Fav fried rice

Fried rice is one of my favorite treats, but as we all know it is terrible for you!  We make a healthy fried rice at home to satiate the craving.

Brown rice
Canola Oil (about 2 tablespoons)
1-2 inches of fresh ginger (grated)
3-4 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 small onion (diced)
2 eggs (scrambled)
Low sodium soy sauce
Your choice of veggies  (broccoli, carrots, baby corn, peas etc.  Frozen Asian veg mixes work great)
Can add tofu (if you’d like) or pork, chicken, shrimp for the meat-eater in your life

-Start by cooking rice (1/2 cup per person) Brown Basmati Rice preferred
-Preheat skillet or Wok on med-high heat
-Add 2-3 tbls of canola oil to pan
-Oil is heated high enough when oil looks cloudy in pan
-Add eggs and stir like scrambled eggs
-After eggs are cooked push to side of wok and add ginger, garlic and onion to the pan, salt and pepper
-When ginger, onion and garlic are all cooked stir in the choice veggies

When rice if cooked add to the pan

Stir all together and turn up heat.  Add a generous pour of low sodium soy sauce to the mixture to desired color and taste.

-Voilà! Add hot sauce and chopped scallions if you’d like!

Check out that steam!
