Fiddlehead Fried Rice

Love Life and Lollipops- Fiddlehead Fried Brown Rice

Often at times I'm wanting a home cooked meal (too often in this pregnancy I've been ordering in Thai food for my fam), but don't have the energy I used to for slaving in the kitchen (one of my favorite passtimes;)).  Fried rice makes a superperfect centerpiece to our family dinners on nights like those and it's made even easier with goodies from my CSA box and leftover brown rice.

One night last week I threw together a fiddlehead fried rice along with some kabocha squash and Field Roast sausage.  Everything was easy and quick and made for a filling, delicious summer dinner.

It was our first taste of fiddleheads and they were crispy and yummy and going to be a new addition to our early summer table for sure!

Here's the recipe for the rice:


A large bunch of fiddleheads trimmed as neccessary

Half head of cabbage sliced thinly

Leftover (or any cooked brown rice)

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon Earth Balance

Shoyu to taste

  1. In a large saute pan heat up the olive oil and saute the fiddle heads for 2-3 minutes to get them started cooking.
  2. Add the cabbage and cook together until the cabbage is soft, about 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add the rice to the pan along with the earth balance and the shoyu.
  4. Mix and cook through until the rice is hot (at least 5 minutes).
  5. Serve immediately!

This vegan friend brown rice is fresh and delicious and supereasy to make.
