Easy and Healthy Fried Rice

I absolutely love fried rice. It’s wholesome, packed with veggies and very satisfying enough to eat on its own as a meal.

It’s a great way to empty your fridge and pairs very well with salmon, chicken, steaks or keep it vegetarian with sliced avocados or an egg!

This is how I make my healthy fried rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown rice, cooked
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups cabbage, sliced thinly
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 yellow or white onion, sliced
  • ½ cup corn
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, chopped finely
  • ½ cup sliced scallions
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. Cook your brown rice according to package and set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil and sauté your vegetables, start with your onions, carrots and cabbage and cook until onion is translucent and vegetables are tender about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add garlic, ginger, corn and cook for 2 more minutes.
  4. Spice with black pepper, garlic powder.
  5. Add your cooked rice and soy sauce, mix until well combined for 1 minute.  
  6. Garnish with scallions.
  7. Optional- in a pan, crack an egg and cook sunny side up style. Season with salt and pepper. Place it on top of your rice bowl.
