Healthified Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of those amazingly delicious indulgences I never thought of making at home. Until I did. And put it on instagram. And got lots of likes. So I decided I’d share my recipe for fried rice that is delicious AND nutritious! Forget the take-out, this recipe is a win-win and a whole meal in itself! Now if I could only crack the egg like the true hibachi masters…

Makes two large servings: (recipe is flexible, use what you have/like)

  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 egg and 1 egg white
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • Green peas
  • Mushrooms
  • Bean Sprouts
  • Broccoli or broccoli slaw
  • Water chestnuts
  • Edamame (cooked and de-shelled)
  • Lean protein (chicken, beef, tofu, tempeh, etc. Your choice)
  • 1 small piece of ginger root or dash of ginger spice
  • 1.5 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons safflower oil (or oil of choice)

Cook lean protein in 1 teaspoon safflower oil and a teaspoon of soy sauce. In separate pan, sauté scallions, garlic, and ginger in safflower oil until light brown. In one more pan, sauté all vegetables and add scallion mix at end. Add rice, coconut oil, protein, edamame, and remaining soy sauce and mix all together, cooking on medium heat. Lightly beat egg and egg whites and pour over rice. Continue to mix until egg is cooked and spread evenly throughout. Remove from heat once rice is desired consistency/crispness (just takes a minute or two)
