Ingredients
  

  • 2 cup white rice
  • 16 oz frozen peas and carrots
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 4 eggs (*replace with scrambled tofu for vegan)
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce (Kikkoman Teriyaki is our favorite)
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp ginger paste
  • ½ tbsp minced garlic
  • splash of lime juice
  • 2 tbsp vegetable broth
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (or more if your rice is too sticky)
  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Cook the rice. In a rice cooker or instant pot, add the 4 cups of water and 2 cups of rice. On the stove, bring 4 cups of water to a boil with the rice. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 20 minutes.
  • In a pan, heat oil. Add onion and brown (about 5 minutes).
  • Add the frozen vegetables and allow them to heat up. Allow them to cook until they're tender.
  • Next crack the eggs into the pan and continue to mix it as the egg cooks.
  • Once they are all done, mix the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, hoisin, and teriyaki sauce in.
  • Once the rice is done, mix it in to the pan with the egg vegetable mixture. Once it's all mixed, add the vegetable broth a bit at a time to help moisten the rice and prevent it from being too sticky.

Notes

For a vegan version, ensure your teriyaki sauce is also vegan. You can also opt to make your own at home. For this recipe I've used store-bought to save time.
