Broccoli Fried Rice With Mushrooms

This broccoli fried rice is an easy dinner which is gluten free and also vegetarian. All you need is 30 minutes and you have a quick and easy dinner ready on the table.

I make this broccoli fried rice on days when I am not very well and need to make a quick dinner and save some for the tiffin for my kid, the next day. My daughter loves it and I usually serve it with a light soup. A great way to infuse broccoli in kids meals and it does a good job of hiding it.

Addition of mushrooms in the broccoli fried rice, gave this dish a new dimension in terms of taste. You can totally skip it but if you eat mushrooms, do add and see how mushrooms and broccoli are amazing together.

Broccoli is a super food and I make sure my family consumes broccoli twice a week or more than that in fact. My daughter doesn’t usually like florets and hence I end up looking for such recipes which help hide the vegetable. This recipe of broccoli fried rice sure does a good job of hiding broccoli.

  • 2 cups Steamed Rice
  • 1 cup Broccoli steamed and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Mushrooms washed and finely chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Onion finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Ginger finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Parsley or Coriander finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Green Chilies finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp Oyster or Teriyaki Sauce optional
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper Powder

  1. Steam broccoli florets for 3 to 5 minutes in salted boiling water and take it out.
  2. Finely chop the broccoli florets or you can also pulse it in a food processor till it resembles rice.
  3. Take oil in a kadhai or a heavy bottomed pan and keep all the ingredients close.
  4. First saute onion until transparent.
  5. Add garlic, ginger and parsley (or coriander) and saute until fragrant or a minute and a half.

  6. Now add broccoli, mushrooms (if using) and mix well for couple of minutes or until mushrooms are cooked.

  7. Now add soy sauce. Mix well.
  8. Add some oyster or teriyaki sauce (if using). I use store bought sauces which don’t have any MSG in them.
  9. Now add rice, salt and pepper. Mix well until thoroughly mixed.
  10. Serve hot with an Asian gravy or as is. I served Broccoli Fried Rice with Mushroom soup.

  1. Nandita this is really a clever idea actually. In food processor they will be in tiny pieces which kids can not take out. Loved this. Having food processor and I did not think of it. awesome dear

  2. Fried rice are really the best solution for quick and yummy weekday meals. With mushrooms and broccoli, this would make a very satisfying and nutrient packed dish.

  3. Fried rice looks so delicious and healthy. Mushroom and Broccoli combo sounds great. Brilliant idea to feed healthy food to kids.

  4. Whenever I bring broccoli, I fell short of ideas to use it as my kids are averse of broccoli and mushroom both. But in the fried rice I’m they will have it or rather enjoy it. Surely gonna try it.
