A healthy take on fried rice!
The traditional fried rice but without the extra oils. It still has the same great teriyaki flavor with vegetables mixed in. It makes a wonderful meal for families to share.
If you're from Hawaii, you've probably tried about 20 different fried rice recipes. You've probably had your fair share of oily versions. That's why Bonny’s ‘No-Fry Fried Rice’ caught our attention. Although we were skeptical at first, we were surprised at how good it tasted! We also didn’t feel like we were weighed down after, which made us feel good.
Brown rice is an easy way to up your intake of dietary fiber.
It’s quick and easy to make. Hope you enjoy it!
Wash the rice and cook it in a rice cooker or by directions on the package
While the rice is cooking, prepare all the ingredients. Cut the mushrooms, onions, carrots and green onions to your preferred size
Add a teaspoon of water to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and wait for it to simmer, then throw in the carrots and onions; cook for about 5 minutes
Reduce the heat to medium and add the mushrooms, spinach, corn, and green onions to the pan. Add a tablespoon of water at a time when needed so the veggies don’t stick to the pan
Prepare the sauce while the veggies are cooking. Put the tamari/shoyu, garlic, and sugar in a small saucepan and stir until all the sugar is dissolved
Add the cornstarch to the water and mix well, until all the cornstarch is dissolved. Then pour the cornstarch mixture into the sauce and stir. Allow the sauce to boil to increase its thickness then turn off the heat
Add the cooked rice to the vegetables and mix to combine a little bit, then add the sauce and mix well for everything to be evenly coated
Serve and enjoy!
