Gluten Free Fried Rice

by - January 16, 2018

One of the hardest things that people that are forced into this diet have to go through is the realization that many of their favorite foods are now off the table. Out goes the ease of ordering off take out menus and you are left feeling like you will never enjoy those kinds of foods again.  Here is one recipe that will make you feel like your old self again.  This fried rice recipe is quick, easy, and so good.  The best part is that it is so much better for you than the take out alternative.

I usually always have onions, carrots, peas and bell peppers on hand but you can really use whatever is in your fridge. It is a great way to clean out the fridge.  If I have leftover rice from dinner the night before this is perfect to make the next day. If I don't, I just cook some rice to use.  I will throw in some meat if I have it too.  Anything is good, chicken, beef, shrimp, fish or even sausage is great in this recipe.
Make sure your soy sauce is gluten free because regular soy sauce is made from wheat but the gluten free alternative tastes exactly the same. There are a few different brands out there that make a gluten free soy sauce and I haven't found a difference in taste among them so just pick up whatever your store carries.
Sometimes this diagnosis can be hard but it gets a whole lot easier with recipes like this.  I especially love to eat this the next day. It makes the perfect lunch and will satisfy those take out cravings.  If you want to see exactly how I made this, check out the video down below.
