Fried Rice Alternative

Got this recipe idea from a friend. It is something like fried rice but you don't have to fry the rice. It has become my DH's special dish. I have him cook it on Sunday for us to take to church. It is a very versatile dish as you can add in different ingredients each time you cook; it's up to your taste buds or whatever you have available in the fridge. My kids love it. They don't like to eat fried rice but they will eat this.

  • Cooked rice
  • Chicken nuggets
  • Sausages (Americans call it hot dogs)
  • Crab sticks
  • Mixed vegetables (peas, carrots and corn that you normally find in the frozen section of the supermarkets).  Sometimes instead of using mixed vegetables, I use long beans. You can substitute with other vegetables of your choice.

  • Fry chicken nuggets. Then cut into strips. Put aside.
  • Cook the sausages. Cut into slices. (Or you can cut them first before frying). Put aside.
  • Boil the crab sticks until cooked. Cut into smaller bites. Put aside.
  • Saute the mixed vegetables with garlic. Add some soy sauce, sugar and chicken stock. Put aside. 
  • Now mix all the cooked ingredients above with your cooked rice. Mix it up nice and good. Add more soy sauce and salt to taste.

Easy and good to eat. A Bon Appetit!
