Ingredients for simple fried rice

  • Brown rice I prefer it because it is less processed than white, and it has fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Normally brown rice has some color, such as light brown, red, black, etc.
  • Asparagus is cut into small pieces, about a fist full.
  • Shiitake mushroom, 5 or 7 mushrooms, sliced. I use the stems, but if you prefer, you can remove them and save them from making vegetable broth or pho.
  • Garlic, sliced ​​, so it doesn’t burn. Fresh Ginger(grated or minced) I like to put it grated better because my children get big chunks.
  • Soy sauce or tamari. If you don’t eat soy products, you can look for coconut aminos. Sesame oil, Rice vinegar, Sambal Salsa, or Sriracha
