Our Veggie Fried Rice recipe is super versatile. Don’t have any zucchini? Sub out another veggie! No garlic scapes? Use two cloves of garlic instead! .. you get the idea 🙂

- 2 cups long-grain white rice, rinsed
- 4 cups cold water 1 (1-inch)

- In a pot with a tight fitting lid, add the rice and 4 cups cold water. Put in the ginger and 1 tsp salt. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 - 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside for about 10 minutes.
- Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. When it is hot, pour in the sesame oil. Add the onions & ginger; stir-fry for 1 minute until fragrant. Stir in the rest of the veggies. Cook for about 2 minutes. Pour in the eggs and stir-fry until they are cooked.
