asian pear FRIED RICE.


We’ve been having fun experimenting with our harvest of Asian Pears…. a few days ago I had some leftover rice I wanted to use it up. So I made a fried rice with baked tofu, edamame, carrots, broccoli and ASIAN PEARS instead of water chestnuts….the slight hint of sweetness from the pears was fabulous! 

asian pear FRIED RICE (4 ppl)


  • 4 cups cooked rice 
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (or oil of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated or minced
  •  1/2 cup carrots, diced
  • 3/4 cup edamame, washed
  • 2 cups broccoli, cut into florets
  • 3/4 cup asian pear, diced
  • 3 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sri Racha hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon hing (or 1 clove garlic, minced)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

DIRECTIONS for cooking

  1. Heat oil in preheated wok or skillet on medium-high heat. Add soy sauce, Sri Racha hot sauce, hing (or garlic), ginger and stir until fragrant.
  2. Add broccoli, carrots and edamame and salt. Stir and cover for 5 minutes.
  3. Once veggies are at a tenderness you like, add rice and stir until heated through (about 3 minutes since the rice is already cooked, it just needs to be heated through)
  4. Last, stir in diced pears, stir and serve!


  • It’s all vegan!


  • Totally gluten-free!


  • Pitta dosha’s can eliminate the Sri Racha Hot Sauce.
