Garlic Fried Rice

Rice has this amazing power to be transformed and completely reinvented. One possibility is garlic fried rice, which is a beautiful side to your meal and is much more interesting than plain, steamed rice.

This is dish is popular throughout Southeast Asia and is eaten for breakfast in some cases!

For 4-6 servings

3 cups of steamed rice of your choice

8 garlic cloves, minced

½ cup chopped scallions or chives

2 Tbs soy sauce

salt and pepper to taste

oil for frying

In a heated and oiled frying pan, sauté garlic and onions for half a minute, just so that the flavours begin to mature. Add the rice, soy sauce , salt and pepper and sauté for four to six minutes so that the rice infuses with garlic.

*I personally like my fried rice a bit crispy (like a potato chip) and purposefully overcook it. 

Serve as a side with fresh veggies such as bean sprouts and cucumbers, or with your favourite meal.

    Vote no 2. I love the sound of this, a great vegan alternative to egg fried rice, which I miss sometimes! Don't know if I would want it for breakfast but it sounds dee-lish for later in the day!

    Another recipe I'll actually try. I've been thinking about looking for a vegan fried rice recipe for a while now :-)

      Thanks Alice :) I know, it is surprisingly hard to find a fried rice without egg or fish sauce!

        I loved eggs in Chinese recipes..This looks yummy and I am sure if I continue to read these blogs, I will definitely forget my old non-veg favorites pretty soon!
