Healthier (!) Bacon Fried Rice

Do you like bacon?

What kind of a question is that.. of course you do!

I'm excited to introduce you to this light(er) and delicious dish that's sure to be a new family favorite! Say hello to Bacon Fried Rice.

Recipe adapted from Food Network
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 
4 slices turkey bacon, crumbled
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 
1 cup organic frozen vegetables, thawed
2 cups cooked long-grain white rice
3 egg whites from large eggs
  1. Place a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add the olive oil and bacon and stir-fry until golden and crisp, about 2 minutes. Add 1/4 teaspoon soy sauce (watch out-the oil will bubble up) and continue to stir-fry until the bacon is glazed, about 30 seconds. Transfer the bacon to a bowl with a slotted spoon. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes to the drippings in the pan and stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the thawed vegetables. Add the rice, the remaining 2 teaspoons soy sauce, the broth and glazed bacon. Toss to heat through.
  2. Push the fried rice to one side of the pan, crack the eggs (whites only) into the other side and scramble until set, about 1 minute. Mix the eggs into the rice. Divide among bowls.

    This recipe is amazing--it seriously tastes like Chinese takeout (just minus all the extra calories)! Enjoy!!
