Vegetable Fried Rice with Sesame Seeds
This is one of my fiance’s favorites, especially when getting home late from work and wanting something to snack on. First, you want to start off making your white rice just like you normally would, directions on the bag. I believe it’s 2 cups water to 1 cup rice, with a little oil or butter thrown in the water.
Adjust the recipe according to how much you’re making. This recipe will assume you used 1 cup of dry rice and 2 cups water. This will serve two.
Next, if you have a large griddle I would recommend using this, if not a frying pan will work just fine. Get your temperature to 300°, put down about 1.5-2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add 3-4 tablespoons of butter.
Crack open an egg and let this start to cook next to your oil/butter combo.
Spoon on all the rice onto the oil and butter.
Add your vegetables on top of the rice. I used about half a can of mixed vegetables. You want at least peas and carrots, everything else is a bonus! I believe what I used had peas, carrots, green beans, lima beans, corn, celery, and potatoes. I’ve also used frozen Asian vegetables, you don’t need to thaw these, you can just toss right in.
Chop up your egg.
Top with some Soy sauce.
Mix everything together.
Let this cook for about 20 minutes, trying to lay everything out as much as possible to get that crisp from the pan.
Every 5 minutes or so, mix together and spread out again to keep even, adding Soy sauce to taste.
Scoop up into bowls, top with sesame seeds and serve!
1 cup uncooked white rice
2 cups water
2 tbps olive oil
4 tbps butter
Soy sauce (to taste)
1/2 can mixed vegetables
Another one of my favorites. When I end up leaving my griddle out I make this at least 2-3 times a month. It’s a “quick” (hour to hour and a half) delicious light meal, or addition to a great chicken, steak, or seafood.
Want to make this a full meal? Simple slice up a chicken breast, thin steak, shrimp, salmon or any other protein, lay it out in some butter, add Soy sauce and toss in!
