This easy broccoli fried rice is made with hearty brown rice and plenty of vegetables for a tasty meatless meal! This recipe comes together in just 15 minutes thanks to quick-cooking rice!

Every time we get Chinese food, I cross my fingers that my veggie stir fry will be loaded with broccoli. In my opinion, it’s the best of the fried rice vegetables. Maybe it’s because those little veggie-trees soak up more of the sauce or maybe it’s because I love their texture, but whatever the reason, they’re my favorite. So today, I’m teaming up with Minute Rice to bring you an easy dinner recipe that only takes a few minutes to put together!

How to Make Broccoli Fried Rice

This recipe comes together really quickly if you use Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. All you have to do is microwave it for a minute and you’re ready to go! Add in a few other simple ingredients and you’ve got yourself dinner! It’s kind of perfect, especially if you’re not so great with portion control like me. If you don’t have Minute Ready to Serve Rice, you can use regular brown rice. It’s best if you can let the rice cool before starting the stir fry. You’ll end up with a better texture! Once your rice is ready, you simply stir fry the rice, add the egg, and then add the vegetables!

If you’re a meat-eater, you could certainly throw some beef or shrimp in here. If I had tempeh in my fridge I would have tossed some of that in there but this hit the spot!
