Recipe Summary


This fried rice-inspired egg scramble flips the script on the classic dish, putting eggs front and center with chewy brown rice folded in throughout each bite. Sautéeing coleslaw mix with soy sauce adds flavorful veggies to the scramble and makes the dish more filling. Ever wonder why fried rice needs leftover—not fresh—rice? It's because chilling the cooked grains allows them to dry out so they don't become mushy, which is key to achieving that classic fried rice texture. Brown rice not only adds nutty flavor here, it is a fiber-rich whole grain swap for white rice.
