Egg Fried Rice...with my special ingredient
Day old brown rice
1/2 Medium onion, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, chopped
1 cup of frozen organic peas (purchased at Costco)
Poultry Seasoning (secret)
celery salt (secret)
low sodium fish sauce
fresh ground pepper and salt to taste
2 tablespoons of I can't believe its not butter =D or regular butter
Here is a little tip to mincing garlic. Take your garlic clove and turn your cutting knife to its side and lay on top of the clove. Press firmly with the palm of your hand to squish it or even pound it with the palm of your hand. This helps to take the peel right off the clove and easier to slice and then mince.
In a skillet add your butter, onions, garlic and carrots and saute them until soft and tender.
Doesn't it smell like Thanksgiving in here? =D
when its cooked tender go ahead and add your brown rice and frozen peas. It is important to use at least day old rice when making fried rice instead of freshly made rice. Otherwise, your friend rice will be mushy. We are then going to add about 2 teaspoons of low sodium soy sauce. I don't really measure so this is approximate ;p
Then add a couple teaspoons of fish sauce, a dash of celery salt, salt and freshly ground pepper. Then you will want to drizzle olive oil all over the rice.
I sprinkle the poultry seasoning in...I am guessing its about a teaspoon.
Lastly, push the fried rice to the side, add some olive oil on the pan and crack two eggs.
Use a wooden spatula and mix beating the egg...let cook for a minute and then go ahead and mix it all in with your friend rice and cook through. Its now ready for you tummy!
