Friday Question: Fried Rice

I love carrot fried rice.  Crunchy organic carrots, a few onions, celery, good habanero sauce and peanuts.  Eaten from my favorite little bowl, two chop sticks, and a hot cup of lemongrass decaf green tea.

Seriously good eats.

How about you?  Do you like fried rice?  If so, do you have a top pick?

Or ... maybe you have a least favorite fried rice?  For me, it's chicken fried rice.  I like chicken and rice cook other ways, but I dislike it greatly when cooked fried rice style.

I dunno why, it just doesn't work for me.  But carrot fried rice, why I'll eat that all ding dong day long.

  4. I almost never eat fried food. I do love to put celery in pretty much anything and everything.... And I eat carrots all the time... when me was a lil' bunny I loved to go out to our vegetable patch where I would dig out a carrot and nibble it fresh for mu snack just washed out in the well....

    1. Mine isn't so much fried, but I still call it fried rice. I dunno why. Ohhh, fresh garden carrots. That's a true treat. Very cool.

      Do you like brown rice? I love it. All kinds, really. Long grain, short. I've never had wild rice yet. But if I get a coupon ...

  9. I agree with you, chicken fried rice is so wrong. Taste so blah.
    My favorite rice dish is a Japanese breakfast dish, sticky rice a piece of fish and a few uneboshi (pickled plums) with some soy sauce on the fish. Perfect !
    But my favorite fried rice dish is scramble an egg, chop up what every veggies that are in the frig, a light saute add rice, then egg a dollop of soy sauce and some Ssamjang (Korean soybean paste ) on the side.
    Perfection !

    cheers, parsnip

    1. Yeah, even my own homemade. I just don't care for it, but I love chicken and rice in other dishes. like with my own Hungarian sauce. That's killer.

      Sticky rice is good stuff. I haven't made that in a long while. Hubby likes the scrambled egg in it as well. I don't mind it either, but I find if I'm storing the rice, the egg goes funky, quickly.

      Sounds like you have fun making rice dishes. Very cool. Thanks for sharing, today.

  15. Alas, not a fan of the carrot.

    That said, I'll eat just about any other veg in fried rice, and nothing beats fried tofu and fried rice. :)
