How to make fried brown rice

Since the beginning of the year I’ve been attempting to replace things like white bread with whole grain bread, white rice with brown rice, chocolate with apples.

Ok, so that last one wasn’t true, but I have been trying to incorporate more brown rice with our meals. My family, is not a huge fan of brown rice. I used to make two cups of white rice for one meal and my family would eat the whole pot. Now I make 1 cup of brown rice and there are leftovers.

I decided to turn my leftover brown rice into something new and exciting. So I whipped up this Quick and Easy Brown Fried Rice!

Quick and Easy Brown Fried Rice

Surprise, surprise, my family LOVED it. In fact, they didn’t even know that they were eating the dreaded brown rice. The nutty flavor and firmer texture of the brown rice absorbed all the bold Asian flavors of this one pot meal, and they loved every last bite.

This would make a great side dish for your Asian meal or you can add a little chicken, shrimp, pork, beef or even tofu to make it a complete meal!

I used some frozen peas and carrots to make it even easier to throw together.

While we’re on the topic of my family not fully supporting my healthy eating quest…

I’m fully convinced my children are on their own personal quest to not let me get one peaceful nights sleep. Every time I’m so extremely exhausted from staying up late to finish the last episode of Downton Abby, or with bloodshot eyes because I just HAD to watch the last skit on SNL, without fail – as soon as my head hits the pillow one of my four children decides it’s the perfect time to wake up and start crying.

Then, once I finally get the crying child back to sleep, I think I’m in the clear and go back to sleep.

Only to be woken up 1.37 hours later by another crying child.
