Brown Fried Rice is a simple side dish to accompany any Asian dinner!
I realize I need to step up my game when it comes to posting side dishes. I have an abundance of main course dishes and an even bigger abundance of desserts, but side dishes sometimes get overlooked by me.
I made this brown fried rice to go with some Asian turkey meatballs last week (that recipe is coming!). I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier lately and this rice dish was healthy without sacrificing taste.
This recipe is really great for an easy and tasty throw-together side dish. Make sure to have your ingredients all chopped and measured out and it’s a breeze from there. If you’re a meat-lover, feel free to throw in some cooked chicken or shrimp and make this into a meal! This can only make things better.
- 1 cup (uncooked) short grain brown rice
- cooking spray
- 1 large egg, 1 egg white, scrambled
- 4 large scallions, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 2 tsp soy sauce (or more to taste)
- 1 tsp fish sauce (optional)
- Cook brown rice according to package directions.
- Once rice is cooked, spray a heated nonstick wok or skillet with cooking spray and add the eggs and cook a minute or two until done. Set eggs aside.
- Spray more oil to the wok/skillet and add the scallions, chopped tomato and garlic. Saute about a minute, then add the rice. Add soy sauce and fish sauce, stir to mix all the ingredients. Keep stirring a few minutes, then add cooked scrambled egg. Adjust soy sauce if needed to taste and mix well for another 30 seconds.
