Quick, Easy, and Vegetarian

Our Veggie Fried Rice is exactly what you need for your next meatless Monday lunch or dinner! This vegetarian version of a classic fried rice is simple and delicious. The recipe calls for your choice of frozen vegetables but it can also be a great opportunity to clean out the vegetables in your fridge. Try carrots, onions, broccoli, corn or any other vegetable you have on hand that you want to add. Just keep in mind that raw vegetables should be added with oil in the wok before the rice so that they have plenty of time to soften up.
