Fried Rice

A few weeks ago I was given a wok, and let me tell you... it is my new best friend!  Last night, I made fried rice, and what a difference having the right pan made!  Last time I kept dumping rice out of my biggest pan.  Anyway, I think this was my best fried rice yet, and so of course, I have to share the recipe!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups rice (or, two 6-ounce rice cups)
  • 3 cups water (or, four 6-ounce rice cups)
  • 2 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 3-5 green onions - diced
  • Sliced carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Snow peas
  • Soy sauce to taste
  • Sesame oil to taste



Directions:
  1. In a rice cooker, place your rice and water, and turn on. 
  2. While rice cooks, place cooking oil and crushed/minced garlic in a large pan or wok, and put on med-low heat.
  3. Add carrots, peas, broccoli and green onions - coat with oil, and cook thoroughly to desired tenderness - add a little water if needed to keep from burning.  (To flash steam: add 1/4 cup water to the hot pan and cover.)
  4. Add eggs to the veggies, stirring constantly to scramble the eggs throughout the pan and coat the veggies.
  5. Add salt and sesame seeds - stir. 
  6. Add cooked rice to the veggies/eggs, and mix.
  7. Add soy sauce and sesame oil to taste.
  8. Enjoy!
