Fried Rice with Sausage & Ginger

Fried Rice with Sausage & Ginger

This tasty fried rice dish is delicious with pork sausage or a plant-based sausage and lends itself well to any number of left-over veggies you have on hand. (And it works well as a combination of rice and cauliflower rice.)


3 Cups Rice, pre-cooked and cooled

2 Tbsp Peanut oil

½ Cup Red Onion, diced

2 Tbsp Ginger, freshly minced

1 ½ Tbsp Blue Duke, plus some as sprinkle just before serving

½ Cup Water Chestnuts, Sliced and chopped into pieces

1 – 2 Sausages, casing removed and cooked as a crumble

⅔ Cups Edamame, cooked and shelled (fresh peas also work)

½ Cup Carrots, finely grated

½ tsp Salt

Pinch of Blak Pepper, freshly ground

1 Tbsp Lemon zest

⅓ Cup Green Onions, sliced finely


  1. In a large saute pan, heat the peanut oil over high heat until nearly smoking.
  2. Add carrots, and let cook for 30-40 seconds. (Watch out – it will splatter a bit!) Then add the onion, ginger, water chestnut, cooked sausage crumble and edamame, stir-frying each for 30 seconds before adding the next.
  3. Add the rice, Blue Duke, salt and pepper and continue to stir over the heat.
  4. Serve warm garnished with a sprinkling of Blue Duke and green onions.
