  • 4 cups cooked rice (600 g / 950 ml)
  • 3 cups mushrooms (400 g)
  • ½ cup frozen peas (100 g)
  • 2 scallions (green onions / spring onions)
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce


  • Heat up the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok on high heat. Add sliced mushrooms, and stir fry these until they have cooked through and reduced in size.
  • Add the cooked rice, rice vinegar, frozen peas, soy sauce and pepper to the wok, and stir fry for a minuted until the rice has warmed through.
  • Then, add some finely chopped scallions, stir them through, and serve.


  • If you like your fried rice more crispy, you might have to add more oil, and make sure to leave the rice to simmer in the oil to crisp up nicely.
  • If possible, avoid using overcooked rice. It tends to become mushy.
  • Always make sure to sautee the vegetables before adding any rice. This ensures that they are fully cooked through.
You can store leftover fried rice for up to 4 days in airtight containers in a refrigerator. Reheat it in a skillet or microwave, and serve it as quick and easy future meals.
This makes mushroom fried rice perfect for meal prep! You can prepare a big batch, and enjoy it with multiple meals through the week, either as a main course for lunch, or as a side dish with several dinners.
