Fried Rice

Charles made some awesome fried rice with the teriyaki chicken a couple of days ago.  I really enjoyed this; it’s one of those dishes that it is easy to eat too much though.  I loved everything about it; the crunch of the water chestnuts, the eggs, the peas; oh so very tasty.

  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 2 Tbs sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced carrot
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 sliced jalapeno
  • 1 – 2 Tbs soy sauce
  • 2 eggs; scrambled and cooked
  • 1/2 can water chestnuts
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • black pepper

Cook rice for 9 – 10 minutes; this will leave the rice slightly undercooked.  Rinse rice well and drain thoroughly; spread rice to dry out while prepping remaining ingredients.  In large skillet heat sesame oil; sauté carrot, celery, onion, jalapeno, and crushed red pepper for 6 – 8 minutes or until veggies are tender.

Add rice, eggs, soy, garlic, peas, water chestnuts and pepper; cook over medium high heat for 5 – 10 minutes.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
