Easy Fried Rice

This Chef V recipe satisfies a craving for carbs with high fiber brown rice, healthy seasonings, and very flavorful veggies. Make it easy on yourself and prep enough for several meals, so when you aren’t motivated but have to eat, you reach for this healthy entrée and not for chips.

Chef V tip: For more protein, add 1 pound chopped grilled chicken. This is a great side or a meal in itself.

  1. Spray a grill or grill pan with coconut oil cooking spray. Cook veggies for 3-5 minutes per side, until done. Remove from grill, cut into 1-inch pieces, and set aside.

    Sauté onions in 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes, or until translucent. Add garlic, remaining oil, and cooked rice. Cook for 1-2 minutes, then stir in 1 tablespoon of coconut aminos. Continue to cook for 1 more minute. Slowly stir in the remaining coconut aminos, diced pineapple, and grilled veggies. Cook for 2 minutes. Stir in cilantro and red pepper flakes, if desired. Remove from heat, plate, and serve hot.
