Recipe Card | by Kelly Cackin

fried rice
Last week, my soon-to-be husband and I went to a hibachi grill to celebrate our anniversary.  The fried rice was nothing less than amazing!  So, last night, we decided to try to replicate this popular side dish at home!  The ingredients below are exactly what we used; however, feel free to experiment with different rices and vegetables!

Yield: A other way to put it!
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 60 minutes

  • 4 cups of RiceTec rice (or other non-instant rice)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 1/2 bottle of low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil (or other preferred oil)
  • Water

Cook the rice thoroughly in a very large sauce pan or skillet, as directed on the package. While cooking, finely chop 1 large carrot; set aside.  In a separate skillet, scramble the eggs; set aside. Once the rice is cooked, add the carrot, eggs, soy sauce, and oil.  Simmer for at least 10-15 minutes, to allow the flavors to meld together.  Carrots should be slightly crunchy, but not raw.

What We Paired With It:

Teriyaki chicken,  fresh mango, stir-fried yellow squash and broccoli
