This vegan fried rice is nourishing and delicious, yet takes only about 30 minutes to prepare. When I grocery shop, I am inspired by the produce items that are in season, because they are the freshest and most flavorful ingredients to use in a recipe.
*If you don’t have a wok, no worries, just use the largest pan you have. Give every step of cooking a bit more time because woks are hotter and cook quicker. You may need a bit more oil as well.
