This Easy Broccoli Fried “Rice” is perfect for a side dish or main meal!


  • 56 cups chopped broccoli (you can use florets and stems)
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 small red pepper, thinly sliced and chopped into 1 inch pieces

  1. Add the broccoli to a food processor and blend until it resembles rice, 10-20 seconds.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add sesame oil, red pepper, carrots and peas.  Cook veggies until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Next, add in the riced broccoli, garlic, ginger and soy sauce.  Mix everything together and then smash the mixture down with a spatula.  Let broccoli “rice” cook for about 5 minutes, flip and repeat.
