We often think of fried rice greasy and unhealthy. But this fried rice is packed with meat and fresh vegetables. It is a one-bowl meal that has it all. When making this at home, you can control the amount of oil and what kind of vegetables or meat that go in. The possibilities are endless!
1 teaspoon oil
a little bit of soy sauce or salt to taste
1 egg – beaten with or without a little bit of salt and oil then cooked lightly on a frying pan.
1/3 cup of cooked meat (I used Chinese honey BBQ pork, but you can use whatever you have on hand)
1/4 cup of cooked broccoli
1/4 cup of finely chopped cooked carrot
3 cups of cooked rice
Alternative ingredients – zucchini, green peas, corn, spinach, celery, bok choy, asparagus
Cook all the ingredients. Vegetables can be steamed or boiled. Put ingredients except rice into food processor or blender and get to the size your little one prefer. If easier, you can also chop by hand, but it can be time consuming. In a non-stick pan, heat oil and add each ingredients in this order – meat, vegetables, rice, and egg. Keep stir to make sure everything is cooked through, heated up, and mixed. Add soy sauce or salt to taste.
This is a nutritious recipe but can be time consuming if you don’t use a food processor or a blender. Have fun with experimenting different combinations!
