Immune Boosting Faux Fried Rice
Recipe type: lunch/dinner
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice, chilled/cooled
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, bite-sized pieces, evenly sized
  • 1 cup asparagus, bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup kale leaves, chopped, stems removed
  • ½ cup snow peas, roughly chopped (about 4 pieces per snow pea)
  • 2 green onions, finely sliced, white & green parts
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, chopped or grated
  • ½ TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ tsp toasted sesame oil
  • ½ tsp tamari, low sodium
  • 1 egg
  1. In a sauté pan or wok, heat the olive oil, garlic, white parts of green onion & ginger on medium-high for 1 minute, stirring gently, careful not to brown or burn.
  2. Add broccoli, asparagus, snow peas and kale. Sauté, stirring and tossing regularly until kale begins to wilt,.* forabout 5 minutes, depending on your stove.
  3. Add chilled brown rice and green parts of green onion, sauté with vegetables for 2-3 minutes, stirring and tossing regularly.
  4. Clear a section of your pan and crack the egg directly into the open spot, scramble the egg directly in the pan and then mix into the rice and vegetable mix.
  5. Lower heat to medium, evenly distribute toasted sesame oil and tamari and stir over heat for 1-2 minutes.
  6. *You can blanch the broccoli & asparagus prior to this step if you like your veggies slightly more done.
