Fried Rice with Vegetables (Brown Rice)



My husband kept asking “What’s in this rice?” in an amazed sort of voice. We eat a lot of brown rice, so this was a good change. The picture doesn’t quite show the details, but this rice contains all sorts of yummy pieces in it. It’s a healthy, clean eating version of fried rice that you will love.
