Broccoli fried rice

Broccoli Fried Rice is an easy Asian side that’s healthy, hearty and the perfect way to get your family to eat their veggies! I love the idea of an all-broccoli version of this, but I know not to test my luck too far, so for us, an equal amount of chopped broccoli to brown rice is the perfect compromise for the whole family. Just like cauliflower rice, you place the broccoli florets in the food processor and pulse until they resemble a rice-like texture. Be sure to watch is carefully because, if you process too far, then you’re on your way to pesto, but if you process it too little, then those indistinguishable grains of broccoli become chunks of green you’re child will refuse to eat. This is for our 152nd #foodiemonday #Bloghop event and our theme is #Asiancuisine. check out the recipe below and enjoy.


2 cups chopped broccoli
3 cups cooked and cooled rice
1 tbsp sesame oil, divided
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 cup frozen beans and carrots
3 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sesame seed
1/2 cup sliced green onion
2 green chilies, chopped


1. Add broccoli to a food processor. Pulse until broccoli resembles rice.

2. Heat a large non-stick pan to a high heat. Add 2 teaspoons sesame oil. Once the oil is hot, add onion and garlic. Use a wooden spoon to stir-fry veggies until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add broccoli, continue to stir-fry another minute until broccoli begins to cook. Add remaining oil and rice. Continue to use the wooden spoon to stir-fry the mixture for another 2 minutes.

3. Add green chilies, beans, carrots, soy sauce and garlic powder. Continue to cook another 2-3 minutes until sauce has coated all the rice and veggies. Reduce the heat to medium and make a well in the center of the mixture. Mix in to the rice.

Add green onion. Toss. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
