I love Chinese fried rice and this is a quick home version made with carrots, peas, and a mix of soy sauce and sesame oil. I go a little heavy on the sesame oil and lighter on the soy sauce.
Cook 3 cups rice according to package instructions. In a skillet heat 1 – 2 tablespoons sesame oil over medium-high heat. I like to use a cast iron skillet which adds an almost caramelized texture. Sauté 2 medium diced carrots for 5 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup frozen peas.
Stir in rice. Add soy sauce to taste stirring to coat. Drizzle in sesame oil according to taste and toss to incorporate all the flavors. Fry another 2 minutes.
You will love the simplicity of this dish. Serve it as a side to all your favorite Asian dishes. It is especially good with General Tso’s Cauliflower Stir-Fry. – Ella💙
