I find it kinda funny how some recipes just seem to come to me out of thin air while others can be right in front of my eyes and I miss them completely. For example, Kenya LOVES eggs, peas and rice, so I can’t believe I didn’t think of making this dish sooner. This isn’t your usual “fried” rice, though, laden with oil and msg. This is a healthy version that has all the flavor of fried rice while still being super easy to make.
I usually prepare a big batch of brown rice to keep in the fridge for everyone in the house to nibble on all week. Also, since you can make so many fast simple sauces to mix in with brown rice, having some already cooked makes meal time that much simpler. I try as much as possible to give Kenya recipes without salt, but that would cut out a ton of Chinese and Japanese dishes I want to make him, so I use Bragg Liquid Aminos as an alternative. Bragg’s has less sodium than soy sauce and has 16 amino acids, the basic structural building blocks of proteins.
This is a great dish to take along when you don’t want to carry three different food groups on an outing. With this one, you have everything all in one dish!

  1. This is a staple in our house. We all love it. I at least double the ingredients and usually follow the recipe exactly but am planning on trying adding shrimp. I also use toasted sesame oil (a couple of teaspoons) to add flavor. This is a great summer dish for us when I don’t like to spend a lot of time cooking. I set up my rice cooker on a timer so my rice is already done when I start prepping the dish.

  2. […] so I stuck to easy things like Applegate Farms turkey breast and Cabot cheddar cheese kabobs and chicken fried rice (inspired by one of Weelicious’ blogs), along fruit and some muffins we made from raspberries […]

  3. I used mushrooms instead of peas and loved it, but my 13 month old found it too difficult to eat. I’m guessing the toddler-friendly reference in this recipe refers to older toddlers.
