Asian Fried Rice recipe, step by step
Today, I decided to cook a meal with my farm's organically grown micro-greens. (Visit out web site for more info on these greens: www.wishfulacresfarm.com). Specifically, I used the sweet pea greens. Here is the recipe & pictures!
Asian Fried Rice with Sweet Pea Greens
- 4 cups cooked rice (I always make a big batch of baked rice when I have the oven going, just so I have leftover rice on hand for fried rice).
- 2 cups chopped sweet pea greens
- 2 cloves garlic
- 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce (more or less to taste, however you prefer it)
- 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes, optional, if you like it spicy
Chop the garlic. Sauté over medium low heat for a minute or two, in a couple tablespoons of canola oil. Chop the sweet pea greens into bite-size pieces, them add them to the pan with the garlic. Cook, stirring frequently to prevent the food from burning. Once the greens & garlic are tender, remove them from the pan and into a plate or bowl. Return the pan to the stove on low heat. Add another tablespoon of oil to the pan.
Next, cook the eggs. Crack them into a bowl. Add a splash of milk if desired. With a fork, beat the eggs. Then pour the eggs into the pan & scramble them. When the eggs are cooked through, remove them to the plate or bowl alongside the cooked pea greens.
Again, return the pan to the stove over medium low heat & add another splash of oil. Then pour the cooked rice into the pan. Stir the rice, and then add the soy sauce (however much you like, taste it as you cook), and if you want it spicy also add the red pepper flake now. Keep stirring & mixing until the rice is warmed through. Turn off the heat. Stir the cooked pea greens & scrambled eggs back in and blend with the rice.
If desired, garnish with raw chopped pea greens. And there you have it! Delicious. Pictures below. Enjoy!
