I got a tweet on Friday from Danger K over at Project: Priceless, looking for a good fried rice recipe. We happen to have one. Actually, the Pie has one, which he modified himself from one of our many stir-fry books. We make this one with chicken, but you can leave that out for a vegetarian option. If you want to go vegan, you can leave out the egg as well.
So this is what you need:
Half an onion, diced.
A boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed. Add a splash of soy sauce to that.
An egg, beaten.
Two carrots, peeled and diced.
About one cup peas. These are defrosted frozen ones.
A pinch or two of sliced green onion.
About two cups cooked rice, cold. Preferably a day or two old. The rice needs to be dry and no longer sticky.
In a large frying pan or wok, heat a tablespoon oil with a tablespoon minced garlic on medium heat. Chuck in the onions and cook until they’re translucent.
Toss in the chicken and stir until the chicken is cooked through.
Make a well in the middle and pour in the beaten egg in a thin layer. Allow it to cook through and then break it up with your spatula and mix it in.
Add in all the vegetables and heat through, then add the rice and stir to mix. Splash in some more soy sauce to taste. When everything is heated up to your satisfaction, you can serve it. And it’s as simple as that!
