Kid-friendly Vegetable Fried Rice | My Little Gourmet

Initially my plan for this week’s post was a recipe for the grill, since my parents got us the awesome gift of a barbecue. I ordered it online about 2 weeks ago while they were visiting and am STILL waiting for it to arrive. So, you guys will have to wait for the planned chicken skewer recipe and instead, settle for this yummy fried rice.

This is Arik’s favorite way to eat rice and to be honest, it’s mine as well. I tend to just make a big batch of brown rice at the beginning of the week and use if for various things, including this recipe. You can use whatever veggies your kids prefer or what you happen to have on hand. If there are toddlers eating this, then be sure to chop up the vegetables quite small (especially the carrots) and make sure they are soft before serving. I usually serve this with this sweet broiled salmon, but if you want to make this a main course you could add some grilled chicken breast or even some shrimp on top.

Well, keep your fingers crossed that this grill arrives soon so I can get to barbecuing before this summer is over!

  1. Yum! I am totally making this tonight. 😀

  2. Fried rice is awesome, you can put just about anything and everything in it. I remember using a lot of leftover veggies and meats to make fried rice 🙂

  3. Fried rice is one of those things I find hard to stop shoveling into my mouth. : ) So good. I started making fried rice at home recently. We love it with some curry powder. Just love that you can add so many different things in it…the egg is one of my favorite parts.

  4. A perfect way to sneak in the veggies for the little one! Haha I must try this trick on my youngest baby brother. Using brown rice would give a very nourishing feel to this dish 🙂
