The Best Vegetarian Thai Fried Rice

2018-09-18 10:45 #0 by: Evelina

This is the BEST Thai fried rice recipe you will find! It tastes just like a restaurant dish! 

 This makes 5-6 servings. 

 What you’ll need:
  •  2 cups rice (I like brown)
  •  4 cups water (or however much needed to cook rice) 
  •  1 yellow onion 
  •  1 tablespoon fresh ginger 
  •  2 garlic cloves 
  •  2 bell peppers 
  • 1 cup Fresh green beans 
  • 2 carrots 
  • 1 Broccoli 
  •  1/2 cup Peas 
  •  1/2 cup Cilantro 
  •  1/2 cup spring onion 
  •  3/4 Thai basil (so important!) 
  •  Red hot pepper 
  •  2 eggs 
  • 1 cup crushed peanuts 
  •  3 tablespoon soy sauce 
  •  1.5 teaspoon brown sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste 
  •  1 teaspoon fish sauce 
  •  Sunflower or peanut oil 
 How to make it:
  1.  Cook rice. Set aside. 
  2.  Add chopped carrots and broccoli to a frying pan and sauté for 5 min with a little water just to cook the veggies a bit. 
  3.  Add oil, chopped yellow onion, hot pepper, garlic and ginger. Sauté for 5 min. 
  4. Add green beans, bell pepper, and peas. Sauté for 3 minutes. You don’t want the veggies to be soft or raw but rather crisp.
  5.  Set all of the veg mix into a large bowl.
  6.  Mix the curry, soy sauce, sugar and fish sauce in the frying pan and sauté for 3 minutes. 
  7. Add spring onion and Thai basil to pan and sauté for 30 seconds. 
  8.  Add rice. Turn off heat and stir the rice together with the sauce. 
  9.  Then in a large bowl add the rice mixture to the veg mixture.
  10.  Meanwhile fry the eggs in the pan like scrambled eggs. Add to big bowl. 
  11.  Serve the fried rice  topped with crush peanuts and cilantro.

Looks tasty. Is that ketchup or some other sauce on top?

I gotta try this! When I make fried rice, I usually "wing it" since my Asian pride doesn't allow me checking a recipe for Asian food, but I probably should cuz I'm not Thai :p

I made the mistake one time of not following a recipe for a Thai dish and all I could taste was fish sauce Laughing out loud So now I know that I need to follow a recipe.
