I am married to my college sweetheart, and a mother to two beautiful daughters. I'm an artist, fitness fanatic and homemaker. These are my collection of confessions, recipes, thoughts, projects and more!
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!
1 1/2 cups rice (or, two 6-ounce rice cups)
3 cups water (or, four 6-ounce rice cups)
2 Tbsp cooking oil
2-3 garlic cloves
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
3-5 green onions - diced
Soy sauce to taste
Sesame oil to taste
In a rice cooker, place your rice and water, and turn on.
While rice cooks, place cooking oil and crushed/minced garlic in a large pan or wok, and put on med-low heat.
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.)
Add eggs to the veggies, stirring constantly to scramble the eggs throughout the pan and coat the veggies.
