September 5, 2013

I’m so excited to have one of my favorite bloggers joining us for a Guest Post today!  I hope you take a minute to visit her adorable blog, and read through this AMAZING Homemade Fried Rice recipe, which I need to try ASAP.  It looks so amazing.

Hey, I’m Tia and I blog over at Events To Celebrate. I’m so excited to be guest posting today! If you visit my blog, you’ll know that I am passionate about parties, entertaining and holidays – but those who know me best, know that I am equally passionate about delicious food! My husband and I especially love Chinese food and I’ve learned over the last couple of years to make our favorite Chinese take-out recipes at home. It saves time, money and I love that I can add more veggies or use healthier cooking methods and we still get to enjoy great food!

I decided the other day that I wanted some fried rice and so I came up with this recipe. It turned out fantastic! I used squash and onion from our garden which was so rewarding to find one more great way to use them!

Fried Rice
1 c long grain white rice
2 c low sodium chicken broth
1 carrot diced in small cubes
2 large eggs fried and diced in 1 tsp of sesame oil
1/4 c diced onion
1/3 c diced yellow squash
1 chopped green onion for garnish
1 minced garlic clove – you can omit this – you can definitely taste it even though it is just one clove
1/2 c frozen peas – thawed
1/2 c cubed cooked pork chop, ham, chicken, shrimp, etc.
3 Tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
5 drops sriracha hot sauce

I use my pampered chef rice cooker – but you can use any rice cooker or just the stovetop method. I combined the rice, broth and carrots in the rice cooker and cooked until done (20 minutes for me).

In the meantime I prepared all of my veggies. I heated 1tsp of sesame oil in a saute pan and cooked two large eggs. Then I chopped them up. I diced my onion, pork (I had a left over grilled pork chop from dinner last night), green onion, squash & garlic.

After removing the egg from the pan, add an additional 1-2 tsp of sesame oil and add your garlic, onion and squash. Cook for 3-5 minutes on medium heat until soft.

Then add in your egg, ham/pork/chicken/shrimp and thawed peas and combine.

Last, you’ll add in the cooked rice and carrots, the soy sauce and sirracha and stir really well to combine everything. The sriracha doesn’t make it too spicy – it just adds a little bit of warmth to the flavors. If you want it to have a bit of heat, add 10 drops – but anymore than that and you’d be better to just serve it at the table and let each person add it to taste. After spooning into bowls, top with a few pieces of chopped scallion for garnish.
