The answer is that you can most certainly cook and sauté with water or vegetable broth what you might otherwise have only believed could have been cooked using oil.

I love using this recipe as an example to show individuals and families that are looking into and making the transition to a whole food plant-based diet that oil-free cooking is both easy to do and delicious.


Oil-Free Stir-Fried Rice is one of our favorite WFPB meals to make in hurry. We always try to have cooked rice on hand just for this recipe!

Add your vegetables into a medium-sized stockpot and turn the burner onto a medium heat. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 to 10 minutes depending on if you are using fresh or frozen vegetables.

Uncover, and stir in the rice and soy sauce. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, uncovered.


This is a great recipe to use up any day-old rice that may have dried out a bit before you were able to properly refrigerate it.
