  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup canned peas
  • 1 cup canned sliced carrots cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the brown rice, water, coconut milk, ginger and salt. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat. Simmer for 30-40 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the three large eggs.
  3. Once the rice is cooked, add the vegetable oil to a large frying pan and bring to medium heat. Add the eggs to the pan and cook until the eggs start to set—about 3 minutes. Add the rice to the frying pan and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Add the peas, carrots and soy sauce and heat for 1 minute. Remove from heat and serve!
