Our Veggie Fried Rice with Brown Rice is exactly what you need for your next meatless Monday lunch or dinner! This vegetarian version of a classic Chicken Fried Rice is simple to make and delicious. The recipe calls for your choice of frozen vegetables but it can also be a great opportunity to clean out the vegetables in your fridge.
