Vegetable Fried Rice

Vegetable Fried Rice
  • 2 cups day old short grain brown rice
  • 1/2 cup broccoli
  • 1/4 cup sting beans
  • 1/4 cup diced carrot
  • 1/4 cup garden peas
  • 1/4 cup fresh corn
  • 2 garlic cloves smashed
  • 1 inch fresh ginger minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallion
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a hot frying pan add sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and scallion. Saute for 3 minutes or until garlic begins to brown. Add broccoli, carrot, string beans, corn, and peas, saute for 3 minutes. Add brown rice, saute for 5 minutes. Seson with salt and pepper. You can add 1 tbs of tamari for more traditional flavor. Try scrambling an egg for a little more pizzazz. Make sure you use day old rice. It will be dry, that will make it possible for frying.

That looks healthy and tasty. I recently tried some short grained brown rice and I really liked the chewy texture. I will have to try using it in a fried rice.
