Vegetarian Fried Rice/Com Chien Chay (Got rice?)


Food oh Food,oh how do we live without you on this planet earth, whether a vegan or a carnivore, food...,it brings us all together but can drive us all our separate ways once we sub categorize our cultures,preferences, meat or no meat, chicken or rare beef, we foodies are all connected by six degrees of separation, connected by our hunger but segregated by something so simple as smell. Are we propagandist, or servants of food porn? What is our true ideology if we can't find common ground? You eat beef but won't eat pork? Well I have just the answer, how can we continue to write a revolution if we can't agree on our vision. However we can agree that we all eat rice, yellow rice, brown rice, boiled soggy or cooked dry, my interpretation of vegetarian friendly fried rice will serve us all us justice.

Explosive flavor down to the last grain, this concoction will make you want to lick your bowl/plate clean, I know, I may be a bit unconventional but isn't this why you guys love me?

2 cups of cooked rice
1 minced garlic
half a pepper diced
half a yellow onion diced
1 egg
a handful of cooked pea pods/sliced in half
a handful of bean sprouts
2 tablespoons of sliced pineapples
2 tablespoons of vegetarian stir fry sauce(Mushroom shitake)
1 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of vegetarian soy sauce
1 teaspoon of curry powder
1/2 tablespoon of black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of msg

Method for cooking
*Crack an egg over your white rice and stir evenly.(This is so your rice doesn't clump together and is evenly broken post cooking)

*add 2 tablespoons of oil in your wok
*add the minced garlic allow it to pick up aroma
*add your rice,toss,add all of the seasoning minus the stir fry sauce and black pepper
*separate the rice and add bell pepper/onion/pea pod
*add your vegetarian stir fry sauce
*toss everything together
*separate the rice for the last time, add the pineapple/bean sprouts.Toss

Adjust your seasonings according,should you like more soy sauce,vegetarian sauce etc...

    I like how the red bell pepper adds a nice shot of color.

    @Girl Japan oh thank you, if you try please let me know how it turns out...

    @Mai omit the egg and use cooking oil instead. That way it will be totally vegan. Prior to cooking spread cooking oil throughout your rice and with your hands mash through.

    @Wandering Chopsticks hahaha isn't it pretty =)
