This quick and delicious Mushroom Fried Rice is a perfect meal for busy weeknights.
Good Morning everyone. It’s Foodie Mama’s Day. This month, Amanda from The Chunky Chef chose an ingredient. She picked up Mushrooms. So today Foodie Mamas are here with 9 delicious recipes in which Mushrooms are the main ingredient.
I planned to share the recipe for Mushroom Fried Rice, which I usually make for my family. It is a kind of Indo- Chinese fusion cuisine which my family enjoys. In the previous post, I had shared the recipe Stir-Fry Noodles. This fried rice can go really well with those noodles.
In the following recipe, I have used mushrooms as the main ingredient, along with peppers, onions, and carrots. I have flavored this with some ginger- garlic and my own version of fried rice sauce. The main ingredient that gives this rice an authentic Chinese flavor is the use of Stir Fry oil, which I luckily discovered during one my trips to the grocery store. This oil is infused with garlic – ginger and sesame seeds. When it heats up, it gives out a delicious aroma.
Mushrooms are one of the healthiest vegetables. It has nutrients close to the ones found in meats, beans, and grains. They are a good source of copper, selenium, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, potassium, protein, folate and more. They support the immune system, as well have various anti inflammatory, anti cancer, antioxidants, and cardiovascular benefits.
With so many benefits of this beautiful vegetable, using these on the regular basis for your family’s meal is a great idea. When I initially introduced my daughter to mushrooms, she absolutely hated them. It was something about the texture of the cooked mushroom, which she didn’t like. But as days and months passed, she got used to it, and now she has them without any fuss.
Try this Mushroom Fried Rice soon for your family. It is quick and a great meat-free option.
