Vietnamese Fried Rice

AuthorJulie
Yields1 Serving
canola or mild olive oil, for cooking
5 cups cold long-grain rice
2 large eggs, lightly beaten with a fork
big pinch dried red chili flakes
1 small bunch of green onions, chopped
1-2 large carrots, coarsely grated
1-2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 cups bean sprouts (optional)
fresh cilantro and chopped salted peanuts, for garnish
Seasoning
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. fish sauce
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1

In a small bowl stir together the sugar, fish sauce and vinegar.

2

In a large, heavy skillet, heat a slick of oil over medium-high heat. Add the rice and cook for a few minutes, until heated through. Push over to one side and pour in the eggs; stir-fry until the eggs are scrambled, allowing them to cook without mixing them into the rice completely (so that you end up with detectable bits of egg); add the chili flakes, then the green onions, carrots and garlic; cook for a few more minutes.

3

Pour over the fish sauce mixture, then add the bean sprouts and cook for a minute, tossing with tongs, just until heated through. Serve immediately, in shallow bowls topped with cilantro and peanuts.

    This is a great recipe for Vietnamese fried rice! The kitchen stir-fry rice, eggs, vegetables and spices at the same time is truly skillful. The aroma of garlic, green onions and spices will definitely make you crave it and want to try it immediately. With options for serving sizes, you can adjust to suit the needs of your family or friends. The final highlight is the mild spiciness from dried chili and the aroma of coriander and peanuts – what a perfect combination! I really want to enjoy this now.
