Loaded Fried Rice: Swap the Take Out

Loaded Fried Rice

I have had my fair share of take away meals. Great for convenience and usually very tasty. These days I create most of the meals that my family eats, mainly for health reasons. I know exactly what we are eating and can control the nutrients. So if you like the idea of being across what your family is eating you might like the idea of a take away meal you can make yourself. One that is super enjoyable and packed with veggies that everyone will love. Loaded Fried Rice.

Loaded Fried Rice is so easy to make and it is as versatile as the veggies you have on hand. You could really swap out any of those I have chosen for vegetables your family enjoys and you know will make the meal a success. Loaded Fried Rice is a meal in itself with protein, carbohydrates and a range of delicious vegetables offering many, many benefits.

For this meal I chose to include

  • peas, for potassium and heart health
  • mushrooms, for fibre
  • broccolini, for vitamins A and C for immunity boosting properties
  • brown rice, for fibre and a plethora of minerals, and
  • carrots, for beta carotene, Vitamin K, potassium and anti oxidants

For protein I chose eggs and wild caught prawns – both super delicious.

I think the best thing is that once you cook the rice this meal comes together in about 20 minutes. So it is a quick and easy meal. You will eat it faster than if you ordered take away.

So choose Loaded Fried Rice. Your family will love it and you will feel good about how good it really is.

Instructions

  1. Boil the brown rice according to the directions on the packet – say around 40 minutes ( I use the absorbtion method on the stove). Cook the egg in a large frying pan coated with oil, omlette style. Remove and slice. Then cook prawns until firm and pink. Add vegetables and stir fry. Return the egg to the pan. Then add all the rice and add the soy sauce until the taste is to your liking. Serve hot as a complete and delicious meal.
