Fried-rice is not a very popular dish in France. I guess it's because the influence from Asia is not as prevalent as it is in Australia. You can still find fried-rice in France, but be aware we refer to it as "Riz Cantonais" (Cantonese rice).
Since my last trip to Bali, I've starting experiencing more with fried-rice and also with ginger.
This recipe is a fast, simple and reasonably healthy. With this base fried rice recipe, you can whip up all kinds of fried rice variations by adding your own ingredients. But remember not to use too much oil nor soy-sauce.
Ingredients (serve 2)
- 1 cup brown rice
- 3 organic free range eggs
- 3 spring onion, finely sliced
- 1 medium red onion, thinly chopped
- 1/2 cup frozen green peas
- 1 teaspoon of Gourmet Garden garlic paste (or replace with a clove of garlic)
- 3 teaspoon of Gourmet Garden ginger paste (or 3/4 inch grated fresh ginger)
- 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- Cook the brown rice, leave to cool and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours
- Heat a teaspoon of virgin olive oil in a non-stick wok and cook the eggs stirring at all time. Remove from heat just before the eggs reach the scrambled-egg state.Transfer to a bowl.
- Heat another teaspoon of virgin olive oil and cook red onion until golden. Add brown rice and stir through. Add garlic paste and ginger. Cook on high heat for about 3 minutes.
- Stir in chopped spring onions and peas and cook for a further 2 minutes.
- Add soy sauce (for taste and colour), stir and cook for another couple of minutes before serving.
Gourmet Garden Review
We all know that fresh herbs make a big difference to the flavour and quality of a meal. But with all the goings-on during the week it’s hard to find the time to buy or even prepare them. I've started using Gourmet Garden products and I'm very satisfied with their range. Let me tell you why.
Gourmet Garden is an ideal solution for busy cooks who don’t want to lose out on flavour for their everyday cooking. These herbs are organically grown (without the use of artificial pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers) and are simply washed, chopped, blended and packed into tubes to maintain all their fresh taste and nutrition.
