Japanese | Fried Rice with Norivegan

Posted on January 18, 2017

I've been making fried rice for many years, without a recipe. I came across this recipe and love the addition of nori and black sesame seeds. My new favorite fried rice!

Yield: 4 servings

fried rice with nori


2 tablespoons grapeseed oil

2 cups brown rice, cooked and cooled

1 sheet toasted nori seaweed, cut into thin strips using kitchen shears

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon toasted black sesame seeds

2 green onions, thinly sliced



Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet set over high heat. Add the rice and cook, stirring until warmed through and just barely beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the nori along with the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine and serve immediately.

Brenda's tip: Fried rice is usually made with day-old rice. If I forget to make it in advance, I make it a few hours before I need it. Then spread it out on a sheet pan and put the sheet pan with rice in the refrigerator to cool down.
