What type of takeout food do you crave?
As soon as I received my most recent shipment of goodies from FODY Foods, and saw their new sauces and marinades I knew I HAD to get busy in the kitchen creating some of my favorite takeout meals! This low FODMAP Vegetable Fried Rice was an instant winner!
The trick to getting this fried rice to be “just right” is using leftover rice. Using leftover rice gives the dish the texture you are craving AND this dish turns into a great way to use food that is on its last leg. Low FODMAP Vegetable Fried Rice has become my new “clean out the fridge meal!”
While making restaurant quality fried rice may seem a bit daunting, this recipe is actually very simple and comes together pretty quickly.
Because it is an absolute “clean out the fridge meal” and comes together so quickly in my mind it is a perfect meal for a Friday night 🙂
Let’s take a look at what is IN this recipe!
Cooked and cooled rice: I use brown, but white rice will work here too
Garlic infused olive oil: using garlic infused olive oil rather than just garlic allows this dish to have the depth of flavor that garlic brings to the table, but also remain low FODMAP.
Eggs: an essential for fried rice! Also a good source of protein and many other vitamins and minerals.
Vegetables: I used carrots, broccoli, bell pepper, and zucchini but you can use whatever you have on hand.
Sesame Ginger Sauce: this sauce is the perfect amount of ginger (not TOO gingery for those concerned!) and really makes this dish special.
If you are not sensitive to FODMAPs or completing the elimination diet, or if you don’t have some of these special ingredients on hand you can give this dish a try with things you DO have on hand. Look at the recipe as more of a method and guidelines to follow rather than strict rules.
Food Allergies and Intolerances:
This dish is gluten free and dairy free. It does contain sesame oil and sesame is in the Sesame Ginger Sauce, so if you are allergic to nuts or seeds please be cautious and make adjustments as necessary.
