quazi-healthy-fried rice recipe
[adapted from daily garnish]
Ingredients:1 cup brown rice [1 cup of uncooked]
1/2 white onion
1 shallot [only because I just had it laying around]
1 cup shelled edamame [I used frozen]
4 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons sesame oil
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon chopped garlic/1 garlic clove
step 1: cook 1 cup of brown rice per instructions on rice box/use rice cooker
step 1: prep cutting veggies [dice onion, shallots carrots] while rice cooks
step 2: add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil to med-high heat skillet/wok - add rice and onions [and if you're like me and have one laying around cut up shallot], cook for around 5 minutes until rice is "fried" and onions are cooked
step 3: add edamame and carrots [and whatever other veggies suit your fancy] and cook
step 4: mix soy sauce and rest of sesame oil together and add to rice/veggie mixture
step 5: push rice/veggies to outside of skillet and fry and egg in the middle, quickly break yolk and scramble egg into rice/veggies [I accidentally did this before I added the soy sauce/sesame oil and it turned out fine]
step 6: add garlic and butter
step 7: add additional soy/garlic to taste
