Asian Fried Rice with Peas and Onions

This is almost like a fried rice to me.  Except it is easier to prepare.  It has virtually all the flavors.  It just doesn't have the egg.  You could always add the egg if you want, but this would be a great alternative for people with an egg allergy or just looking to cut calories and fats.

I decided to use peas and onions because that is what I had on hand, but you could use mixed veggies or whatever you prefer.   I just wouldn't exceed 2 cups of veggies unless you increase the amount of rice and then of course you would have to increase the sauce too ;)  But this gives you a good base to build off from.



Asian Fried Rice with Peas and Onions
2 Cups Cooked Brown Rice
2 tsp Sesame Oil
1 tsp Minced Garlic, or 2 cloves
1 tsp Ground Ginger
1/4 Cup Diced Onion
2 Cups Frozen Peas
1/2 Cup Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce
Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes

  • Heat the oil over medium heat in a large saute pan
  • Add garlic, onion, ginger, and red pepper flakes and cook for about 2- minutes or until the mixture becomes fragrant 
  • Add the frozen veggies and cook for about 2 minutes just to heat through
  • Stir in the rice and soy sauce and cook until everything is combined and heated through
This makes about 6 servings and the nutritional value is for 1 serving.
