Gluten Free Egg Fried Rice

The biggest downside to being gluten-free is all the gluten-filled food you miss out on! If you’re here searching for GF recipes, then you already know this!

This also means that my kids miss out on a lot of different home-cooked meals that other moms make. But, over the years, I’ve tested and tweaked gluten-free recipes from around the web and I love sharing them here!

One of my family’s favorites is egg fried rice (insert your choice of protein here) and this recipe is the best!


I love how colorful this meal is! It’s chock full of veggies, clean protein, and yummy flavors! If you plan on feeding more than 2, you’re going to double or triple this recipe!

Full disclosure: I am not a super amazing chef! I’ve got a few recipes I’ve mastered and this is one of them. I have to let my cookware take 97% of the credit. I prefer this saute pan over saucepans for a lot of recipes because of the size and depth of the pan!

Plus it heats really evenly and has a lid, making it really versatile.

The other thing I like to do when I cook is to do all my prep beforehand. I do all my chopping and measuring and then place everything in these bowls! They’re from Joanna Gaines’ ‘Hearth & Hand‘ at Target. Honestly? Joanna could design and sell a port-a-potty and I’d probably buy it! I love her aesthetic and the entire line is show worthy! Even if you don’t cook, the ‘props’ you have in your kitchen will sure make it look like you do! 😂

Adding the egg is the trickiest thing about this entire process but it isn’t rocket science. You just need to clear a small enough space to dump your egg and then make sure you let it cook 15-30 seconds before mixing it in. If you really love egg in your fried rice, you can even add a second one!

Add cooked protein, rice, and gluten-free Tamari or soy sauce to wok then toss well to combine. I taste it while it’s in the final stages of cooking together to make sure it’s seasoned enough. This is the time to add any additional sauce, salt, and/or pepper!

Then it’s time to dish it up and serve! This stuff is sooo good and restaurant worthy! Your entire family will love this dish and it’s also a good way to sneak in some veggies!

If you try this you gotta let me know! Or if you have a special version your family does, tell me in the comments below.

Bon Appetite!

Gluten Free Egg Fried Rice

Print Recipe


2 Cups Jasmin Rice – already cooked (I use Trader Joes frozen jasmine rice but if you don’t have one close, you can get a different brand HERE)
1 Cup Ham, diced, or 1 Chicken Breast, cut into bite-sized pieces and seasoned with salt & pepper
1/2 Cup Frozen Mixed Vegetables
2 Green Onions, chopped
1 Garlic Clove, minced
1 Egg
3 Teaspoons Sesame or Wok Oil, divided
2 Tablespoons gluten-free Tamari or soy sauce (dish will not be GF if using soy sauce unless it specifically says “Gluten Free”)


Whisk egg with 1 teaspoon oil in a small dish then set aside.

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add seasoned protein of choice then stir fry until cooked through and remove to a plate.

Heat remaining teaspoon oil in the wok then add frozen mixed vegetables and green onions.

Stir fry until tender, about 2 minutes, then add garlic and cook for 30 more seconds.

Push vegetables to the side of the wok then add egg and sesame oil mixture into the center and scramble.

Add cooked protein, rice, and gluten-free Tamari or soy sauce to wok then toss well to combine.

Serve immediately.

      1. How do you cook your rice? Do you use a rice cooker? Also, I saw in your stories you use a griddle but on this recipe you use a frying pan. What is the difference in taste?

        1. There isn’t a difference in taste for me! I use the pre-cooked packaged rice from Trader Joes. You can purchase those most anywhere you shop or just cook a cup of rice (should be 3 when fully cooked). You can use a rice cooker or just boil and simmer on stove top!
