Although it seems like a lot of steps, each takes just moments, and none really require your attention (other than the egg).
Toss a 10-ounce bag of brown rice into the microwave. While that steams, crack one egg into a skillet and scramble on low. Meanwhile, chop a few scallions. Once the rice is done, steam some frozen peas in the microwave. Toss everything together along with some slivered almonds and a dash of gluten-free soy sauce and you’ve got yourself an Asian-inspired side dish that’s on the table faster than you (or your honey) can grill a steak.
