You must make this easy broccoli and egg fried rice ASAP! It is packed with broccoli goodness, perfect for days when you crave for a healthy and meat free meal. Plus it only requires 20 minutes or under from start to finish!
Fried rice is a dish that has saved me a lot of money since I started my home cooking journey a decade ago.
Thanks to the versatility of fried rice recipes, you can use it to use up leftovers. This helps you to clean out your fridge by the end of the week. The beauty of this is you can still squeeze out a meal or two before reaching for a take-out menu. To me, that’s a win I relished when cooking at home!
Do you find yourself subconsciously putting broccoli into your shopping basket while walking down the fresh fruits and vegetables aisle? Broccoli is such a staple vegetable in my household that I just buy it by default. I love my broccoli to be slightly under cooked. This is to ensure it retains some slight crunch when the fried rice is ready to serve. After all broccoli is the star of this easy and budget friendly egg fried rice!
1 Tablespoon kecap manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce)
Heat oil in a pan over medium flame. When the oil is hot, pour the lightly beaten eggs. Cook until the eggs are scrambled.
Turn the flame to low, use a spatula to push the eggs to a side and add garlic. Not mixing with the egg, saute the garlic until aromatic and very lightly brown.
Add broccoli with a pinch of salt. Mixing with the rest of the ingredients in the pan (e.g eggs & garlic), cook the broccoli florets over medium flame until they turned bright green, especially the stalk section.
Add mixed vegetables and rice and stir to combine. Saute the mixture for a minute over high heat.
Then turn the flame to low, add soy sauce and sweet soy sauce. Stir again to combine all ingredients. Turn the flame to high again, cook the fried rice another 20 second. Serve immediately.
Add in the red curry paste and mixed vegetables and stir to combine. The fried is ready when the mixed vegetable is heated through.
