This is an easy recipe to make, and very tasty. You can add other items to it as well, if you like, such as tofu, etc.
1 c. long-grain rice (Jasmine rice is WONDERFUL!)
2 c. water
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 lg. onion, chopped
1 lg. green pepper, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1 carton frozen peas & carrots (thawed)
2 eggs – scrambled & chopped fine (optional)
soy sauce – to taste (Golden Mountain from Thailand is the least salty tasting we’ve used – and MUCH, MUCH better than domestic brands [they’re bitter!!!])
white pepper – to taste
Prepare 1 c. rice & 2 c. water in rice steamer or microwave.
In wok, heat oil. Add onion, green onion & garlic. Saute lightly. Add cooked rice, green pepper, peas & carrots. Toss together, frying lightly. Add soy sauce & white pepper to taste. Add scrambled eggs last, heat through.
Serve & enjoy!
VARIATION: Add veggie hamburger or turkey crumbles (can get really good ones from Dixie Diner, which I have a link to on the side in the links section) to this. If you do, be sure to add a bit of Hoisin sauce. It will give it a slightly sweet flavor, but it is a nice enhancement. Add veggie chik, any number of additions to make it your own.
