This recipe brings some oomph to otherwise boring brown rice. All you need to add is some soy sauce, fresh ginger, and scallions for an Asian flair to this mealtime mainstay.
Let’s talk about the glow.

Quick Asian Rice
Ingredients (1 serving)

- 1 tbsp of extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp of fresh ginger, chopped
- 2 tbsp of scallions, chopped
- 2 tbsp of soy sauce
Chop scallions and ginger and add to hot pan with extra virgin olive oil. They should make a sizzling sound upon touching the oil. Fry for 30 seconds before adding rice.
Cook brown rice according to package instructions to yield 1 cup of cooked brown rice.
Add the brown rice and 2 tbsp of soy sauce to the pan with scallions and ginger. Stir so the soy sauce is evenly distributed and mixture continues to fry for approximately 1 minute.
And just like that, you’re done.
