  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil, or another high-heat oil
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 4 medium scallions, white and green parts separated and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups leftover cooked rice
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegan oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce (optional, or to taste)
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  1. Coat the bottom of a large skillet or wok with the oil and place it over medium heat.

  2. When the oil is hot, add the carrots and white parts of the scallions. Cook them for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the carrots begin to soften.

  3. Push the carrots and scallions to the side and add the garlic. Cook it for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, until very fragrant.

  4. Mix the garlic in with the carrots and scallions, then raise the heat to high. Add the rice, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sriracha.

  5. Stir-fry the rice, flipping it continuously with a spatula, until the liquid from the sauces dries up and the rice begins to crisp in spots, 4 to 5 minutes.

  6. Stir in the peas, sesame seeds, and green parts of the scallions.

  7. Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the sesame oil. Taste test and adjust any seasonings to your liking.

  8. Remove the skillet from heat. Divide onto plates and serve.
