Plain and simple fried rice

    30 min

    This is my version of fried rice. I just use rice, soy sauce, egg, ginger and spring onions. You can add leftover chicken if you have it.

    Yummy! I changed this up a bit to make it a little more healthy. I used brown rice, added peas and diced carrots, and I used low sodium soy sauce. I sauteed the whites from the green onions with the peas and carrots while my rice was cooking. I then added the rice to the veggies with about 1/4 cup soy sauce. In a small skillet, I scrambled the 2 eggs and added to the rice with some ground ginger (I didn't have fresh) and the greens from the onions. Whole thing took about 10 mintues to make and it turned out pretty good. Brown rice made it a little too nutty, so next time I'll stick with white rice. Thanks for the recipe!  -  27 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is good...don't really think it tastes too much like the stuff you get in take out....but still good. You do need to make sure that you add the fresh ginger because without is just too plain. Thanks for the post.  -  14 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
