Do you ever make too much rice and end up throwing it out? Please don’t! Making home made fried rice is so much healthier than a lot of the greasy stuff you get in restaurants and it is easy and delicious. Try this one on for size and add meat or tofu to make a full protein filled meal, although the eggs in this dish can suffice.
Chinese Fried Rice:
4 cups leftover cooked white rice
4 scallions, chopped into pea sized pieces
2 scrambled eggs set aside in a bowl
2 cloves garlic minced
one tsp fresh, minced ginger
one TBS sesame oil
one TBS soy sauce
In a medium sized non-stick frying pan over medium heat, heat up the sesame oil
Add in the chopped scallions, ginger and garlic and stir until they are wilted
Push the scallions, ginger and garlic to one size of the pan and add in the beaten eggs to the other end of the pan and scramble until cooked through
Add in the rice and stir to combine
Add in the soy sauce and stir
optional : add in a few ounces of cooked chicken, shrimp, tofu , nuts or any other protein and stir until combined
Serve hot
