Vegetable Fried Brown Rice

Fried rice is quick and easy to make at home.  It is a great way to clean out the refrigerator using whatever vegetables you have on hand and is a satisfying meatless entree.  In this recipe I use carrots, shiitake mushrooms and peas but you can add broccoli, peppers, beans, corn, anything you like.  I always have Trader Joe's frozen brown rice on hand so I just warm it up and use that for the rice.  This recipe will serve 3 as an entree or 6 as a side dish.

Chop 6 green onions using white and light green parts.

Dice 3 peeled carrots.

Dice 6 shiitake mushroom caps.

Lightly oil a saute pan and scramble 3 eggs.
Set aside.

Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a wok or large saute pan over medium high heat.
Add 4 cups of cooked brown rice, 
mushrooms and 1 cup of peas.
Saute for 5 minutes stirring occasionally.

Add 4 Tbsp soy sauce and saute for another 5 minutes.

Stir in the scrambles eggs breaking them up as you combine.

Stir in the green onions and remove from heat.

  3. We made this for dinner the other night and LOVED it! So yummy and healthy. I thought it was just as good, if not better, than our favorite take out place.
