No-Egg Fried Rice Recipe

No-Egg Fried Rice

This quick and simple no-egg fried rice recipe is filling and easy to make. It makes a great accompaniment to Chinese dishes or can be eaten as it is on its own.?

Using fresh ginger and a little fresh chilli gives this dish a tasty kick.The vegetables add an extra lightness to the dish. If you have all the ingredients then great, if not, try experimenting with the things you do have. When I make it I add whatever I have to hand.?


  • Rice (there’s usually portion measurements on the side of the bag!) I use Basmati as I think it holds its texture well
  • Seasame Oil (If you don’t have sesame, sunflower or vegetable oil will do instead)
  • Fresh ginger (about 2 cm in length) peeled and grated
  • A clove or two of fresh garlic peeled and crushed (if you don’t have a crusher, grate it on the finest setting)
  • Fresh red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • Broccoli and / or Cauliflower chopped into small florets (trees) You can use the stalk finely chopped too.
  • A fresh pepper deseeded and sliced into thin strips
  • A carrot peeled and chopped into thin sticks
  • A few frozen peas if you have them
  • Soy sauce (I prefer dark soy sauce but any soy sauce is fine)


Cook the rice following the instructions on the packet until all the water is absorbed and the rice is fluffy

In a wok or large deep sided pan add two tablespoonsful of seasame oil (it doesn’t need to be an exact amount)

Heat the oil on a medium high heat for a few minutes then add the broccoli, cauliflower, pepper and carrot and stir fry for 4 or 5 mins until they’re still crunchy but got some softness to them

Add the cooked rice, the chilli, garlic and ginger and stir well.?

Keep stirring and add the frozen peas. Keep stirring until the peas look like they’re cooked

Add lots of soy sauce to taste and serve.?
