While thinking of how I was going to introduce this healthy version of fried rice on my blog I was reminded of obsession with Bruce Lee, and what I really mean by that is Jason Scott Lee as Bruce Lee. I know, really weak connection; Chinese-inspired food and a famous Chinese movie star….being portrayed by a Hawaiian in the classic film Dragon: the Bruce Lee Story.
But seriously, wouldn’t you use any excuse to post this?
First I heated up a pan with:
- 2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
- 1 chopped yellow onion
- A couple of tablespoons of olive oil
- 1/4 cup corn
I would have added way more corn because I love it but it’s been in my freezer a long time and it’s….questionable. So I decided to only add a bit.
Once the onions were soft I added:
- 1 cup chopped green chard
- 1 cup bok choy chopped
- 2 cups cooked brown rice
I chopped them up really small just like the ingredients in traditional friend rice.
To get the flavor I added:
- Juice of 1/2 lime
- 1 tbsp tumeric (mostly to get that yellow colour)
- 1/4 cup soy sauce (at most, I added it until I liked the taste)
I didn’t but you could totally add some jalapeno for some kick.
I mean compared to traditional fried rice this has a lot of good stuff in it! The brown rice didn’t even taste like brown rice (in some dishes the texture of brown rice stands out too much).
