Co-Meal: Fried Rice and Egg Rolls

So, back in January I started sharing with you guys some of the co-meals we make together, where there are just a few components that are different, so we can pretty much have the same dinner.  This has worked out great for us, and we had another one the other night.  By the time we get home from work, I'm beat, so dinners have been super simple lately.  Josh has been cooking a lot more, but I still love being in the kitchen.  So, I try.

So, the only difference in our meal was the protein.  We get vegan and regular chicken strips, so they were super easy to warm up on the side of our meal.

Then, I cooked up some frozen veggies, edemame, a few cups of rice, and an egg in tamari and rice wine vinegar.  You could absolutely leave out the egg to make vegan.

On the side, we had veggie egg rolls.  You could sub vegan spring rolls to make a vegan option.  These have a small amount of egg in the wrapper.

I used to be super sensitive to hot sauce and spicy things during the first trimester, but it's much better, so I brought it with the hot sauce.  Yum!  This was super easy to throw together, so it would be great to give you meat, vegetarian, and vegan dinner options.


  1. I've been loving your frozen burritos in bulk idea! They've been so helpful for quick, easy meals.

    1. I have another burrito recipe coming soon! So glad you like them. I think I'm due for another round of batch cooking soon.

  2. I'm so glad you're feeling better! And what a relief to be able to handle hot sauce!! I want to try that YellowBird sauce so bad!
    Looks like a delicious meal!

    1. Much better! And yes, my life was incomplete without hot sauce. That YellowBird is great, and very spicy. I get it at Whole Foods.


I'd love to hear from you!
