One-Skillet Vegetarian Fried Forbidden Rice ready in less than 20 minutes!
Up until about a month ago, I never had or even heard of forbidden rice before. I tried it in an asian-flared tofu dish and was immediately hooked.
I went to Whole Foods the next day looking for it and at was shocked there weren’t many options. Only one brand made forbidden rice that was sold there! I bought a few packages (it isn’t cheap BTW) and immediately whipped up this fried rice.
I am a fried rice lover. I definitely do not eat it often or order take out from Chinese restaurants much, but when I was younger, OMG. I would order the pork fried rice (HA good times) or the chicken fried rice if I was feeling “healthy”. Then I found out how much sodium and unnecessary fat was in it and wanted to puke, so my Mom started making us healthier versions at home.
We would use brown rice, some fresh veggies, eggs and whatever protein we were craving.
Now I am making One-Skillet Vegetarian Fried Forbidden Rice and feeling oh so fancy. Except this dish couldn’t be easier to prepare.
It is filled with veggies (organic when possible), pasture-raised eggs and mixed with my homemade fried rice sauce. It is a vegetarian fried rice heaven. Who needs take out now, right?
I also added some fresh greens to sauté in this dish too from Organic Girl. I used the Super Spinach because it also had baby bok choy and kale in it. Pretty much the trifecta of greens. Plus it’s triple washed and always stocked up in my Whole Foods. I use Organic Girl in a variety of my dishes as you see here.
This One-Skillet Vegetarian Fried Forbidden Rice is the ultimate healthy quick dish to make on weekdays. You can eat it warm or cold (I personally love it cold). Make a big batch on Sunday’s and pack it for lunch for work or just have it waiting for you for dinner. Either way you will love.
You can also add another protein besides the eggs if preferred. I love that this is veggie-filled but Jord wanted some meats in there of course 🙂
If you do make this dish, don’t forget to share with me on social. You babes are going to love!
