This recipe is extremely versatile and can be adapted to fit your taste buds. I whipped this up using what I already had in the house. My OAS can tolerate frozen peas, corn, and carrots. If those frozen vegetables lead to a reaction then substitute with others; I’ve used cooked broccoli in the past.

I thankfully can still consume sesame which I do use in this recipe; remove it if needed.

Quick Quarantine Fried Rice

Time: 25 minutes

  • 15 minutes - cook rice/prep ingredients

  • 10 minute sauté fried rice


  • 1 cup rice; cooked (I use Lundberg; Jasmine only takes 15 minutes to cook)

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 1tbsp sesame seeds

  • ½ tbsp ground ginger

  • 2 cloves or ½ tbsp garlic; minced

  • ¼ cup soy-free sauce (amount varies with your taste)

  • ½ tbsp chili paste

  • Frozen vegetable; peas, carrots, corn


  • Cook rice according to package instructions. While rice is cooking, take out and prep remaining ingredients for quick access.

  • In a large skillet over medium-low heat, add extra virgin olive oil and sesame oil.

  • Add sesame seeds, garlic, and ginger. Simmer for 1-2 minutes without browning the garlic or seeds.

  • Add the cooked rice; mix well. More olive oil may be needed if rice is too sticky; add accordingly in order to brown the rice.

  • Add frozen vegetables, chili paste, and soy sauce. Mix well and cook, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes.

  • Taste; add more soy sauce or chili paste to your liking.

  • Use spatula to create an even layer of rice in the skillet; cook on medium-high heat until the bottom is crispy.

  • Serve and enjoy!
