I’ve been making oil-free fried rice since before we removed meat and dairy from our diet. I’ve never been a big fan of oil and would omit it every chance I got. This is one of those recipes that I didn’t even think of sharing but after having people ask about it, I decided it was time.
Like most of my recipes, it’s also really easy.
Oil-Free Fried Rice
- 1/2 cup onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 cup carrots, diced
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 2-3 Tbsp’s Soy Sauce, Tamari or Braggs Liquid Aminos
- 4 cups cooked Brown Rice
- a little water as needed
- Heat skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle a few drops of water in the skillet to make sure it is hot.
- Once hot add the onions and garlic. Stir regularly. As the onions begin to brown (see the photo), pour a little water into the pan then give it a good stir. Continue to cook the onions repeating the step of adding water as often as necessary until the onions are translucent and soft.
- Add the veggies and stir them into the onions. Cover with a lid and cook until carrots are soft.
- Add the cooked rice and soy sauce and stir once more. Reduce the heat to low and heat until everything is warm.

You can add a little more umph by adding Gardein™ to the dish! Gardein is deliciously meat-free and really convenient. I cooked the Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick’n in a skillet in just a few minutes. It’s so easy, you don’t even need a recipe! Cook the chick’n until it is nice and crispy. While it is cooking, defrost the sauce packet in a bowl of warm water. Once it is defrosted simply snip the corner off the sauce packet and pour it over the Crispy Chick’n. Stir it quickly so that all of the chick’n gets covered.
This was a huge treat for my 5 year old. He kept asking for more, then finally said, “Can I just have the whole bowl.”
