I am so excited about today’s new recipe – this Vegan Fried Rice is everything we all need right now. Tastes better than takeout, packed with veggies and plenty of comforting carbs. Uh, that sounds like a win to me!

The key to making fried rice is using day old rice. So, plan ahead of time and cook up some rice the day before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I guess you don’t HAVE to follow this step, but it is highly recommended.

How to make Vegan Fried Rice

To make this more legit, I used vegan eggs – I know everyone doesn’t have access to these, so you can swap them for tofu if you have to, but if you can find vegan eggs, use them. They make this stuff taste like the real deal.

A couple of ingredients that aren’t traditional (but definitely make this recipe super tasty) are hoisin sauce and my favorite vegan chicken bouillon. The addition of these 2 things makes a HUGE difference in the flavor. Trust me.

This is going to be everyone’s new favorite side – I promise!
