Who says Fried Rice can’t be healthy? Here’s an awesome recipe with a vegan twist, to keep your body warm and energized this fall. OK… Let’s eat!
Prep Time: 10 mins.
Cook Time: 20 mins.
-1 tbsp. olive oil
-1 small onion
-2 cloves garlic
-1 carrot, diced
-1/2 bunch scallion
-1 tbsp. grated ginger
-4 c. cooked long grain brown rice
-2 tbsp. tamari soy sauce
-1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
Saute onion in olive oil for 5 min., then add minced garlic and ginger. Add carrot and saute for 4 min., then add scallion and ginger. Saute for about 4 more minutes so flavors can melt into each other. Add rice and sprinkle with water. Water gives extra steam to the dish. Add tamari soy sauce and toasted sesame oil. Lower heat and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
TIP: If you are a NON-Vegan, beat an egg together with the tamari and sesame oil. Pour this mixture into the pan and move it around quickly with a fork to spread the egg as it cooks. This is also a great recipe for leftover rice.
Food For Thought:
What are your favorite fall foods? What flavors do you crave? Whatever your favorite food may be, I can assure you there is a healthier way to make it. Seek and you will find natural, clean and organic alternatives. Your body will thank you for years to come!
