Vegetarian Fried Rice

Once you make this Vegetarian Fried Rice you’ll be hooked. Because it tastes just like in the restaurants but really is better. Want another Chinese inspired recipe? Chinese Squid Stir Fry!

Better because there are no msg’s and you really can save enough a lot of money too.

I like to make this rice a bit spicy and will add some red chili paste to achieve that.

If you like really spicy rice add a bit more, I made it more on the mild side so a child can eat this too. 

Vegetarian Fried Rice


  • The trick to making GOOD fried rice is to cook the rice the day prior, I like to cook my rice always in a “rice cooker” it cooks it just perfectly every time.
  • Then I will remove it from the rice cooker and leave it uncovered for 24 hours on the shelf.
  • In which I will use for the next day, to make this recipe.

Leaving it on the shelf for 24 hours allows it to dry out enough to make the most perfect fried rice.


  • Then when your ready to make the rice you will simply add the cooking oil to the pan and then dump the rice out frying it till it reaches the level of cripsyness you desire.
  • Once it has you then can remove the rice, add then place 1 tbsp of sesame oil back into the pan along with the sliced mushrooms and chopped red peppers. 
  • Once mushroom and peppers have become soft add back in the rice and mix well.
  • Add in the seasonings and saute all together on medium to low heat for another 5 minutes and serve.
  • That’s it, chinese mushroom fried rice is ready to enjoy!

Feel free to saute some chicken, shrimp or beef on the side and mix that in if desired. 

Vegetarian Fried Rice


Yes and No, Yes because rice and all the ingredient in this dish are gluten free. But no if you use Soya Sauce, most soya sauces have gluten in them.
