Fried Rice

Fried Rice

Who says you can’t have a healthy version of fried rice that tastes amazing. In this recipe, I added carrots and peas to this recipe, but you can add any veggies you have on hand that your family enjoys. My kids also enjoy it with broccoli and mushrooms. Quinoa can be used in this recipe too, for added protein. Fish sauce adds a tang without making the dish taste fishy, which my kids would never stand for. As a side dish or a main course, this recipe will become a family favorite.
