Flavor Infusion

Instead of frying the rice in a pan with oil, the key to incorporating flavor here is to infuse the rice with your choice of broth and vegetables. Keep it as is, with chicken broth, or sub in Asian-style broth for more flavor. You can also make this dish completely vegetarian with vegetable broth.

When it comes to the vegetables, use fresh carrots and peas or sub in a convenient frozen version of both. If you’re missing some of those classic flavors, add a tablespoon of low-sodium soy sauce and sesame oil at the end and stir well.
