Stir-Fried Rice

On a nice Saturday morning, you wake up late, when the sun is so high in the sky and you feel unbelievably hungry. You open the fridge to see what good food you could have and realize there’s just nothing… You see a few eggs left, some mushrooms, a cucumber and some leftover plain rice from the night before. You open the freezer and see a little bit of frozen Edamame and corn. Then it all clicks in your head, and you know exactly what you should make for a comforting quick and easy brunch: STIR-FRIED RICE! 😉

Ingredients

  • Rice
  • Minced garlic
  • Chopped cucumber
  • Chopped mushrooms
  • Spring onion
  • 3 eggs
  • Frozen Edamame beans
  • Frozen corn
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil
  • Soy sauce

Instructions

  • Fill a small pot of water and wait till it boils
  • Add the frozen Edamame beans with some salt and cook for 3-4 minutes
  • When done, let it cool a bit, then remove the beans from their pods(shells) and keep them in a bowl
  • Lightly beat the eggs with salt and pepper in a bowl
  • Heat your wok and add 2 tablespoons of oil, and when hot enough, pour the egg in to make an omelette
  • Tear the omelette with your spatula into small pieces and remove from wok
  • Turn the heat up on the stove; add oil again and fry your garlic until lightly brown (garlic is optional)
  • Toss the frozen corn, mushrooms, cucumber in the wok and stir fry for a few minutes
  • Add some salt and pepper
  • Add the cooked rice, preferably from the night before and mix everything thoroughly together with some soy sauce until all ingredients and rice are well blended
  • Add the omelette egg back into the pan. Mix again and spread some minced spring onions on the rice.

Tadaaaaaaaaaaa! 😀

How to make good rice:
Bring 2 1/4 cups water to boil in medium saucepan. Add rice and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until water is absorbed, for about 20 minutes.
It’s best to use rice that was made the day/night before because freshly cooked rice would be too hot, soft and sticky… unless you like your stir-fried rice mushy 😛
