For the last three months, I’ve really been working ahead recipe wise. It’s been pretty helpful because I now have months worth of content, I got to launch another blog, and I feel like I’m finally getting on top of some of the strictly business side of things. The only thing is – I’ve been waiting SO long to share this beauty with you!! Oh my gosh, Sheet Pan Fried Rice – let me count the ways!!

This Sheet Pan Fried Rice really is the answer to your prayers. It’s made easily on a sheet pan – so legit the world’s easiest cleanup. It’s packed with protein, carbs, fibre – all the things! The sauce is super yummy and you even mix it on the sheet pan. Then BAM – in the oven, and you have dinner for a few days! It’s probably the easiest meal prep with the least amount of dishes I’ve done in a while. I also love that it uses up some great pantry and freezer ingredients so it’s really perfect all year round.

Sheet Pan Fried Rice Ingredients

I love how simple the ingredients are for this dish:

  • Edamame
  • Tofu
  • Brown Rice
  • Green Onions
  • Pineapple (yasss)
  • Cashew pieces
  • Tamari or soy sauce
  • Oil (I used sesame)
  • Sriracha 

That’s it! love all of these ingredients and they work together to turn this into an incredibly filling meal. I think out of the whole list, my favourite ingredient is the CASHEWS! They genuinely shocked me and I loved the flavour and texture so much. You already know I’m a cashew addict, so I’m 100% putting cashews into every fried rice ever from now on.

Green Plate Club

This recipe is from my friend Kiersten’s new site: Green Plate Club! This isn’t sponsored (it is an affiliate link), but I knew immediately that I wanted to help her share this new fantastic service that I know would come in handy for so many of you guys. 

Green Plate Club is an online meal plan service that’s perfect if you’re like me and love plant-forward meals. Whether you’re always trying to figure out what to make next or just want to switch it, I highly recommend it. You get three full meatless meal plans every week (for recipes from Monday to Friday) a thorough grocery list and tips about your ingredients of the week in each one. The recipes not only taste amazing but also work with each other so that if you have leftover ingredients, you use them up in another dish. One of my fave parts about it is that she has options whether you’re vegan (like me), vegetarian or flexitarian. So it’s still meatless of course, but you can choose how many days work for you – and you still get ALL the recipes anyway! Total win, win. Go check it out!!

How to Make Fried Rice on a Sheet Pan

Add all your ingredients to the sheet pan, pour the sauce mix over, stir, and bake. That’s it. Making this Sheet Pan Fried Rice is ridiculously easy. I’m talking, watching a vlog while cooking and mastering it easy. Kids running laps around you and still being a kitchen pro easy. Make this for your next dinner.

    SO easy and delicious. I am a major beginner in the kitchen and so happy to find something to add to my list of things I can make! And I had all the ingredients without even having to think about it. Threw in some green beans and snap peas and my family was super happy! Thank you, Jessica!

    This was delicious and sooo easy. I didn’t have green onions, so I sliced up a shallot instead and that still worked perfectly.
    I used the teriyaki tofu from trader joes and that was the perfect match.
    Yum!

    Very versatile recipe! I just used the veggies and rice I had in my fridge and it came out great. Never thought of making fried rice in the oven before. I will definitely use this recipe again.

    As the only vegan in the house, I love finding recipes that please more than just me. This was a big hit with 3 out of 4 here (and #4 is super picky and refuses to try most new things). We omitted the pineapple because my daughter has a mild intolerance to it, and replaced it with mushrooms which was great! Got the sweet component by serving it with a little drizzle of Sweet Thai Chili sauce. I’m a new follower and this is the first recipe of yours that I’ve tried, but I will definitely be back. Thanks!!

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I never would have thought of making fried rice in the oven. It was delicious, easy, and clean up was a breeze. It is perfect for a weeknight meal and will definitely be added to our meal rotation.

    I’ve been meaning to post an update from my April comment! First of all, I and my carnivore husband LOVED this! Quick and tasty – what more could you ask for? In my April comment I asked about using “Just Egg” as an additional ingredient. Well I decided to scramble Just Egg separately, chopped it up and stirred it into the sheet pan rice before serving it. I had also added shredded carrots to the rice recipe as well. Two GREAT additions and nailed the flavor and colors that I associated with traditional fried rice. Thank you so much for always giving us recipes for such GOOD FOOD!

    This recipe is very flavorful especially with the pineapple. The roasted cashews add not only great texture but a rich flavor. Definitely going to make this again!

    Delicious!!!! I used frozen peas instead of edamame and used Jessica in the Kitchen’s recipe for Teriyaki Tofu for the tofu marinade! My husband said that it tasted better than the take out fried rice!
