Follow directions on the rice package, we like using a rice cooker, it is quick and very easy.
Add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and the sesame oil into a large skillet along with a dash of cayenne pepper. Over medium heat, add the onion & ginger and cook several minutes until the onions are translucent (3 to 4 minutes). Then add the water chestnuts, celery, mushrooms and cook and sauté for another few minutes. Continuing cooking until the vegetables soften (another 3 – 4 mins.)
Over high heat, add in the rice and cook for several minutes stirring regularly to make sure it doesn’t burn! After a minute, add in 1 tablespoon of soy sauce substitute. Continue cooking on high heat, add in pepper to taste.
If using eggs: Add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil into a different skillet on medium heat and add in the 2 whisked eggs. Gently stir the eggs as if you’re making a scramble, but make sure the eggs don’t clump together too much then add to rice, add green onions or chives, stir in and serve.
