Edamame Fried Rice-Healthy and Easy!


so I finally have a new recipe to share with you all!

last night I made some Edamame Fried Rice with brown rice and it turned out to be delicious!

First over high heat you sautee 1 tbsp minced ginger in 1tsp of sesame oil and a couple sprays of cooking spray

allow that to cook for a minute or so and then add in a bag of broccoli slaw

after a couple minutes add in about 2 cups of frozen edamame and 3 tbsp of soy sauce

then add in 1 tbsp of roasted red chile paste (this is found by the Asian food products in the grocery store, but if you don’t have any some siracha hot sauce would also do!)

next add in about 3 cups of cooked brown rice, and stir it all together. Create a hole in the middle of the pan and crack in two whole eggs. Whisk them around a bit and then stir it all together. Cook for another 3 minutes until the eggs are cooked through

and voila! fried rice homemade thats about 10x healthier than any fried rice from a restaurant!


Edamame Fried Rice

Servings: about 2 full portions, and 4 side portions

Total Time: 15 minutes (if you buy the “boil in a bag” brown rice that takes 10 minutes to cook)


  • 3 cups cooked brown rice (I use the instant “boil in a bag” brown rice for recipes like this)
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 bag (about 3 cups) broccoli slaw
  • 2 cups frozen edamame (or fresh is fine too)
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp roasted red chile paste (can substitute siracha hot sauce if desired)
  • 2 eggs


  1. preheat a wok or skillet over high heat with 1 tsp sesame oil and a few sprays of cooking spray (or a bit of canola oil)
  2. add in the ginger and cook for 1 minute
  3. add in the broccoli slaw, cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add in the edamame, soy sauce, and roasted red chile paste and cook for another minute.
  5. Add in the cooked brown rice and cook for another minute.
  6. Create a well in the middle of the pan and crack in the 2 eggs.
  7. Whisk eggs around with a fork so they start to scramble and then stir then into the rice.
  8. Cook for another 3 minutes until eggs are cooked through
  9. Season to taste, adding more soy sauce if desired, and serve!

Note: Some fresh lime juice would be a nice addition!



i served the fried rice alongside some baked tofu

I used extra firm tofu, sliced into about 1/4 of an inch slices. I topped the tofu in a bit of terriyaki sauce and baked it at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes.

This dinner hit the spot! Oh and of course as you can see I topped my fried rice with a heavy dose of siracha sauce..I like my food spiccccyyy:)

I hope you all have a great Tuesday!


Question for ya!: What is your favorite way to cook tofu?

I normally just always bake it!..Do you have any other suggestions for me?
