If your only experience with fried rice is Chinese take-out, you’ll love this fresher-tasting, gluten-free version.
One of my favorite parts of hibachi is the fried rice! Whether you want it as a full meal or a side dish, you can’t go wrong with this hibachi fried rice recipe. Made with gluten-free soy sauce, and full of good-for-you vegetables, it is quick and easy to make, and is sure to be a big hit.
What You Need To Make Hibachi Fried Rice
- Rice – Jasmine, calrose, short-grain rice, and long-grain rice are some of my favs to use when cooking hibachi fried rice.
- Vegetables – I’ve used onions, corn and carrots, but you can also add in other veggies of your choice. If all you have is a bag of frozen vegetables, that’ll work just fine!
- Grated Ginger – Just two teaspoons of fresh grated ginger goes a long way in making this hibachi fried rice. The next time you’re at the store, pick up a knob of fresh ginger in the produce section. Once home, store it in the freezer to make it last longer.
- Soy Sauce & Toasted Sesame Oil – Along with the delicious taste, soy sauce also adds a nice brown color in the recipe. Although optional, the toasted sesame oil brings tons of nutty flavor to this hibachi fried rice.
- Avocado oil – When compared to traditional olive oil used in a lot of recipes, avocado oil will perform better when heated to high temperatures.
Adjust This Hibachi Fried Rice Recipe To Your Diet
- Make it Vegan: Use vegan butter and omit the egg.
- Make it Grain-Free: Substitute the rice for some cauliflower rice (the dish won’t get as crispy and “fried,” but will still taste delicious!)
- Make it Paleo: Use cauliflower rice, coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, and avocado oil instead of butter.
Tips For Making Hibachi Fried Rice
- Use rice you’ve made ahead of time instead of freshly cooked rice. Freshly cooked rice tends to clump together and does not crisp up as easily.
- For more protein, add some cooked shrimp or cubes of tofu!
- Consider varying the veggies like snow peas, broccoli florets and chopped zucchini for delicious additions.
