Healthy Basil Fried Rice

Fried rice. Simple, quick, and easy – as long as you’ve cooked your rice ahead of time, that is! I like to make it in the morning before work, so its ready to go when I come home. Then just fry up your egg or tofu, add veggies, and you’re golden.

Some recipe notes: I fry my eggs in coconut oil or butter. It doesn’t seem to affect the taste, and its healthier too. Coconut oil also has a high temperature point, which browns the egg nicely.  I use Bragg’s liquid aminos instead of soy sauce, and I find it tastes just as good. For the veggies, I use frozen mixed vegetables from Meijer, which work really nicely. Alternatively, you could throw mushrooms or onions. You can add broccoli, but remember that it’ll take longer to cook.
