My Mother’s Chinese Rice

IMG_5877This is a dish I remember eating when I was younger.  My mother would make it from time to time.  She was a fantastic cook and for her generation… when there weren’t all these cooking shows on TV, or there was no internet, she found different ways to discover new recipes.  She liked to cook different things and was always scouring new recipes from cookbooks, newspapers, magazines, friends and taking cooking classes.  I don’t know where this recipe came from but it is so simple and takes very little time to make.  It was and still is a favourite of mine.

I now usually make an updated version or even versions. You can add all sorts of veggies, shrimp, lobster, thinly sliced steak, chicken and even add egg foo young.  I’m sure she would have loved the adaptions of this simple dish.

IMG_5862Finally chop 1/2 onion, 1/2 red pepper, 1/2 yellow pepper, 1 tomato.

IMG_5868Into a fry pan add a couple glugs of olive oil, heat and add onions and 2 cloves of grated garlic.  Fry for a few minutes then add all of your chopped veggies and fry for about 5 minutes.

IMG_5876Next add about 1/4 cup soya sauce or more.  Bring to a boil.  Cover and reduce to a low simmer for a couple of minutes. Set aside.  Make about 3-4 cups of cooked long grain rice, according to the package directions. Then add the veggie sauce to the rice and mix well.

IMG_5880Serve immediately, nice and hot.  Really good heated the next day.  Think of serving the leftovers in an omelet the next day.  No trust me.  Add some soya sauce into your beaten eggs, heat the leftover rice in you pan then pour the beaten eggs into the rice.  Proceed to make as an omelet.  MMMM good.

RECIPE

3-4 Cups Cooked Rice

1/2 Onion, Finely Chopped

2 Grated Cloves Garlic

1/2 Red Pepper, Finely Chopped

1/2 Yellow Pepper, Finely Chopped

Couple Glugs Olive Oil

1/4-1/2 Cup Soya Sauce, (To Taste)

PREPARATION

Cook enough of your favourite rice according to package directions to make about 4 cups of cooked rice.  While  the rice is cooking, heat olive oil and add onion and garlic.  Fry for a few minutes then add veggies and cook them to your liking.  I like them soft so I don’t get any crunch along with my rice.  Next add the soya sauce and bring to a boil. When rice is cooked add the sauce mixture to the rice and mix well.  I of course, add sriracha sauce because I like my rice hot, (spicy).

ENJOY!!
