Some of my all-time favorite “fast foods” (and I mean “fast foods” as in “fast” cooking) is an all too versatile and comforting bowl of fried rice. Fried rice is a quick and delicious way to transform leftovers into something delicious. The best thing about creating a steamy bowl of fried rice is you can be creative by adding an abundant of ingredients, leftovers, or keep it simply traditional with egg, scallion, garlic and soy sauce. My cooking “Kainese” style recipes replaces the traditional gluten white rice with a fibrous sprouted brown rice which is ideal when you’re actively living a healthy lifestyle. I actually like the brown rice better for this dish because of the nutty flavor of the short grains. Enhance with the warmth and gentle sweetness of the roasted garlic, the tang of the pickled ginger along with the umami flavor of the wok roasted and tossed shiitake mushrooms. BAM! Dynamic flavor!
