice (as opposed to day old) spread it out on a baking sheet or two large plates to cool. **
  2. In a small bowl beat the eggs together with ½ teaspoon sesame oil, 1/2 teaspoon coconut aminos and ¼ teaspoon salt.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a large saucepan or wok (if you have one) over medium heat. Add the carrots and cook for 3-4 minutes until slightly softening. Add the onions and cook for 4 minutes longer, until both onions and carrots are tender. Add the garlic to the pan and cook for 1 minute longer. Remove vegetables from the pan and set aside in a bowl.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the empty pan and quickly fry the eggs, moving them around until they’re just set and there are no longer any wet parts. As soon as the eggs are cooked, take them out of the pan and add them to the bowl with the carrots and onions.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon sesame oil to the empty pan and fry the rice by spreading it in an even layer. Let the rice fry without disturbing it for 2-3 minutes at a time before tossing it and then frying it for another 2-3 minutes. Do this for a total of 3-4 times.
  6. Add the carrot mixture to the pan along with the peas, eggs, green onions, remaining coconut aminos and soy sauce (or Tamari) to the pan and stir quickly over medium heat until it is all fully combined. Season to taste with salt.
