Fried Rice

This dish is a great way to use left over cooked rice from a previous meal. There’s minimal additions to this fried rice recipe apart from vegetables so it’s a great healthy alternative to a more traditional one. Between the beans, carrots, Chinese brocolli, and shallots there’s Vitamins A, C, K, and B6. Along with minerals, Calcium, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Magnesium, Potassium and Phosphorus. Not to mention the folic acid and fibre content of the vegetables, and I’m not even listing them all! Add in the protein from the eggs and the carbohydrates from the rice, this is one well rounded meal.

Notes

  • ¬†Feel free to add any vegetables you like into this dish, it’s so versatile!
  • I use precooked rice from a night previous as it dries out nicely and is easier to separate for the meal, without the moisture from fresh cooked rice.
  • This is a great main meal, but can also be used as a side dish, in smaller portions of course!
