Ginger Cashew Vegetable Fried Rice

vegetable fried rice

This recipe is a much healthier alternative to typical Asian-style takeaway, often higher in white rice than vegetable content. The vegetables in this dish are packed with minerals and other nutrients. The seeds not only add crunch but they also contain magnesium and zinc, while ginger is great for digestion. Brown rice provides a good source of dietary fibre and additional minerals.
