Thai Vegetable & Cashew Fried Rice

Sawadee ka! A Thai inspired vegetable fried rice, with cashews and an omelette side. This dish is reminiscent of sitting by the pool on many a vacation, in the balmy heat of summer.
Traditionally white rice is used, I have substituted with brown rice.

This dish is perfect for leftover rice and is cooked in a matter of minutes.

YOU WILL NEED:

Serves 2

Fried rice

1 cup cooked brown rice
1 garlic clove diced
1 tsp turmeric ground
1 tsp organic virgin coconut oil
1/2 red onion diced
1 small carrot cubed
1 small zucchini cubed
1/4 cup raw cashew nuts (roast for 10 mins in a moderate oven)
2 spring onions sliced
2 tbsp organic tamari sauce
1/2 tsp white pepper ground
pinch of himalayan sea salt

Omelette
 
1tsp vegetable oil
2 lightly beaten eggs
1 spring onion
pinch of himalayan sea salt

Step 1.

Prepare the cooked rice in a bowl. Mix through the tamari sauce and white pepper.
In a wok on a medium heat, fry the onion in the coconut oil for 2 mins.
Add the garlic, turmeric and stir.
Add all of the vegetables and the cashew nuts.
Fry for another 1-2 mins and add the seasoned rice.
Add the spring onions. Sprinkle with sea salt.
Combine well.

Step 2.
