Asian-Style Brown Fried Rice

The first recipe for tonight is brown fried rice that we served with teriyaki chicken as a side. We've been trying to eat healthier (although it hasn't been very successful), so instead of making fried rice with white rice, I decided to use brown rice. It's a pretty good alternative when you're really craving some carbs. Enjoy!

Asian-Style Brown Fried Rice
For the Fried Rice:
2C Brown Rice, Cooked & Cold
2T Vegetable Oil
1 Egg, Scrambled
½C Frozen Peas & Carrots
¼ Sweet Onion, Chopped
2 Green Onions, Chopped
1t Garlic, Chopped
1T Low Sodium Soy Sauce
Salt & Pepper, To Taste

1. Heat a sautĂ© pan to medium high heat and spray with Pam. Beat an egg and scramble until cooked, and set aside. Drizzle the vegetable oil in the pan and cook the sweet onions until tender. Next add the garlic, peas, and carrots. Simmer for about 5 minutes. After this mixture has cooked, add the cold, cooked brown rice, slowly heat the rice with the soy sauce until the rice is heated and soft. At the last minute, add the chopped green onion, cooked egg, salt, and pepper.
2. Serve with the Healthy Teriyaki Chicken & sauteed broccoli.
