- 1 tsp ghee, butter or olive oil
- 3/4 cup brown basmati rice
- 1 cup veggie stock
- 1 organic carrot, tiny diced
- 1 cup fresh or frozen organic sweet peas
- 2 pasture raised eggs
- 1/2 tsp soy sauce or coconut aminos
In a stock pot or large skillet heat ghee. Add rice and stir until rice becomes aromatic or turn slightly white. About 3-4 minutes on medium heat.
Add veggie stock. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 2-3 minutes. There should still be some liquid left.
Add peas and carrots. Cook on low until all liquid is absorbed and veggies are softer. This should be about 5-8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small skillet scramble cook the 2 eggs with a little ghee.
When rice and veggies are done stir in eggs and soy sauce.
Serve hot as a side dish or as a meal.
NOTE: Easily made vegan by omitting the ghee or butter and using olive oil and removing the eggs from the recipe.
