Garlic Ginger Fried Rice

Garlic Ginger Fried Rice

This is the quickest weeknight meal.  I use Trader Joe's frozen Organic Brown Rice, and the dish literally comes together in minutes.  Serve with a side of steamed broccoli or sautéed kale (pictured), and you're set!

Garlic Ginger Fried Rice

Serves 2

1 Tbs. avocado oil
2 scallions, finely chopped, white and light green only
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbs. fresh ginger, grated
1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 cups brown rice
1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
6-8 sprays Bragg's Liquid Aminos (to taste)

2 eggs, fried
Kimchi
Gomasio (sesame seeds + sea salt)

Heat a cast iron skillet to medium.  Add oil, scallions, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes. Sauté 1-2 minutes until fragrant and just starting to brown. Stir in brown rice, sesame oil, and Bragg's. Cook another 2-3 minutes until heated through.

To serve: Finish with gomasio and top with a fried egg and kimchi. 

Notes:

To incorporate a green such as kale or spinach, add to the pan after you've sautéed the scallions, ginger, and garlic. Cook until wilted (with a splash of water if needed), and then add the brown rice, sesame oil, and Bragg's. I use generally use one bunch of finely chopped kale. 

If you can't find Bragg's Liquid Aminos, substitute low sodium soy sauce or tamari. 

Gomasio is a sesame seed + sea salt blend, and I put it on everything. I like Eden Organics.
