Basic Fried Rice

Jo Zimny


I really like this recipe. You can use all sorts of things in it like shrimp, chicken, tofu or just eat it plain. I added some cooked green onion and celery to mine. If you add other things add a third egg. I prepared the rice a day ahead so it was good and cold when I made this recipe. I used brown long grain rice, but you can use white if you wish.

How to Make Basic Fried Rice


  • 1Make sure you have 4 cups of cold rice on hand. I made mine the day before.
  • 2Wash and chop the green onion. Lightly beat the eggs with the salt and pepper.
  • 3Heat a wok or fry pan and add 2 tbsp. of oil. When the oil is hot add the eggs and scramble until just done, don't let this dry out. Remove the eggs, and set aside. Clean out the pan.
  • 4Add the left over 2 tbsp. of coconut oil to the pan, add the rice and stir fry it for a few minutes breaking up the lumps. Add in the teriyaki sauce.
  • 5When the rice is heated through add the scrambled egg, mix it thoroughly. Add in the green onion and serve hot.
  • 6Enjoy!
