Ready in under 30 minutes, fried rice is the perfect weeknight meal. Fried rice can be a delicious way to sneak veggies and protein into a picky eater’s meal—especially when drizzled with sriracha. Give traditional fried rice a nutrition boost by swapping out white rice for brown rice, quinoa or cauliflower.
KEEN-wah is still a trending high-protein, gluten-free grain. It goes from raw to cooked in just 15 minutes, so you can make a quick dinner on Monday and then use the leftovers on Tuesday in this fried rice recipe.
If you’re looking for a low carb alternative to rice, cauliflower is your new go-to. When shredded in a food processor, the texture is quite similar to fried rice.
Swap out white rice for brown rice for a dish that is higher in fiber and B vitamins (and still tastes great!).
