Makes 6 to 8 servings

Recreating the fried rice from Chinese restaurants may sound like a good idea—until you realize all of the ingredients in the sauce! This simple fried rice recipe will satisfy any Chinese-food craving, without all of the unhealthful extras.


1 large onion, cut in thin half-moons
2 carrots, cut in thin, short sticks
2 celery stalks, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1/2 cup Vegetable Broth
4 cups cooked brown rice
2-4 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 can sliced water chestnuts, drained (optional)
4 green onions, chopped

In a saucepan, combine onion, carrots, celery, and broth. Bring to a boil and cook 3 minutes. Remove from heat and drain vegetables. Vegetables will be crisp and just tender.Heat a large skillet or wok. Add vegetables. Cook and stir a few minutes over medium-high heat, then add rice. Mix well. Add soy sauce and water chestnuts, if using. Add green onions. Serve hot.
