Vegan Fried Rice Recipe

By Earth of Maria

🔪Prep Time: 25 mins


1 cup Basmati rice, dry*

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (240g)

1 tbsp tahini

2 tbsp tamari

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp garlic salt

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp curry powder

1/2 tsp black salt

1 medium onion, chopped

7 oz shiitake mushrooms

5 oz green beans, trimmed

5 oz beansprouts

2 tbsp tomato paste


1Cook the rice according to packaging instructions, until soft and fluffy but not overcooked. This usually takes 15-20 minutes.

2Add the chickpeas, tahini, tamari, nutritional yeast, cumin, garlic salt, turmeric, curry powder and black salt to a mixing bowl. Stir together well and mash the chickpeas down lightly with a fork.

3Add the onion and the shiitake mushrooms to a non-stick frying pan or wok and sauté for 4-5 minutes, until the mushrooms soften. Then, add the beansprouts and green beans and stir for a further 2-3 minutes, until the beans are bright green.

4Stir in the chickpeas together with the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently, to combine the ingredients.

5Drain and rinse the rice, then transfer it to the frying pan. Turn down the heat to low and stir for 2-3 minutes, ensuring that the rice is well-coated in the chickpea 'egg' sauce.
