With 2 kids, a full time job, a house, a husband and a blog, there’s not a lot of extra time for cooking at our house. One of the challenges that also make meal times more difficult is that I’m a vegetarian and that my family isn’t, which means we often have to have 2 separate versions of the meals we make. I’m always on the lookout for new quick and healthy meal options that allow us to eat well, but don’t take a lot of time and I was recently asked by the folks at Minute® Rice to try come up with a quick and easy recipe.
One of my favorites that my family doesn’t care for is fried rice. I don’t make it often since I’m the only one that eats it, but I was thrilled to find these handy single serving size containers of Minute Rice where I could make just enough for me. Last night I had a quiet house while my stepdaughter was gone at her moms and my husband and son were at the circus, so I decided to try stir up some fried rice just for me to enjoy. Here’s how to make it.
Easy 4 Ingredient Fried Rice
- 1 Egg
- Soy Sauce
- Minute Rice Ready to Serve Brown Rice
- Can of Mixed Veggies
- Scramble egg in skillet
- Add in rice, 1/2 of a can of mixed veggies and soy sauce (amount depends upon tastes)
- Stir fry until warm
I’ve used Minute Rice for many years. For this recipe I used their Ready to Serve product, but even their regular boxed rice is ready in less than 10 minutes. They have great tasting fluffy white rice and rich, nutty whole grain brown rice. It’s a great staple to have on hand for an easy side dish to mix up with sauces, leftovers and more for quick and easy meals. Their products are gluten free too.
