Any time I have a craving for Chinese food I make this easy, healthier version of fried rice. This is also a fun way to “dress up” rice if you eat it often and you’re sick of the same old thing. It’s easy to make and easy to clean up.
In a pot, you’ll need:
1.5 cups brown rice
3 cups of chicken broth/stock (or veggie stock if vegetarian or vegan)
Cook until rice is tender
In a cast iron, you’ll need:
Olive oil- coat bottom of the pan
2.5 Cups Mixed frozen veggies- I use mixed carrots, corn, green beans, and peas (I buy in a 5lb bag)
1/2 cup Green onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
Zested orange- about 1 tbsp
Zested ginger- about 1 tbsp
I use this zester– and it’s amazing- easy to use and easy to clean.
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp salt
Combine these and let pan sear over medium heat
Once rice is tender, combine in cast iron or pan you are already utilizing with the veggies and seasonings. Add 1/8 cup of liquid aminos and 2 tbsp of Soy Sauce.
LIQUID AMINOS: low sodium product, made with coconut, low sugar and high protein. Easy to find at target or other retailers in the same section as soy sauce.
