This easy brown fried rice makes a tasty and healthy dinner. I can get my family to eat brown rice when I use it in recipes like this. Brown rice is generally more nutritious than white rice. It’s a whole grain that is higher in fiber, magnesium, antioxidants, and other nutrients. It isn’t artificially enriched with nutrients like white rice is.
It dies take longer to cook that white rice. In my rice cooker, it takes about an hour to cook. I cooked my brown rice the night before I want to make this. I can let it cook in my rice cooker as we go about our evening. Then the next night, this easy brown fried rice comes together in about 20 minutes.
Now in the same skillet or wok you will add in the sesame oil, garlic, and ginger. You just cook for a quick minute. Then you add in the frozen peas and carrots. Cook them for just a few minutes. Next, you add in the cooked rice, soy sauce and oyster sauce. Just cook until heated through then you’ll add back in the onion and scrambled eggs along with some green onion. FYI, for my Weight Watchers personal points, this was only 6 points!
