Quick 6-Ingredient Garlic Fried Rice Recipe Is Tasty Clean Eating

"We eat a lot of brown rice at our house!" says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®. "Between meal prepping lunches for the week, and also alongside most of our evening meals (think: six teenagers/young adults), I really mean we go through a ton of brown rice."

The best part about this Japanese-inspired vegetarian, gluten-free garlic fried rice recipe is that "all of the ingredients add so much flavor, while also increasing the nutrition. I love it!"

This flavorful clean-eating fried rice recipe will keep in the refrigerator for up to three to four days. But we don't think it'll last that long!

Recipe Notes

  • "Experiment making this with diced onions or shallots if you have some to use up."
  • "You can also try adding other diced veggies such as celery, carrots or even peas right into your skillet with the rice."
  • "Add cooked diced turkey, chicken or pork and you have a complete meal!"
  • "While it’s not traditional at all, this fried rice recipe works great using cooked quinoa and also cauliflower rice."

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add the cooked brown rice and stir-fry for about 1 minute. Bring all the rice to one side of the pan. On the empty side of the skillet, slowly pour in the beaten eggs and cook until almost scrambled.
  2. Drizzle the coconut aminos over the rice. Add the green onions and mix everything together. Remove from heat. Serve hot sprinkled with sesame seeds.
