Whenever making fried rice with brown rice, make sure to have a batch of cooked brown rice that is at least a day old.  This helps in preventing the rice from getting clumped together when cooking as a fried rice dish.

  • 6 eggs, whisked
  • 1.5 cups red onion, diced
  • 1.5 tablespoon garlic, minced

  • 3/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 cups cooked basmati brown rice
  • 6 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup peanuts, chopped


  1. Heat one teaspoon of the oil in a large skillet.  Cook eggs as a thin omelet.  Brown on each side.  Set aside to cool.  When cool, slice into strips.
  2. Heat rest of oil  Cook onions until caramelized.  Add garlic, chili , salt, and pepper.  Cook for another 30 seconds.   Push mixture off to side of pan and add pineapple.  Brown pineapples on each side.
