House Special Fried Rice
House Special Fried Rice is the perfect one-pot dish' made with a combo of frozen brown rice and cauliflower rice and loaded with chicken, shrimp, steak, and eggs for mega protein.
House Special Fried Rice
Fried rice is one of my favorite guilty pleasures! I love it so much and crave it frequently. If we order it at a Chinese restaurant, we usually get the house special fried rice made with beef, shrimp, pork and chicken. There's never enough
protein and vegetables in the dish we order to make it a main dish, so I set out to make it myself with a healthier twist. This has 35 grams of protein per serving, plus the cauliflower adds a healthy dose of veggies.

Fried Rice Ingredients:
My version uses frozen brown rice (I love Trader Joe's), which is so convenient and even sneaks in some cauliflower rice for added veggies that no one can pick out. And good news ' my cauliflower-adverse husband never realized. It's also loaded with shrimp, steak, and chicken, plus egg for protein.
Fried Rice Sauce:
I use soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil as the house fried rice sauce. You can serve the rice with sriracha if you prefer it spicy. This dish is also flavored with scallions, fresh ginger, and garlic.
- If you don't have frozen rice, you can cook your own. Thoroughly refrigerate it before making the fried rice ' cold rice fries better than warm rice.
- Use tamari instead of soy sauce to make the fried rice gluten-free.
- If you don't want to use all three proteins, skip one and double up on another.
- Add in some frozen peas for an extra veggie.
- Top with sriracha to add some heat.
