Fried Rice is a absolute favorite in my house! I personally dont care for fried foods but I have learned a healthier alternative that satifies the craving! It is very simple to make but requires a two day prep!
Steam your rice the day prior to cooking it! This is sworn to be the ultimate key of getting the rice perfect. I would even suggest adding spices at this time also. Rice will need to be refrigerated over night.
Once your rice has been prepped to be fried to the gawwwwds please wash all of your fresh ingredients with cool water.
Ingredients are so simple!
Fried Rice Spice
Green bell pepper and carrot/ pea mix are great optional adds!
Once all fresh ingredients are clean. Chop or dice for cooking.
Use the largest skillet you have and add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to heat. Once nice and hot add the rice and add spice if this hasn’t been done so. Add fresh ingredients at this time. Occasionally flip and turn the rice using a spatula. Let it fry for a minute or two before flipping while adding shakes of soy. If needed add light oil drops. How fried the rice should be is preferable.
Once rice is completely browned add sesame oil and stir. You don’t want to cook the rice in sesame oil from my experience and trying different recipes. It’s a great flavoùr addition!
Add soy , sweet and sour , and or red pepper! Enjoy!
