If you love fried rice as much as I do, this sesame and edamame version is absolutely going to become your new favorite quick weeknight fix. It’s slightly sweet, a little salty, heavy on the fresh ginger and toasted sesame flavor. To make it lighter than a standard Chinese takeout order, I swapped out the white rice for brown to up the fiber, reduced the amount of oil and sugar, and added edamame for added vegetarian protein.
Feel free to modify the recipe to add whatever vegetables or proteins you like, but one ingredient is an absolute must: the sesame oil! It’s essential in order to get that deep, toasted flavor.
