One of my favorite ways to cook is to take classic comfort foods and try to make them healthy. Sometimes they don’t always work out, but then there’s times like this (or that time) where the recipe comes out and you can’t believe that it’s healthy and you probably won’t ever go back to the take out version.
Do you remember my latest post on my recipe for teriyaki roasted veggies? Well, I used those to create this healthy “fried” rice! I love it when recipes are versatile and you can change up how you want to use them.
This recipe is a good mix of both fresh and roasted vegetables, fluffy eggs, brown rice, salty feta cheese, and tons of different spices! I made my vegetarian (because if you didn’t know, I am one now), but you can easily add chicken, shrimp, pork, or even beef to this recipe and it will turn out just as good!
- 1 pan of roasted teriyaki vegetables
- 4 cups of cooked brown rice
- 8 scrambled eggs
- 1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
- 2 cup raw spinach
- 1/2 cup low-fat feta cheese
- At the same time that you have the veggies roasting (directions here), cook your brown rice.
- In a pan, scramble 8 large eggs with a splash of almond milk & red chili flakes
- Slice 1 cup of sliced cherry tomatoes
- Mix your roasted veggies, cooked rice, scrambled eggs, and fresh veggies in the same pan that your vegetables were just roasting in
- Top with 1/2 cup low-fat feta cheese
- Pop back in then oven at 350 degrees for about 5-10 minutes, until cheese begins to melt down and ingredients blend together
