  • 1-1/2 cups uncooked brown rice
  • 2 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed or olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 large crown broccoli chopped into florets
  • 2 cups shredded carrot
  • 1 (2-inch) nub fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper optional
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped
  • 1 cup green peas frozen or canned
  • 3 tablespoons to 4 liquid aminos to taste, or low-sodium soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt to taste
  • 2.5 ounces baby spinach
  • 3 large eggs well beaten and scrambled
Optional Add-ins:
  • Chopped roasted peanuts
  • teaspoons Wasabi 2-3 recommended
  • tablespoons Tahini 2 to 3 recommended
  • tablespoons Hot sauce 1 to 2 Sriracha recommended
  1. Cook the brown rice according to package instructions.
  2. While rice is cooking, saute the vegetables. Add the olive oil to a large skillet, wok, or saucepan and heat to medium-high. Add the broccoli and bell pepper and cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of water, cover, and continue cooking until broccoli is bright green and veggies have begun softening, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add the shredded carrot, ginger, garlic, cumin, and cayenne. Continue cooking until garlic and ginger are very fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  4. Transfer the cooked rice to the skillet with the veggies, along with the green onion, peas, and liquid aminos. Stir everything together well and reduce the heat to medium-low. Allow the rice mixture to sit as you scramble the eggs in a separate skillet.
  5. Once cooked through, add the scrambled eggs to the fried rice, along with the spinach. Cover and cook until spinach has wilted, about 3 minutes.
  6. Stir everything well and taste for flavor. Add sea salt to taste, along with more liquid aminos, hot sauce, tahini, wasabi, etc. Serve alongside your favorite entree.
