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.
