Family Recipes: Chinese Fried Rice

Tired of white rice as a side dish? Spice it up! Try Nourish Mom’s recipe for Chinese fried rice. It’s a healthy way to make a quick meal out of leftover white rice (brown rice works, too!) you may have in the refrigerator.

Ingredients:

  • 2-4 cups cooked rice
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 3-4 scallions
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • ½ cup frozen corn
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Soy sauce

NOTE: Frozen chopped veggies can be used to replace fresh if you don’t have a lot of prep time.

Directions:

  • Chop the vegetables.
  • Heat a large saucepan or wok on medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon canola oil.
  • Crack the eggs and scramble them in the pan. Transfer to a bowl.
  • Add remaining oil, broccoli, and carrots to the pan. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the scallions, peas, corn, and garlic. Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until veggies are heated through.
  • Add the cooked rice and cooked eggs. Stir in soy sauce to taste. Cook 1-2 minutes until mixture is heated to desired temperature.

Enjoy!
