Prawn Fried Rice


I love fried rice but I never order when I eat out, it’s usually coated in greasy oil and lacking in vegetables. This is made with brown rice and includes a bunch of veggies to make it a nourishing meal.

If you have leftover rice from a previous meal, it will come together in no time at all. It’s such a simple meal but it’s surprisingly satisfying and if you’ve got a large family to feed or love leftovers, this recipe is perfect. It’s also highly adaptable, you could experiment by adding different vegetables and protein.
