Baked Fried Brown Rice

ingredients:

  • 4 c. cold leftover brown rice
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 c. pineapple chunks (I used fresh, but I'm sure canned would be fine)
  • 1 c. frozen edamame, thawed
  • 1/2 c. raw cashew pieces
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted (peanut, vegetable, or canola oil would work too)
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. sriracha (more for spicier fried rice, less if you like it milder)
  • Oil mister or cooking spray

instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Combine rice, green onions, pineapple, edamame, and cashews in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, soy sauce, and sriracha. Pour oil mixture over rice mixture and stir until well-combined.
  3. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with oil or cooking spray. Pour rice onto sheet in an even layer. Bake for 45-60 minutes, stirring about every 20 minutes, or until rice is dry and just beginning to get crispy. Serve with additional soy sauce and sriracha, if desired.

notes:

The rice I used for this was 2 days old.
