Cooking Healthy Fried Rice (Easy Rice Recipe)

I've shared with you one of my favorite fried rice recipes a few posts back. This time, I'll share with you a simpler one. This fried rice dish is good if you're really pressed for time.

Fried Rice Recipe

Read on.

We use brown, red and white rice at home. Hence, the colorful mix you see above. If you're triglyceride and cholesterol levels are high, I suggest you also make the switch. (Just a friendly reminder from yours truly.) Anyway, left-over rice can be used and cooked into a different dish so never, never throw them away! For instance, you can make your own fried rice dish as simple as this recipe I'm going to share with you here.

Ingredients in cooking healthy fried rice:
- left-over rice, seasoned with a bit of salt

Fried Rice Recipe

- broccoli, cut into tiny bits

Other vegetables will do, too. You can use carrots, spinach, yardlong or string beans. Whatever veggies you have in your fridge will do.

- garlic, crushed and chopped
- onions, chopped
- 1 whole egg

Fried Rice Recipe

- cooking oil
- fish sauce

Let's start cooking healthy fried rice.
1. Heat up the pan.
2. Put cooking oil on the pan when it's heated up.
3. Saute the garlic. Stir well.
4. When the garlic turns golden, put in the onions.
5. When the onions soften, season the dish with a bit of fish sauce. Stir well and lower the heat.
6. Toss in the vegetables. Stir well.
7. When the vegetables cook, put in the rice. Stir well.
8. Add in the eggs. Scramble it in the dish. Stir well.
9. Season with a bit of fish sauce.
10. Serve while hot.

This healthy fried rice is best for breakfast. Once again, you don't need to put artificial seasonings in this dish. Fish sauce usually is enough.

  1. Correct, leftover rice are still useful. Actually I've never have the chance to fry rice correctly. This steps is very easy. Thanks for this sis.

  2. Pwede na ngang walang ulam yan e kasi malasa na!

  3. The brown rice is a lot healthier than regular rice. Fried rice is tastier and can go with any viands.

  4. WE do the same mommy. from the combination of rice down to do with the left over rice. hehehe :) that's good that you share it at least, people would know now what to do especially for left over rice. :)

  5. Hmm I'm hesitant to try this - by virtue of being fried, doesn't that already take away anything healthy about it? :) Some food for thought, pun intended.

  6. weeehhh sarap!!! Tuyo nlng with viniegar at sili ang kulang!!!

  7. My husband cooks sinangag just like this whenever we have leftover rice. Easy, healthy and practical. :)

  8. I always cook fried rice but didn't consider if it is healthy. Nice tips. Thanks. :D

  9. mixing three kinds of rice... that's interesting. but don't they have different cooking time? i'm concerned the brown rice might not come out cooked

  10. That's real healthy indeed but I think we still need to skip the fish sauce for a healthier one. It works for me because I got bland taste buds.

  11. This will be an added recipe for me since I love sinangag for breakfast. BTW can I take away the fish sauce since allergic ako roon.

  12. Simply love this. Nice recipe! Thanks! (h)

  13. I use eggs, hotdogs, carrots in my fried rice! Thanks for giving me a tip on broccoli!

  14. I always eat heavy meal on breakfast and fried rice will definitely make my day. These is the healthy way of making it.

  15. this is healthy indeed! I am thinking of switching to brown rice too since my triglycerides is high

  16. I've heard of a very healthy way of making rice dishes: instead of carb-filled rice, you shred cauliflower into rice sized pieces. I haven't tried it, though.

  17. This is a colourful fried rice recipe. Especially kids will love it. Mothers can try this recipe to feed their fussy eaters.
