Healthy Vegetable Fried Rice
I realized with my health that isn't good and my age which isn't to my advantage, I should start to eat healthier. This is healthier my Chinese Fried Rice that I posted, both are great, this one is surprisingly good.
|1 cup rice of your choice(we use Jasmine Rice, makes more than a cup of rice)|
|2 eggs, lightly beaten(If you choose you can use 3 egg whites or 2 egg whites and 1 yoke)|
|2 teaspoons vegetable oil|
2 Belgium Endive(sounds exotic but if my market has it yours will also)
1 Radicchio (a small chinese cabbage mostly red with a bit of white)
|1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced into 1-inch pieces|
|4 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces(if I don't have scallions, I use shallots)|
|1 clove garlic, minced|
|1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger|
|4 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce|
|2 tablespoons rice vinegar|
|1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil|
|hot sauce if you so choose, as much as you like||
Coat a large nonstick Shillet or wok or skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Pour in eggs and cook, stirring gently, until just set, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Keep separate on a dish or bowl until needed.
Heat oil in the pan or Wok over medium-high. Add all vegetablesbell pepper, scallions, garlic and ginger; cook, stirring, until the vegetables are just tender. Add the cooked rice, soy sauce and vinegar to the pan; cook until the liquid is absorbed, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Fold in the cooked eggs. Remove from the heat; stir in sesame oil and hot sauce.
