Vegetable "Fried" Rice with Almond-Teriyaki Sauce

Vegetable Fried Rice

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups pre-cooked brown rice
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 small package (10 oz) frozen green beans
  • 2 Tbsp slivered almonds
  • 2 Tbsp reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Cooking oil spray
  • 4 eggs

 

Directions:

Cook rice, and heat green beans according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large non-stick pan, sautée onion pieces in a thin layer of water. When the onions become translucent, add almonds and Teriyaki sauce. Add minimal water as needed; when liquid begins to absorb, mix in green beans and almond butter. Add rice to pan, mixing in garlic and cayenne pepper. Meanwhile, spray a medium nonstick pan with cooking oil spray, and fry eggs. Divide vegetable-and-rice mixture into four bowls, topping each bowl with a fried egg. Serves 4.
