Fried Rice

Hi everyone!

Today, I will be sharing my recipe on fried rice minus a few ingredients I didn’t have on hand, but still tasted amazing nonetheless! It’s definitely a healthier alternative to take-out fried rice as you can control how much of each ingredient you put into it. You can add chicken, pork, or just simply leave it veggie like how I did. Oh, did I mention it taste even better for leftovers? Let’s get started!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rice
  • Soy sauce
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • Carrots
  • Onion
  • Green bell pepper
  • Red bell pepper
  • Mushroom

Directions:

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and then add 1 cup of rice.
  2. Let the rice cook and drain leftover water if any.
  3. While the rice is cooking, chop the onions, garlic, and ginger.FullSizeRender-24.jpg
  4. Cut the carrots, bell peppers, and mushrooms.FullSizeRender-25.jpg
  5. In a large skillet, add a tablespoon of oil and add the garlic and ginger.FullSizeRender-23.jpg
  6. Let cook for a minute and then add the onion.
  7. Sautee the onion and then add the rest of the vegetables.
  8. Once cooked, set aside.FullSizeRender-32.jpg
  9. In the large skillet, add 4 table spoons of oil and then add the cooked rice.
  10. Let it cook for about 5 minutes making sure the oil covers most of the grains.FullSizeRender-28.jpg
  11. Make room in the center of the skillet and add 2 eggs in the middle.FullSizeRender-29.jpg
  12. Toss around so the eggs become quite scrambled with the rice.
  13. Add the vegetables and soy sauce and cayenne pepper to taste.FullSizeRender-30.jpgFullSizeRender-22.jpg
  14. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  15. Plate and serve!FullSizeRender-27.jpgFullSizeRender-26.jpg

Suggestions, Substitutions, Tips & Tricks:

  • You can add chicken or pork with the veggies.
  • It’s best to use a day old rice, but I wanted to make this last minute; still tasted great.
  • You can add green onions and scallions, I didn’t have any on hand.
