as i was making it for dinner tonight i thought i would share the recipe.
its so not fried rice but dont tell my kids that. they love it!
and its something that has morphed into the rice i make today. ive been making it forever. since i was at uni and it would feed a house full for a few days and was cheap as chips to make.
i pack it with veg that my kids eat willingly under the its fried rice name.
u will need
2 cups uncooked jasmine rice
1 head broccoli
1 large onion
peas and corn (frozen is fine)
4 or 5 mushrooms
sesame seeds/cashew nuts
olive oil and seasme seed oil
cook the rice in the microwave, on the stove or in a rice cooker using absorption method. and set aside. no need to chill it, so u can cook the rice as u prepare everything else.
in a wok or large frying pan add a splash of olive oil and the seasme seed oil. cook a wedge cut onion. add meat if using meat. and cook until meat is cooked. add chopped vegies. cook for a few minutes.
add to the wok 1 or 2 tablespoons of the hoisin sauce. plus a tablespoon (or a good splash we dont measure) of soy sauce. i also add a little bit of water...couple of tablespoons at this point and then cover and let it simmer away until the veg is cooked, but not totally soft.
push the veg aside, crack the eggs into the wok and cook. break them apart and mix in with the veg.
add in the rice now and mix it all around. sprinkle with seasme seeds/cashew nuts.
serve with sweet chili sauce
