Breakfast Fried Rice
- 4 large egg whites
- ¼ cup cooked brown rice (certified gluten-free if necessary)
- ¼ teaspoon chili-garlic sauce (certified gluten-free if necessary)
- 1 tablespoon thinly sliced green onion tops
- Salt and pepper, to taste
In a small bowl, whisk the egg whites until they are slightly frothy.
Place a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. When warm, lightly mist the pan with cooking spray, and pour the egg whites into the pan. Scramble the whites until almost set, about 3–5 minutes.
Stir in the rice, chili-garlic sauce and green onion. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1–2 minutes, or until the eggs are completely cooked. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
