This Lazy Vegan Fried Rice recipe is the result of a great collaboration with our sponsor Ling Ling. If you’ve been around for long, you know that I love Asian inspired foods. Rice, pasta, etc. are a staple in our pantry. However, sometimes I just don’t have time to wait the half hour or longer for rice to cook, then, of course, do all the work to fry it to make a yummy fried rice dish. That’s how this super easy and delicious recipe came about!
Lazy Vegan Fried Rice Recipe
Since I began my plant-based diet journey a few months ago, I have found that meal prep can be even more time-consuming. I work from home, so this makes it easier, but some nights I just don’t want to be in the kitchen for an hour. So, easy but healthy convenience foods are a must. The best part of this vegan fried rice recipe is that everyone in our house loves it. I don’t have to worry about making a second meal!
Ling Ling Fried Rice comes in multiple flavors, but the Chinese Style Vegetable Fried Rice is totally vegan and fits easily into my personal diet plan. Each box comes with 2 large servings, and they are separated in individual bags so it is super easy to make just one portion at a time if you want. In the recipe below, I am using both servings to feed our whole family. By adding a few extra ingredients I can make this a meal that is suitable for feeding 4-6 people instead of just 2.

The Ling Ling Chinese Style Vegetable Fried Rice comes complete with already cooked rice, that has been seasoned. It includes roasted red pepper pieces and roasted corn, along with high-protein and delicious edamame. It’s great by itself, but to make a box go a bit further and add more heft, I love doing this. Adding in extra vegetables makes it a delicious meal that has tons of nutrition and is satiating for my plant-based needs.
