This is a simple dish that uses up leftover rice. It can have many different ingredients added or substituted in it.

Fried Brown Rice

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 eggs beaten with 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp garlic minced
  • 2 carrots diced small
  • 1/2 onion diced fine
  • 6-8 shitake mushrooms diced small
  • 6-8 basil leaves shredded
  • 2 oz tofu diced small

In a large wok or frying pan heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil over medium heat. Saute onion until translucent then add carrot and mushrooms. Saute until carrot is soft then add garlic and tofu and fry until fragrant. Push mixture up the sides of pan and add egg. Quickly scramble mixing with the vegetables. Add rice and coat with everything, stirring often to keep rice from clumping up or sticking. Add basil and serve with extra soy sauce and hot sauce.
