Easy Veggie Fried Rice

Fried rice doesn't have to be unhealthy for you.  This version is lighter, fresher, and tastier than the original.  Brown rice adds fiber, grated and diced veggies add in vitamins, and the peas add in protein.  The flavor of this rice is enhanced by sesame oil and a touch of soy sauce, but most of the flavor comes from the veggies themselves.

My two year old was enthralled by the chopsticks, and insisted eating with them.  Ultimately, we ended up feeding her with the chop sticks, but she did like this recipe quite a bit.

This recipe cooks up super quick, so make sure that you have prepped all of your vegetables before you begin.   If you make the rice ahead of time, or are making this dish with leftover rice this would make a very quick and easy weeknight meal.  If this is intended as a main course, just double the peas or stir in some tofu.

Serves: 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 TBSP canola oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 cup peas (I just used frozen)
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice1 tsp sesame oil1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

Directions:

  1. Heat the oil is a saute pan over high heat.  Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently about two minutes.
  2. Stir in the garlic, carrots, celery, and peas and cook for another 3 minutes.
  3. Add the remainder of your ingredients and cook for about 2 minutes (or until the rice is warmed through if you are using leftover rice).
