Easy Fried Rice
Hi Guys, I am posting this very easy fried rice recipe, because is one of my favorite recipes to cook when I have a few leftovers.
I hope you enjoy it as well!
200g Cooked rice (brown, basmati or any rice you like)
200g vegetables of your preference (Carrot, potato, courgette, broccoli, cherry tomato...)
2 red onions (cut fine slices)
3 cloves garlic (grated)
1 handful roasted nuts (I love cashew)
1 handful seeds (I like pumpkin)
(You can adapt all the ingredients amounts to your taste)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1-2 tbsp soy sauce
Lime or lemon
Cilantro or any herb you like
Salt and pepper
1- Cut all the veggies into thin slices so it will cook faster. Start by roasting them (the hard veggies first, and the soft ones later) in a hot frying pan with 1tbsp sunflower oil, until they get a nice golden color. Add some at the star, it helps to bring out the flavors. If you need, turn the heat to medium after 2 minutes so they can cook evenly. Reserve it for later.
2- In the same pan with some 1tbsp sunflower oil, you can roast the red onions in medium heat for 2 minutes and add the garlic. Put the onions and garlic to one side of the frying pan, and add to the other side of the frying pan 1 tbs sesame oil and the rice.
3- Let everything cook in medium heat till the rice is warm and crispy.
You can lower the heat after a few minutes if you prefer the rice softer.
4- Add cooked veggies, and finish seasoning with salt, pepper, soy sauce, and lemon or lime juice.
5- Serve with the seeds, nuts, chili & cilantro. Et voilà! Enjoy it!
