Today I was reviewing my Kickstart Guide that I received from WW when we switched over to the new PP plan. I came up with a quick way to make fried rice. And of so tasty too!
If you are wondering what the Kickstart guide is, go back to your Getting Started booklet, there is a “tear-out” section, that is called, oddly enough, the Kickstart Guide. It folds out and contains lots of information to give you a “kick-start” on meal building and planning. I know I need a kick in the pants right now.
So, for lunch, I started with the rice, then added, egg, and then topped it off with an oil. I utilized some Power up foods, and bulked it with garden veggie soup.
Here is the recipe I used to make the fried rice.
Easy Fried Rice
6 PP per serving
- Trader Joe’s Jasmine rice, cooked and cooled
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
- one egg
- green onions, chopped
- orange pepper, chopped
- 1 teaspoon reduced sodium soy sauce
- pepper to taste
Make sure the rice has been cooled in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. You can use leftover rice. Just don’t use freshly cooked hot rice, because it will get mushy.
Add 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil to a hot frying pan. Saute the onions and the peppers. Feel free to use, chopped carrots, and or red peppers .
Add the cold rice and fry till the rice heats up. You can season with the pepper here.
Move the rice to the side of the pan and add the egg.
Did you notice two grains of rice on the edge of the bowl, trying to get away from me before I eat them up.?
So the moral to this story is, WW is easy.
