This recipe is filled with asparagus, chopped water chestnuts that create a delicious crunch, and egg whites for added lean protein. You can use this basic recipe for fried rice with whatever veggies you like, broccoli is one of my favorite additions (I buy the frozen broccoli cauliflower blends to save time and money), red pepper slices and bamboo shoots are also fantastic in fried rice!
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup chopped shallots
- 1 can (1 cup) water chestnuts, chopped
- 2 cups chopped asparagus
- 2.25 cups cooked long grain white rice
- 4 egg whites
- 1/3 cup soy sauce (you can opt for low sodium!)
- 2 teaspoons Mirin
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1.- chop and set aside all ingredients, this is super important because the most important part of making a good stir fry is having all the ingredients ready to go so you don’t have to stop cooking
2.- over medium high heat cook onions and garlic with 2 Tablespoons water for 1 minute, add water chestnuts and water as necessary (by the Tablespoon), cook another minute
3.- add rice, cook 1 minute then push everything to the edges of the pan
4.- add egg whites, scramble quickly in the middle then incorporate into the dish
5.- add asparagus, half the soy sauce and mirin, cook 3 minutes
6.- add spices and remaining soy sauce, continue cooking 3-4 minutes until everything is incorporated and asparagus is tender
