I’m sitting here, and enjoying my lovely homemade fried rice. This is a recipe I used to be scared of. It seemed so complicated when I would watch the chef’s with their woks. Turns out, it’s as simple as 5 ingredients, and a few minutes time. Seems fairly simple; are you thinking this woman is crazy and is one French Fry short of a Happy Meal …. nope, completely serious, it’s that simple!
Ok, so since I’ve decided this has to be up, I’m posting it now before I forget to share this with all of you ;o)
Recipe per Serving:
1/2 C Leftover Brown Rice
1 tsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 Garlic Clove, minced
1 tsp Ginger powder, or 1 tsp. fresh Ginger mashed
3 TBSP Sunflower Oil (or another healthy oil without flavor such as Grapeseed)
Use 1 Egg for 4-5 servings
Whatever Veggies you want
1. Heat a skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add oil, garlic and ginger.
2. Saute garlic and ginger for 2 minutes then add veggies of your choice (1/2 C per serving).
3. Once veggies are cooked, add rice. Cook till heated.
4. Add egg, and stir fry until egg is cooked through.
5. The last ingredient you want to mix in is the soy sauce. Let cook for 2 minutes, or until it is hot.
If you add meat to this, be sure to stir fry the meat with the garlic and ginger before you add the veggies. I just make this as a leftovers style dish. So I’ll use leftover meat, fish, chicken, or whatever is around, leftover rice, and whatever veggies are in the house. Tonight’s fried rice included green beans. I don’t have any other veggies in the house, so they flew solo this time.
