Homemade Veggie Fried Rice Hip2Save

Making homemade fried rice at home is a super easy and delicious way to use up odds and ends from your fridge. Prepare rice the night before for an even quicker meal! Customize this recipe to the type of veggies and add ins your family likes. This also happens to be a yummy idea for a satisfying Meatless Monday family meal.

Veggie Fried Rice

(Adapted from

makes about 4 servings


3 cups cooked brown rice (I used quick cooking rice)
2 and 1/2 cups chopped veggies (I used a mix of red onion, shredded carrots, edamame, corn & peas)
1 clove minced garlic
pinch of ground ginger
pinch of red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 eggs plus 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon of sesame oil

Making Fried Rice Hip2SaveDirections: Heat wok in your largest skillet on medium high heat and cook/brown eggs on both sides with a little sesame oil (cook eggs more like a well done pancake as opposed to scrambled eggs). Move cooked eggs to cutting board, chop, and set aside. Heat canola oil in pan and add onions, garlic, carrots, ginger, and red pepper flakes. After a couple minutes, add rice and remaining veggies to pan. Let fry a couple minutes and stir occasionally. Then add soy sauce and sesame oil.

Tip: Cold rice from the night before is a little drier and works great for stir fry. Next time you cook rice, cook a large batch and consider freezing it for future batches of fried rice.

We are huge fried rice fans in our house and everyone loves this method of cooking it at home! Enjoy!

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.
