Diabetic-Friendly Recipe: "Fried" brown rice
For my aunties and my mama! Found a recipe for a more healthy version of fried rice. I am kind of skiddish about cooking brown rice (even though I have a rice cooker) because last time I tried it didn't turn out well.
Enjoy and let me know if you try this! (Nutrition facts and diabetic exchange facts are below the recipe!)
"Fried" brown rice
Coat a large, nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add margarine, and melt over medium heat. Add egg substitute and stir-fry until egg is set (like scrambled egg). Stir in onion, rice, broth, and peas and carrots; stir to mix. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat, cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir, and cover. Let stand 7 minutes, fluff with a fork, and serve.
