Vegetable Fried Rice

"Sesame oil gives this dish a nutty flavor, but if you don't have it, you can use canola oil instead. For the fluffiest fried rice, start with cold rice - it won't clump like warm rice can. Recipe is from Woman's World."

    I really enjoyed the flavour imparted by the sesame oil. This versatile recipe would be good with the addition of tofu or chicken. It was also very quick to prepare and cook - very much appreciated when time is short. Made for ZAAR STARS TAG GAME.

    I must say that I like this better than the Chinese Restaurant stuff. This have a "cleaner" flavor and isn't cluttered with unneeded fat and salt. I don't keep soy sauce because of the heavy salt factor but the lime juice and walnut oil that I used produced a great flavor. It was faster for me to just mince the carrot than dig out the food processor and then wash it all for the small amount of carrot needed for 2 servings. This would make be a full meal deal with shrimp added :D. Made for Zaar Stars.

    I really loved the color of this fried rice. I shredded 1 1/4 cup of carrots so I used them all. This was good. But I think another time I'll try 1 tbs of olive oil and 1 tbs of sesame oil. It would be a nice balance. Cause I feel that it tasted too much sesame oil even though I like this taste. Thanks Lainey. Made for Holiday tag.

    I made this for ZWT 4 challenge of using 5 veggies and stir fry. I make fried rice often and it's always when I have a bit of fish, chicken, seafood, beef, or pork leftover from night before. For this, I had about 2 oz grilled wild caught salmon leftover from last night's dinner. Along with salmon, I added not only 5, but 7 different vegetables. They are carrots (cubed and microwaved with a bit of water for 1 minute), peas, green pepper, green onion, slivers of sugar snap peas, onion, and gobo which is Japanese burdock (great for digestion and crunch). I wanted to keep some crunch to this fried rice and cut onion and green pepper about 1 x 1 in. Also, added 1 egg while stir frying. Instead of using all sesame oil, I used both sesame and canola oil. Thank you Lainey for posing this yummy recipe!

    This was VERY yummy. Best fried rice I've had in a while. I used green pepper instead of peas and used 2 tbs. of sesame oil to fry everything in. I used my wok. Made for ZWT4!

    Very tasty! I subbed zucchini for the red pepper because I used my last red pepper the other day for something. I also added 2 beaten eggs to sneak some extra protein into the kids. ;) Made for ZWT 4.
