Fried Rice

Another recipe from the Minimalist tonight. When we were in Boston our good friend made this for us for dinner, and it was so tasty and so simple, it was a take home recipe. I apologize for no final photo, we may have been too excited to eat it. But it is pretty, and tasty. 2 c cooked rice (love the rice cooker for this) 8 cloves garlic, finely diced 3 inches ginger, finely diced 4 T veggie or peanut oil
1 large bok choy, sliced (or cabbage) 4 eggs sesame oil soy sauce

In a wok or large pan, pour 3 T of oil and add the ginger and garlic. Fry until browning and crispy. With a slotted spoon, take out the ginger and garlic, laying on a paper towel.

With the remaining oil, add bok choy and saute for 2 minutes. Add cooked rice. Cook until heated through.

While the rice is cooking, cook your eggs. We cook them sunny side up for this dish, but I am sure they would be tasty fried or scrambled as well.

Spoon out a bowlful of rice, top with an egg. Then top with a drizzle of sesame oil and soy sauce. Top with a T or so of the crispy fried ginger and garlic. The hubs likes a touch of garlic chilie sauce on top as well for some heat. Oh so tasty and simple. We may have had it for two meals this weekend.

No recipe tomorrow night, it is dollar dog night at Citizen's Bank Park, and we have tickets, and they have veggie dogs. I have never been one for hot dogs, but man, there is something about a hot dog at a baseball game that makes you feel nostalgic. New box soon.
