Brown rice & egg make a fibre packed and protein-heavy fried rice for any meal!
There’s nothing I love more than fried rice. Put a fried egg and runny yolk on top and I’m sold!
Brown rice makes this dish high in fibre. Add an egg on top for extra protein! Slice avocado for that healthy fat that I make sure to include in every meal! Spice it up, add veggies… You got a dish that’s great for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Check out the recipe below for my Fried Rice with Egg & Avocado!
Fried Rice with Egg & Avocado
2 cups cooked brown rice (or any grain)
1 1/2 inch piece of ginger, peeled & grated
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1 cup bean sprouts
2 tbsp tamari
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp ghee or olive oil
4 eggs, fried (sunny side up or over easy)
1 avocado, sliced
- Heat 1 tbsp of ghee and sesame oil in large nonstick skillet or wok, over medium high heat. Add grated ginger, cook until fragrant. Add carrots and bean sprouts and cook until softened, for about 2 minutes. Add in the rice and cook until rice starts to crisp up (I like my fried rice crispy). Add beaten egg, stir to combine and breakup the egg. Keep cooking until vegetables are cooked and rice is crisped up to your liking, about 3-5 minutes. Add tamari and toss to coat. Give it a taste, add salt and pepper to your like or more tamari.
- Divide fried rice among bowls. Top with sliced avocado.
- Fry up eggs to your liking. I like to make crispy eggs over this – cook over high heat until set.
- Top rice and avocado with fried egg. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chilli flakes!
