4-5 cups of cooked Brown rice
2 cloves of garlic grated
2 tsp of grated fresh ginger
2-3 Tbs of soy sauce (or more to taste)
1 tsp dried red chili flakes (or to taste)
1 tsp sesame oil
1 Tbs hoisin sauce
1 Tbs of canola oil
1 Tbs of butter or margarine
1 cup grated carrot
1 bunch of scallions sliced
1 medium onion chopped
Optional veggies: peas, zucchini, peppers, chilies, cabbage etc...
Optional garnish: Chopped roasted salted peanuts
Note: If you would like to bump up the protein in the dish you can fry a scrambled egg and add it to the rice.
*Note if you decide to add other vegetables throw it in here but make sure you add little more oil.
Then add your cooked brown rice and mix well with all the seasoned ingredients. I prefer to use cooled or cold rice for best results. So again this fried rice is perfect for using up that leftover rice. Taste for seasoning and add more soy sauce if salt is needed.
