  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 3/4 cup cooked rice (I like to use cooked brown rice)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • salt and pepper , to taste (optional)


  • Melt the butter in a medium-sized pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onions to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally for 2 minutes.
  • Add the minced garlic to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally for 1 minute.
  • Add the cooked rice to the pan and cook, stirring for 30 seconds. Push the rice, onions, and garlic to the sides of the pan.
  • Add the egg to the center of the pan and cook the egg until scrambled. When the egg is almost completely cooked mix it in with the rice/onion mixture.
  • Add the peas and the corn to the pan and cook, stirring for 1 minute.
  • Stir in the soy sauce and taste. Add salt and pepper, if necessary.


I often use brown rice in this fried rice recipe. You can find the recipe here -
