Just wanted to share a recipe for fried rice that I made for lunch today! I was craving Chinese food, but since I did not want the calories or fat of traditional Chinese takeout, I decided to go homemade.
Not only is this recipe super delicious, but it is also cheap! Just a few basic ingredients to whip this up.
Unfortunately, I did not have very many stir fry vegetables in the house, so all I could put in the rice was peas.
You could add carrots, sprouts, etc. as well as chicken, shrimp, pork. Whatever you want really!
This recipe is for a single serving, so adjust accordingly. If you’re using this for a side dish, one recipe could feed two people.
1/4 tsp. sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 tsp. ginger, grated
2 Tbs. skim milk
1/2 c. frozen peas
1/2 tsp. chili sauce
2 tsp. low sodium soy sauce
1 c. brown rice, cooked (1/2 c. dry)
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Heat the sesame oil in a medium high skillet. Meanwhile, mix the egg and milk together.
Brown the garlic and ginger. Add the egg and scramble. Lastly, add the rest of the ingredients and cook until heated.
Serve! That’s it. So easy.
Let me know what you guys think of this recipe!
