30 minute broccoli fried rice with turmeric-tahini sauce revamps a takeout classic with an extra dose of veggies for a healthy, one-pan meal.
  • 3 Tbsp. lower-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 small head broccoli, stemmed and chopped into florets
  • 1 bunch scallions, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 large eggs, whisked
  • ½ cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice*
  • **Turmeric-Tahini Sauce**
  • 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. tahini (such as Soom)
  • ¾ tsp. ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • Optional garnish: toasted sesame seeds, thinly sliced green onion, basil
  1. Combine soy sauce, garlic, and sugar in a bowl; stir a whisk and set aside.
  2. Next, heat 1 Tbsp. of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add broccoli; cover and cook 5 minutes, uncovering occasionally to stir. Add green onion and season with a pinch of salt; cook 1 more minute, uncovered; transfer veggies to a bowl.
  3. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in pan. Pour in whisked eggs and cook, stirring constantly, with a rubber spatula for 30 to 45 seconds, until just cooked through.
  4. Add rice and soy sauce mixture; toss to combine. Cook, undisturbed, until rice is slightly crisped on one side, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Return broccoli and green onion to pan, and stir in edamame. Toss well to combine; remove from heat.
  6. Next, prepare turmeric-tahini sauce by combining tahini, vinegar, turmeric, sugar, sesame oil, and salt in a bowl; stir with a whisk. Gradually whisk in up to 2½ Tbsp. warm water to reach desired consistency.
  7. Divide fried rice evenly into each of 4 bowls and drizzle with turmeric-tahini sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds and additional green onion or fresh basil, if desired.
Use packages of precooked brown rice (for example, Uncle Ben's) for convenience
