Ingredients for Healthy Fried Rice
Simple healthy ingredients....

Pre- Cooked White Rice - For this recipe I used Nishiki medium grain white rice. You can use brown rice if you prefer. I prefer to use white rice as they say brown rice may contain trace amounts of arsenic, a toxin that is absorbed from soil depending on where it is grown. White rice has less arsenic contamination because its outer layer is removed.


Organic Shredded Carrots - I like the Cal-Organic brand which you can get on Amazon. The organic shredded rainbow carrots are fun for a burst of color.


Sesame Oil - Kadoya Sesame Oil is my favorite. Sesame oil is made from sesame seeds and has a nice nutty, earthy flavor. It is full of antioxidants which may help in reducing your risk of developing chronic diseases.


Organic Coconut Aminos - You can use soy sauce for this recipe but I prefer Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos as it has significantly less salt than soy sauce and tastes just as good. Better for your heart health in the long run.


How to make Copycat Chinese Fried Rice


1: First make a batch of white rice. You need 3 cups for this recipe. I like to make a little extra in my rice cooker. For 4 cups of white rice you need 1 ½ cups of white rice and 2 cups of water.

2: Coat a large non stick skillet or wok with cooking spray - heat pan over medium heat and add in 2 eggs beaten, cook into scrambled eggs for about 2 minutes. Then remove from pan and set aside.

Recipe FAQ's


Is fried rice healthy?

Homemade fried rice is packed with fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, which makes it a great option to use in recipes as opposed to plain, white rice. The key is making it yourself so you control the ingredients.

How many calories are in a bowl of homemade fried rice?

There are approximately 209 calories in a one cup bowl of healthy homemade fried rice. Making this a perfect addition to your Weight Watchers meal plan.

How much fat is in a bowl of homemade fried rice?

There are 6.5 grams of fat in a one cup bowl of homemade veggie fried rice. Perfect for a low fat diet plan.

Can you freeze leftover fried rice?

Yes you can freeze your leftovers. Just like cooked rice, it's important to first cool fried rice as quickly as possible in the fridge. Then, transfer fried rice to freezer bags in portion sizes you will later need and expel as much air as possible. Flatten and label the bags and keep in the freezer for up to one month.


Expert Tips


  • Try adding more protein to your fried rice with fresh shrimp, chicken, chorizo or even pulled pork.

      It’s sold in grocery stores and on Amazon, it’s a good alternative to soy sauce
