What are your thoughts on Chinese Food and Weight Watchers? Chinese food can be tough on a diet, right, but this recipe for Fried Rice fits right into my Weight Watchers Program. It is delicious, easy to make, and low in points! What more can you ask for? I have been making fried cauliflower rice for a long time, but with Weight Watchers I can have real rice! Yeah!!! This fried rice is super filling, so it makes a meal all on its own for a meatless Monday meal, but you can also add meat to it if you are so inclined. I have been traveling so I can not update you on my weight loss at this point, but I will after I get home next week. In the meantime, here is this delicious Fried Rice Recipe.
Fried Rice - A Weight Watchers Recipe
Weight Watchers Smartpoints - 4 per 1/2 cup
5 cups water
2 1/2 cups rice
2 Tb olive oil
1 Tb sesame oil
1 container 14.5 oz Trader Joe's Mirepoix (1/2 chopped onion, 3 carrots chopped, 3 stalks celery chopped)
2 tsp minced garlic or 3 cloves minced garlic
8 oz sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce
1/4 cup Trader Ming's General Tsao's Stir Fry Sauce
1/8 cup Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Sauce
3 eggs, beaten
Cook the rice according to the directions on the package. Mine is 5 cups water to 2 1/2 cups of rice.
Heat the olive and sesame oil in a wok or a very deep stir fry pan over medium high heat.
Add the mirepoix to the oil and saute until the onions are translucent.
Next add the garlic and saute for a minute, next add the mushrooms and cook for approximately 5 minutes.
Then add the rice and mix with the vegetables.
Add the tamari sauce, stir fry sauce, and teriyaki sauce and mix well.
Next, make a hole in the center of the pan, moving the rice and vegetables to the edges of the pan, and add the beaten eggs.
Cook just the eggs in the center of the pan just like you would scramble eggs, without the rice in it as much as possible.
Once the eggs are mostly cooked, stir into the rice and vegetable mixture. Add more tamari sauce if needed.
It is ready to serve. You can add some kind of meat if you want, but we eat it like this and it is delicious.
Serves 20 - 1/2 cup servings
