Breakfast Fried Rice


I was sooooooo ravenously hungry when I walked in from my morning walk that I just had to figure something out quickly. I opened my refrigerator door and saw leftover chicken, meatballs, rice, fish, noodles, and zucchini sliced like thin chips (we used it for a lasagna a few nights back). Hmmmmmm.

My mind flashed back to an article I read by Andrea Beaman about reusing rice, so I decided to try and make some sort of breakfast “fried”‘ rice (without the frying). I threw the following ingredients into the pan (measurements are approximate as I was in a hurry):

  • 1 cup of leftover whole-grain Basmati rice
  • 1/2 cup zucchini, chopped fine or shredded
  • 1/8 cup sweet onion, chopped fine
  • 2 meatballs, chopped fine (you can substitute sausage, ground turkey, chicken, or any meat substitute you would like…I just wanted to use my leftovers or I would have tried our organic apple maple chicken sausage instead)
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Any other greens, vegetables, or spices you would like to add (that will pair well with the maple syrup)
  • 1 organic egg

Sauté all ingredients but the egg using medium heat until the vegetables are the desired consistency. Add the egg and continue to sauté until the egg is cooked through. Remove from heat, add to your plate and sprinkle with cinnamon or sea salt.

I really enjoyed this, and the best part was it only took about 5-10 minutes to cook. My stomach is now happy and full, and I hope you enjoy it as well. Please let me know how you customize and spice this up to suit your tastes! I think this may be one of my new favorite breakfasts.

This ALLicious breakfast is free of Gluten, Dairy, Corn, Soy, Processed Sugars, Gluten, Peanuts, Tree Nuts. To make it egg-free, replace the egg with 2 tbsps of Olive or Coconut Oil and a tbsp or so of hemp seeds for fiber, protein, and omega 3s.
