Macro Fried Rice and Veggies

macro fried riceWith the summer months upon us, I have been desperately trying to eat well, and in moderation.  Tonight I got home and realized, it was a getting a bit late for dinner, and everyone around me was eating fried take out! That is NO way to help my cause but it led me to crave some fried rice.  Who knew you could have that same tasty and fulfilling rice Macro style?

Well my loves, YOU CAN!

Here’s what you need:

1 cup onions, diced

1 cup cabbage, cut into 1-inch chunks

1/2 cup carrots, cut into matchsticks

1-2 tablespoons water

4 cups pressure-cooked brown rice

1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Dark sesame oil

Tamari

What to Do:

Heat a small amount of dark sesame oil in a skillet.  Sautee onions over high flame for 3-4 minutes.

Reduce flame to medium-low and layer cabbage, carrots, and rice on top.

Add 1-2 tablespoons of water.

Cover skillet, reduce flame to low. and cook until all vegetables are tender and rice is warm and soft.  Just before vegetables are done, season with a little tamari and add a chopped parsley.

Mix rice with vegetables and continue to cook for another 3-5 minutes.

Now enjoy, as I did.

Better than the real thing I say, you don’t feel guilty and don’t have any trace of post party gut-rot.
