Red Curry Fried Rice - Thai style fried rice with red curry paste and plenty of vegetables

Hello, fried rice, my old friend.

Fried rice is so entrenched in my household, it is practically a state of being.

If you’re anything like me and you love fried rice, Thai food, are NOT above eating fried rice as a meal, and…carbs…then this is the recipe has your first, middle, and last name written all over it.

This new rendition involves red curry paste, a variety of vegetables, a splash of fish sauce (just trust me), and a touch of pure maple syrup to offset the salty, umami, spicy flavors.

It is no more difficult to prepare than the last fried rice you made.

…And if you’ve never made fried rice, it’s easy mmmmkay!

Let’s do this.

How to Make Red Curry Fried Rice:

Steam the white rice and set aside until ready to use.

In a small bowl, stir together the red curry paste, liquid aminos, pure maple syrup, and fish sauce and set aside.

While the rice is cooking, sauté the vegetables. To do so, add the coconut oil and chopped onion to a large skillet or wok and heat over medium-high. Sauté until onion turns translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic, carrot, bell pepper, and asparagus and stir well. Cover and cook until asparagus is bright green, softened, but still al dente, about 2 to 4 minutes.

In a separate skillet, scramble the eggs and set aside until ready to use.

Add the cooked white rice and sauce to the skillet with the vegetables and stir well to combine. Stir in the scrambled egg and green onion. Serve alongside your entree and enjoy!

  • Add chicken, shrimp, beef or pork to make it a meat-infused fried rice!
  • For creamy coconut rice flavor, add ½ cup full-fat canned coconut milk to the sauce.
  • Omit the fish sauce if you aren’t into it.
