Egg fried rice
Did you also see new channels in your feed during the lockdown that you never thought you would be interested in?
For me it was "Uncle Roger" and after seeing his video of roasting Jamie Oliver, I wanted to make egg fried rice. :D
After yesterday I succeeded quite well with the recipe for the "scrambled eggs", I was finally able to make it.
Duration: 15 minutes
Makes 2 servings
400g rice from the day before
3 cloves of garlic
1 red chilli
2 spring onions
Some peanut oil (or another easily heatable oil)
50g frozen peas
I pre-fried the "scrambled eggs" in a separate pan and then set them aside. If this is too time-consuming for you, you can of course also make scrambled eggs out of tofu and use that for it.
Then all the ingredients are cut, the shallot / onion, chilli and garlic in fine pieces. The spring onions in rings. I would generally put together all the ingredients that are needed, especially if you are using a wok and everything has to go very quickly later. The rice should be chilled if possible from the day before or at least completely. This will prevent it from becoming mushy in the pan later.
Then the wok, or a coated pan if you don't have one, is heated strongly.
Then add about 2 tablespoons of oil to the wok and as soon as it is hot, the shallot and garlic can be fried in it until they smell really nice.
Then the rice is added and seared briefly. Then add some soy sauce, I guess 2 tablespoons, and mix everything well. Then the peas and the "egg" are added and are mixed in and fried.
When the rice is almost ready, add a pinch of MSG, the spring onions and the chilli too. Mix in a dash of sesame oil and the whole thing is done.
Just serve and garnish with a few extra spring onions.
If you've read this far, you might have noticed that I'm not running any adds, to improve your reading experience and because I deeply believe, that vegan recipes should be accesible to anyone.
But if you want to invite me on a virtual cup of fairtrade coffee via my PayPal.Me Link, I wouldn't say no. It would mean the world to me and helps me to keep buying ingredients for even more recipes. Thank you for cooking something vegan. 💜
