Ginger Fried Rice Recipe

We would like to introduce a feature food and recipe blogger Brian Ly from
He currently resides in Toronto, an avid foodie and a creative food photographer for an upcoming Foodie shop in Burgundy, France.

“Hey, I'm Brian, and I'm the owner/author of; a food and recipe blog located in Toronto. I was asked by Trish at the Asian Supermarket World Foods and Imports to share my recipes and postings and to encourage others to try out different recipes. I thought I'd start off with something simple, so today I will be posting my ginger fried rice recipe.”

I had a sudden craving for fried rice last night and decided to stir something up. But after a long night, I thought it would be best to take a nap first…8 hours later, I woke up and the magic began.

Ginger Fried Rice Recipe

Prep time: 10 mins – Cooking time: 20 mins 
1/4 cup or less of canola oil 1 tbsp minced garlic 1 tbsp minced ginger some salt 1 cup thinly sliced leeks or cup of scallions – white and green parts 2 cups day-old cooked rice 1-2 large eggs 1-2 teaspoons soy sauce
Heat oil in a large skillet on medium to high heat. Add ginger and garlic into the pan and stir until golden brown. About 30 seconds. When it’s done, remove with a slotted spoon or tip the pan and spoon it out into a bowl lined with paper towel. Salt if desired.
Turn the heat down to low and add the leek/scallions. Scallions take a couple of seconds, but the leeks will take a few minutes. Once they’re sizzling, turn the heat up and add the day old rice and break it in thoroughly.
While the rice is going at it, heat another small pan and start frying the eggs. Once they’re golden around the edges, pop them out.
Lay the rice on a plate and top with egg. Garnish with ginger and garlic and a bit of soy sauce. Enjoy.
Tips Use day old rice. Why? You want fried rice don’t you? Using fresh rice while it’s still warm won’t give it time to release its moisture resulting in a soggy mushy rice. This isn’t a recipe for soggy mushy fried rice now is it?
