Vegetable Fried Rice

I love Rice. I REALLY love Fried Rice!!!! I grew up eating Fried Rice. I have strived to try to make a Fried Rice like the one I have had so many times at Ron of Japan in Chicago.

I have never come close to their recipe. Every time we are in Chicago, we eat at Ron of Japan. Everyone in my family watched closely at how the cook their Fried Rice but still it is not the same.

This is close but not the same. Delicious but not the same... Most importantly MINE is HEALTHIER!!!!

The Ingredients:
7 spears of asparagus, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
1/4 - 1/2 cup of frozen peas
1/2 cup broccoli (fresh or frozen), cut into pieces
1/2 onion, chopped
2 scramble eggs
Soy sauce
Sesame Seeds
Garlic Salt
Salt and Pepper

The Directions:

Combine your rice and all the water called for in the recipe with 1-2 Tbsp of acid medium and let soak for 7 hours. I combine these ingredients in the rice cooker. When ready, simply turn it on and cook as usual. My recipe is to soak 1 cup brown rice to 2 1/4 cup water, with 2 Tbsp of kefir. Then plug in the rice cooker and begin to cook. If you are using stovetop following the directions. Should take about 45 minutes on a low simmer.
(- Brown rice is not have as high of phytate content and thus need only be soaked for 7 hours (this is a great last minute grains if you forget to soak, won’t be a big problem – also recommend purchasing brown rice pasta for this reason as well)

Once the rice is done, unplug the rice cooker or take off the heat, begin to saute the vegetables in Coconut Oil. Start off with the carrots and broccoli. If you are using frozen vegetables, add those. After a couple of minutes and the rest of the vegetables. Mix in the seasonings.

If you haven't done so, in a separate pan, scramble the 2 eggs.

Add the cooled rice and scrambled egg to the vegetables. Cook for a minute or two.

This is great for leftovers! :)

    This means that you literally burn fat by consuming Coconut Fats (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
