Ingredients for simple fried rice

  • Brown rice, I prefer it because it is less processed than white, it has fiber, vitamins and minerals. Normally brown rice has some color, it can be light brown, red, black, etc.
  • Asparagus cut into small pieces about a fistfull
  • Shiitake mushroom, 5 or 7 mushrooms, sliced. I do use the stems, but if you prefer you can remove them and save them to make a vegetable broth or a pho.
  • Garlic, sliced ​​so it doesn’t burn.
  • Fresh Ginger(grated or minced) I like to put it grated better because that way my children get big chunks.
  • Soy sauce or tamari. If you don’t eat soy products you can look for coconut aminos
  • Sesame oil
  • Rice vinegar
  • Salt
  • Sambal Salsa or Sriracha
