Here’s an easy fried rice recipe that is very much like our favorite Midwestern Oriental restaurant’s – obviously for Midwestern tastes. It is, however, simple to make and tastes good too. Even picky eaters and young children will enjoy this. The brown rice adds a nutty flavor, but regular rice would be good too.
Vegetarian Fried Rice
3 Cups Cooked Brown Rice
1/2 Cup Fresh Mushrooms -- sliced
1/2 Cup Carrot -- shredded
1/4 Cup Green Onion -- sliced
1/4 Cup Green Pepper -- chopped
1/4 Teaspoon Fresh Ginger
1 Teaspoon Garlic -- minced
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 Large Eggs -- beaten
1/8 Teaspoon Pepper
3/4 Cup Frozen Peas -- thawed
While rice is cooking, brown mushrooms, carrot, onions, bell pepper, ginger and garlic in olive oil (or use cooking spray); cook and stir one minute.
Reduce heat to low. Stir in cooked rice and soy sauce; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Push rice mixture to side of the skillet; add eggs and pepper to other side.
Cook over low heat for 3-4 minutes; stirring constantly until eggs are cooked.
Add peas to the rice and egg mixture; stir gently to combine. Cook until thoroughly heated.
