Howdy friends! How is your week going? Remember, it’s Friday eve!!!
I have been lacking some major cooking mojo these days. I feel like lately my cook switch has been turned off. The thought of sitting down and making a meal plan seemed completely overwhelming these past few weeks, but I knew if I didn’t start cooking soon, we might have to sell the house to pay for all of the takeout we’ve been eating.
I also knew as soon as I got my butt back into the kitchen it would light that fire again. My first homemade meal in WAY too long was my cleaner version of chicken fried rice. It is super simple, and very flavorful.
I was not about chopping, and prepping much, so here is the almost homemade version:
1 bag mixed frozen vegetables (Peas, Carrots, and Corn)
3 Cups brown rice cooked
2 Cooked chicken breasts chopped, or you can use firm tofu to make Lacto/Ovo vegetarian
4T Liquid Aminos
2 Cloves garlic minced
2T MCT oil
1T Sesame Oil
-In a large saute pan heat MCT oil over medium heat cook garlic about 2 mins or until fragrant.
-Add frozen vegetables until warmed through.
-Add chopped chicken, heat through.
-Move veggies and chicken to one side of pan and add sesame oil to the other side.
-Scramble eggs in the open side of the pan. Once scrambled combine ingredients in pan.
-Add brown rice and liquid aminos to the veggies and chicken. Mix well, heat through, and enjoy!
Until next time,
