I recently had a craving for some ham fried rice. I personally do not like ham so I made fried rice instead. I have tried many different recipes and never found that one! So I decided to mixed a couple of different recipes together to create this dish. I think it turned out pretty well and I will give it another try down the road.
Also when I was looking at recipes I read that you should use cold rice or leftover rice to make fried rice. I tried it this time and think it works a lot better when chilled.
1 cup vegetables- I used fresh carrots
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 yellow onion-chopped
1/4 soy sauce
2 cups cooked rice-chilled
2 green onions- chopped
1 tsp Sesame oil
I cooked the rice ahead of time and put into the refrigerator. Next add sesame oil into a pan and add white onion, garlic and veggies. Cook until tender. While the veggies are cooking beat the eggs together in a separate bowl. When veggies are done slide to the side of the pan and add egg and cook until no longer runny. Add in rice and soy sauce and stir together. Then add in green onion. Serve when warmed through.
Thought the rice was kind of bland, so next time I think I would add a little seasoning salt. I only added about 1.5 cups of rice and mixed in the soy sauce then added the rest…I like the look of discolored rice..Weird I know! Might even add some chicken next time.
