Easy Vegan Fried Rice

This fried rice is ready in less than 30 minutes. It only requires a few ingredients plus is healthy.

Who doesn’t love easy recipes that are healthy and delicious. This rice is soy-free, vegan and healthy.

This recipe is one of my to go recipes. We Puerto Ricans love to eat rice. Rice is a staple in my kitchen. When I make white rice I make sure to always have leftovers so I can make this recipe. This meal is also great for meal prepping.

For this recipe I used; purple cauliflower, peas, carrots and broccoli but you can add as many more veggies as you want. Also I added my sofrito as a base and replaced the soy sauce for coconut aminos.

Puerto Rican Sofrito

This is the way my auntie used to make fried rice Puerto Rican style. We love flavors and creativity in the kitchen.
