Here's a super simple recipe for you: Japanese Garlic Fried Rice.
You can have it as a tasty side dish paired with other Japanese or Asian-flavoured dishes or as a main course.
In the recipe below, we'll cook rice using a technique similar to that used for sushi. Then we'll stir-fry it in a rich garlic base with tasty Japanesey ingredients, like shiitake mushrooms and edamame beans. For extra garlicky flavour, we'll top the dish with thin slices of garlic crisped to perfection.
We didn't use any butter in the stir-fry, so the recipe is fully vegan. As such, it is more suitable for a weight-loss diet, thanks to the lower fat content and a higher amount of fibres from the extra veggies.
The mushrooms and the beans add in a good amount of proteins, making this dish more nourishing than the traditional plain garlic rice. That's why if you make a bit more, you can have this as a main course.
In fact, one full bowl gives you 21% RDI for carbs, 30% RDI for fibres, and 38% RDI for proteins. Add a piece of fruit, and you've got a solid meal right there!
