Intro: Fun, Easy Vegan Fried Rice!
This is a fun, easy vegan recipe that is balanced and nutritious. I thought to make this because many times new or un-experienced Vegan eaters have a hard time finding meals which are affordable and easy to make themselves. All of the ingredients in this recipe are easily available in most countries, and not extremely expensive either.
I had lots of fun making this project, and I hope you enjoy!
Step 1: Ingredients
300 grams of Rice (1 Cup)
80 grams of corn kernels (1/2 Cup)
2 cloves of garlic
1 or 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (or any unflavored oil)
2 tablespoons soy sauce (this can be changed according to preference)
Large Saucepan or Wok Pan Pot
Step 2: Cook the Rice
Boil about 1l of water.
Once it comes to a boil, place the packet of rice in the water. Make sure to leave an edge sticking out, so it is easier to remove later.
Wait 8-10 minutes, then remove carefully using a fork.
Shake out excess water carefully, and remove from the bag.
Step 3: Prep the Vegetables
Meanwhile, wash the carrot and zucchini, then peel the carrot.
Dice both the carrot and zucchini.
Peel onion and garlic, and chop into fine pieces.
Be careful when using knives! If you're under 15, please have an adult help!
Step 4: Cook Vegetables
Pour oil into a large saucepan or wok pan, and let sit on high heat until it begins to spread.
Put diced carrot, onion, and garlic into the pan, and let sit for 1-2 minutes.
Turn heat to medium once they begin to brown, and stir gently.
Then place zucchini into the pan, let cook for 2-3 minutes, and add corn.
Let the entire thing cook for 3 more minutes, and stir regularly to cook everything evenly.
Step 5: Combining the Final Ingredients
After the entire vegetable mixture has cooked for 3 minutes, add cooked rice, and stir until mixed.
Measure out about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, and add to the pan. Stir this well.
If you wish to add more or less of the soy sauce, it is completely preference-based, and can be changed easily.
Stir until everything is well combined, and let it cook for another minute or so.
After a minute, you're all done! Serve and enjoy! :-)
