- ½ cup diced white onion
- 1 cup diced carrot
- 1 cup diced broccoli stems
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 4 cloves garlic
- ½ inch piece of ginger
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 cup chopped snap peas
- 1 cup packed chopped kale
- 3 cups cooked brown rice
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- ½ tablespoon rice vinegar
- Optional ½ tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 eggs + ¼ cup egg whites
- Garnish with green onion
- Dice your onion, carrot, and broccoli stems. Heat a large pan with oil and sautee them for 5 minutes on medium heat until softened and the onions are almost translucent.
- Mince the garlic and ginger into the pan and cook for another minute while you chop the kale and snap peas.
- Add the frozen peas, snap peas, and kale to the pan with the cooked brown rice. Stir for a a couple minutes until the kale wilts and turn the heat down to low.
- Add soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil to the pan. Let it cook on low for a few minutes together, stirring every 30 seconds or so to avoid anything sticking to the pan.
- In a separate pan, quickly scramble the eggs and egg whites until almost set. Add them to the fried rice.
- Once the egg is combined into the fried rice, taste and add another dash of soy sauce if it is not salty enough for your taste. Serve the fried rice hot with a garnish of chopped green onion.
