Oil Free Stir Fried Rice (Vegan, WFPB)

I recently posted my oil free crispy tofu recipe as well as my orange glazed tofu recipe and I thought that it was time to share what I love to have under both of those tofu recipes. My stir fried rice is extremely simple and I would recommend that you change out the vegetables to fit your favorite and add in different seasonings if you'd like. But for me I love the simplicity of the recipe, and how quickly this meal can be put together. I know a lot of people will question whether or not you can truly stir fry rice without oil, and that I one of the reasons I wanted to get this posted now. The answer is that you can most certainly cook and sauté with water or vegetable broth what you might otherwise have only believed could have been cooked using oil. I love using this recipe as an example to show individuals and families that are looking into and making the transition to a whole food plant based diet that oil free cooking is both easy to do and delicious.

Here's what you will need!

  • 2 cups of cooked brown rice

  • 2 lbs of frozen vegetables (I love using one bag of green beans and one bag of peas & carrots)

  • 1 tbs soy sauce

  • Large pot or dutch oven

  • Stove


  1. Cook your frozen vegetables for 5-8 minutes on a low to medium heat with the lid on for 5 minutes

  2. Stir in the rice and soy sauce

  3. Cook for another 5 minutes with the lid off
