Better Than Take Out Fried Rice
One of the things I learned about myself this summer is I love quiet, unhurried moments. That should be a no-brainer idea but I’ve been a self-driven workaholic for so long that I guess I kind of…sort of…yup: I forgot that. But the funny thing is, even while I’ve been more relaxed and less stressed this summer, I still tend toward wanting to do the dailies the quick and easy way (with excellence, of course!) so I can move on to the next something. Sigh. Some things don’t change!
My propensity for speed means weeknight meals that are quick, simple and delicious—like this easy fried rice recipe—get a gold star from me.
Burnbrae Farms has gotten a whole page of my gold stars. I love the taste of their quality eggs anyway and now that all I have to do is shake and pour their Egg Creations when I want quick and easy…well, I shake and pour.
Egg Creations are real eggs, with no artificial flavors or preservatives. There’s no cracking, whisking or mess—just shake and pour. Real eggs, real quick, real versatile, real good!
Now if I could just find such a quick and easy way to clean house…
- 3 cups cooked jasmine rice
- 1 T vegetable oil
- ¼ large Vidalia onion, chopped
- 2 gloves of minced garlic
- 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
- ½ cup of Egg Creations
- ½ t sesame oil
- 3 T soy sauce
- green onions
- cilantro (optional)
- In a large skillet or wok, preheat oil over medium heat and add onion and garlic. Cook until onions are soft, about 2-3 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep the garlic from burning.
- Add peas and carrots and cook until partially thawed, 1-2 minutes.
- Turn the heat up to medium high and add cooked rice. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until rice is nice and hot and starts to brown. Reduce heat and push rice to the sides of the pan, making a hole for the eggs.
- Crack the eggs into the middle of the pan and scramble. Once eggs are cooked, stir them into the rice.
- Mix soy sauce and sesame oil together and pour over rice. Stir until rice is evenly coated with sauce.
- Top with chopped green onions and cilantro.
