How To Make Ginger Kale Fried Rice

The earthy and slightly flavor of kale produces a nice minty and savory taste when combined with ginger in this kale fried rice recipe. Try it for lunch!

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • 3tbspbutter,divided
  • 4green onions,thinly sliced
  • 3clovesgarlic,minced
  • 2tbspfresh ginger,minced or grated
  • 4cupsrice
  • ½cuppeas,frozen
  • 1small bunch kale
  • ¼cuplow-sodium soy sauce,or more/less to taste
  • 2tspsauce,optional
  • ½tspsesame oil
  • 3eggs,whisked
  • freshly-cracked black pepper


  1. Sauté the green onion, garlic, and ginger. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. 

  2. Add the white and light-green parts of the green onions and sauté for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the garlic and ginger and sauté for 1 minute, stirring often.

  3. Sauté the rice. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and increase heat to high heat.  Once the butter has melted, add in the rice and spread it out in an even layer. 

  4. Let the rice cook undisturbed for about 2 minutes or until crisp on the bottom.  Give it a good stir and repeat, letting it cook for about 1 to 2 minutes or until it is crispy.

  5. Add in the peas. Follow up with half of the reserved green parts of the green onions, and kale, quickly tossing the kale with the rice one handful at a time until it is incorporated and begins to wilt.

  6. Drizzle the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil evenly over the rice and toss to combine.

  7. Scramble the eggs. Push the rice to one side of the pan and cook the eggs in the other, stirring them frequently until scrambled and cooked through.

  8. Give the rice a taste and season with black pepper and/or extra soy sauce as needed, to taste.

  9. Remove from heat and serve immediately, garnished with remaining green onions.
