Vegetable Fried Rice

  • 3 cups already cooked rice
  • 1/2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbs Soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp roasted red chili paste
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups diced veggies (I like carrots, bell peppers, green peas, and water chestnuts)
  1. Heat 1 tsp vegetable oil in a large saute pan over medium heat.  Scramble egg, add to pan, and cook until no longer wet.  Set aside in a bowl.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in the same pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Add your choice of vegetables (minus frozen peas if you're using them) and saute until 3-4 minutes, until cooked but still crisp.
  4. Add garlic, 1 Tbs soy sauce, and chili paste.  Stir until chili paste is incorporated
  5. Add rice and additional soy sauce. Stir fry until rice become a shade of brown.
  6. Add the cooked egg and green peas.
  • Meat or tofu can be added. I recommend using already cooked beef, shrimp, or chicken, or browning the tofu separate. Add the meat with the egg and peas.
  • The amount of soy sauce is completely up to you. My soy sauce is aged to salty ridiculousness so I usually use less than 2 Tbs.  If you like it strong, use more than 2 Tbs.
