Fried rice is the quinessential take-out food. Unfortunately, this popular take-out meal is also laden with unnecessary fat and calories.
With this homemade, healthy egg fried rice you can enjoy the flavours of take-out from your favourite Chinese restaurant and feel good about serving it to your family at the same time.
This healthy egg fried rice combines many of the flavours of traditional fried rice-sesame, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger, but is without a doubt lighter and healthier than restaurant-style fried rice. The addition of mixed vegetables lends freshness (and exudes healthiness) while staying true to the flavour profile of fried rice.
The pungent garlic and ginger, combined with the salty soy sauce and nutty sesame oil combine perfectly with the creamy eggs and fresh veggies…and the starchy rice soaks up all those delicious flavours.
For a quicker meal prep, I usually prepare the rice the evening before (simply boil until al dente) then store in the fridge overnight. While this ‘extra’ step might sound tedious, it will in fact same you time the evening you prepare this meal since the remaining ingredients only take about 10 minutes to prepare.
