Thai Style Vegetarian Satay Fried Rice With Egg

If you saw The Healthy Mummy’s Rhian cook this on Channel Ten’s Studio 10, you’ll know how quick this healthy recipe is to make. This delicious recipe comes straight from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and is one of our favourites here at Healthy Mummy HQ.

Some satay recipes are high in salt and sugar, but making it yourself means you can keep everything in check.

We love that you can use good old fashioned peanut butter to create such a healthy dish to rival the Thai take away.

Satay Fried Rice

The best part is, peanut butter actually has belly-blasting properties, as it’s a good source of niacin, which helps prevent belly bloating. Choose a natural butter with no salt or sugar, just 100 per cent peanuts.

If you’re having trouble deciding which peanut butter is best then read this post on which peanut butters are worth going nuts about and which are not.

Keep it vegetarian if you like, or add some lean bacon or mince before you cook the vegetables.
