American Lite Fried Rice

Rated as 3.18 out of 5 Stars

"I came up with this recipe when I was craving fried rice and needed something lower in fat. The cabbage blends in with the rice so that even your kids won't know they are eating a vegetable. My husband likes to eat this for a late dinner because it's so light. Be creative or use whatever is in your fridge. Like it Spicy? Add some chili sauce. This dish goes great with baked spring rolls!"

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Stir in rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic and rice in oil for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently to avoid burning the garlic. Add broccoli and cauliflower florets and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes. Toss green onions, carrots, cabbage, and water chestnuts into the pan, and cook another 5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Add additional water as needed to keep vegetables moist. Drizzle with soy sauce, and toss to coat.

Good recipe but I cut down on the oil by using stock and spraying the wok with cooking spray. Also added a little shredded chicken.

This recipe was okay, but I used sesame oil instead of vegetable oil to give it a nice flavor. It should have been mentioned that fried rice is made w/ day-old rice, because the texture does no...

This was a good base recipe and the first time I added cabbage to fried rice so I'm happy to say that it was a great addition; I did not follow the recipe entirely since I had no broccoli, I dec...

Unfortunately this recipe was rather, well, disgusting. There was a strange unpleasant flavour.

We wound up trying sesame oil and Chinese 5 spice to add some flavor. None turned out well.

I decided to try this since I had 2 heads of cabbage and I don't like cabbage. I used frozen broccoli and cauliflower, lots of garlic and no carrots. Finally I found something to do with cabba...
