Recipe: Healthy “Fried” Rice

I love Chinese food, but I also know that it can be loaded with sugar, salt and fat. All things that make food taste amazing. Recently, I went through my kitchen and rediscovered an electric wok that my grandmother had given to me. During prep, there are only so many ways to eat chicken breast and brown rice, again, searching online and turning to Pinterest I had a decent understanding of what was in fried rice. Here’s my take on it.

What You’ll Need:

1 cup of Steamfresh Asian Medley veggies

1/4 cup of onion

1/4 cup green pepper

1 egg

3/4 cup brown rice cooked (1/4 cup uncooked rice puffs to about 3/4 cup)

Olive Oil

 

Directions:

1. Cook brown rice and Steamfresh veggies as their directions tell you.

2. Chop up onion and green pepper, cook veggies in wok while rice cooks until tender.

3. Once the rice is fully cooked, add it and the Steamfresh veggies to your wok. Mix rice with veggies.

4. Crack 1 egg into the wok and mix until full cooked. Your egg doesn’t need to be scrambled because the constant mixing will scramble it.

This recipe makes enough for 1. I also served my rice with 6 ounces of chicken breast. The macros are:

I didn’t marinade the chicken, just put a little bit of seasoning on it. If you decide to put sauce on it, it will change that nutritional value, but this is a pretty well rounded meal already. I’ve made this recipe twice already and it’s been a hit with the boy both times :]

What are your favorite foods that aren’t always healthy, but you can’t live without?
