Mushroom Coconut Fried Rice

I have a lovely warm bowl of juicy mushroom fried rice with creamy coconut for you – its just the kind of dish I want when I need something speedy, comforting and nourishing.
I’ve used leftover rice here and its perfect to have up your sleeve for using up leftovers – but it’s absolutely worth cooking up a pot of rice especially to make this.
This is such a simple recipe but I think that the combination to garlic, ginger, hoisin, tamari, miso and coconut works like a dream. Add in some earthy mushrooms, rice and a drizzle of toasted sesame oil and it tastes fantastic.

I also like to add crushed salted peanuts of extra crunch. I hope you enjoy xx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.

  1. In a large frying pan, fry the onion with the oil on a medium heat until soft and starting to caramelise. Now add in the garlic & ginger and fry for a further minute.

  3. Next add in the rice, hoisin, mirin, tamari, miso and coconut milk, stir to combine and cook for 5 minutes.

    I love this recipe! Although I cook it more risotto style, by adding mushrooms, and after they are done, rice and water with all other ingredients and let it steam! It’s a wonder! Thank you very much!

      I use that idea Ksenia! Will try that way as well.

    This looks yummy. What do you serve it with? My husband is happy to eat vegan with me but this kind of rice dish wouldn’t sustain him for long, he gets hungry soon after. Have you tried adding a higher protein source to this dish, other than the crushed peanut garnish? I wondered what would work well with this dish, without spoiling it 😊

      Hi Teresa
      Absolutely, its pretty filling but its super delicious served with any of my dals or chickpea curry for more protein.
      Lots of love, Niki xx
