GARLIC GINGER FRIED RICE

Garlic Ginger Fried Rice

This is the quickest weeknight meal.  I use Trader Joe's frozen Organic Brown Rice, and the dish literally comes together in minutes.  Serve with a side of steamed broccoli or quickly sautéed spinach, and you're set.

Garlic Ginger Fried Rice

Serves 2

1 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. garlic, minced
1 Tbs. ginger, minced
2 scallions, finely chopped, whites and greens separated
1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 cups brown rice

2 fried eggs

Heat a nonstick skillet to medium.  Add olive oil, garlic, ginger, the white and light green parts of the scallions, and red pepper flakes.  Sauté 2-3 minutes until fragrant and just starting to brown. Add rice and incorporate well.  Cook another 2-3 minutes until heated through.

To serve, divide rice between two bowls and top each with a fried egg and the remaining scallion greens.
