Fried Rice

The recipe I used was from the Looneyspoons cookbook. I can't find it online anywhere, but I'm off today so you're lucky enough to get it typed:

The Rice is Right (Fried Rice)

Original recipe:

1/2 cup eggs (2)

1/2 tsp sesame oil

1 tsp canola oil

1 c chopped onions

3 cloves garlic, minced

3/4 c each chopped carrots and celery

1/2 c chopped green onions

1 tsp grated ginger root

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tbsp honey

4 cups cooked brown rice

1. Whisk eggs and sesame oil. Heat olive oil in large nonstick skillet or wok. Pour in eggs, cook until set (about 3 min). Remove from pan and cut into bite-size pieces.

2. Spray skillet with a little more oil/nonstick spray. Add onions, garlic, carrots, celery, green onions, and ginger. Stir fry over medium heat for about 5 min, until veggies are softened. Add soy sauce, honey, egg, rice. Mix well, cook 2-3 min until heated through.

Modifications I made last time:

Subbed chicken for egg (about 2 breasts, we like it chickeny)

Used half white/half brown rice

Used only carrots and snow peas, as DH doesn't like onions, celery, or green onions. I do add a lot of onion powder to replace the flavour.

It's a yummy, really easy recipe.
