Skinny 'fried' Rice

Happy Friday, loves! Any fun weekend plans? Nothing too big happening at our house...maybe that will change as the weekend progresses...probably not. ;) I'm here today with another 'skinny' recipe, that is oh-so-good, and surprisingly healthy! 

I love fried rice - I could eat it for every meal (ok, maybe not, but it is one of my favorites). The down side? It's loaded with calories and fat...not to mention I'm always hungry an hour later. Yesterday, I whipped up a quick, much healthy version at home, and was thrilled with the taste. 

brown rice (I used organic, frozen from Whole Foods)
2 eggs (or egg whites, if you prefer)
frozen peas
frozen edamame 
soy sauce
sesame oil
salt and peper to taste
dash of coriander
dash of cayenne pepper
*whatever else you enjoy in your fried rice

- sauté frozen peas, carrots and edamame in 1 tbs sesame oil, and salt and pepper until soft
- meanwhile, cook frozen rice in microwave (or however you will be preparing rice)
- add whisked eggs to edamame, peas, and carrots (add other seasonings at this time) 
- after eggs begin to brown, add rice and stir in 1 tbs of soy sauce
- mix well, and enjoy! 


Thank you for visiting! xoxo
