Vegetable Fried Brown Rice (Side Dish)

Recipe and Photos from

Ever have leftover vegetables hanging around the fridge – like half a pepper, a bit of onion, broccoli that might go bad? You can combine all of them into a great vegetable fried rice side dish! White or brown rice both work great in this recipe but, we recommend brown because it is healthier.

You’ll Need: • • • •

2 tablespoons peanut oil 3 garlic cloves (minced) ½ cup onion (finely chopped) Red pepper flakes (1/8 – ¼ teaspoon, optional) • 1 cup broccoli florets (chopped) • ½ red bell pepper (diced)

• • • •

1/3 cup carrots (chopped) 1/3 cup frozen peas 2 cups cooked brown rice 1 ½ tablespoon low sodium soy sauce • 1 egg

Cooking Instructions In a large skillet, warm the oil over medium-low heat. Add in the garlic, onion, and desired amount of red pepper flakes, cook for 3-5 minutes. Add the diced red pepper, carrots, and broccoli with a pinch of salt/ pepper to the skillet. Raise heat to medium and cook for 3-5 minutes. Toss in the cooked rice. Stir to combine. Drizzle in the low sodium soy sauce. Stir. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Break the egg and add to the skillet. Add in the frozen peas. Stir to combine. Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the egg is cooked and peas are heated through. Source(s): side-dish-dinner/vegetable-fried-brown-rice/
