You might avoid take-out fried rice because of the fat - never fear, we have a heatlhy and every bit as tasty homemade version!
1 cup brown rice
1 cup chicken broth (look for low-sodium)
1/2 cup egg substitute
1/2 tsp mustard powder
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp shredded fresh ginger
1/2 cup carrot chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 8 oz can sliced water chestnuts, drained
2 Tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
1 Cook rice as directed but substitute 1 cup chicken broth for 1 cup water. Let rice cool to room temperature or cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
2 In a small bowl mix together egg substitute and mustard powder until blended. Lightly coat a large skillet or wok with nonstick vegetable spray.
3 Heat skillet, begin stirring over medium heat and add egg mixture. Cook the egg mixture without stirring until it begins to set; until the egg bits are small and crumbly. Remove and set aside.
4 Lightly coat the skillet with nonstick vegetable spray and heat. Add garlic and ginger. Stir while cooking over medium-high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute.
5 Add the carrots and peas. Cook and stir for about 3 minutes until vegetables are tender. Stir in cooked rice, egg mixture, and water chestnuts.
6 Cook and stir until heated through, about 3 minutes. Add soy sauce to rice mixture. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.
